The leak of highly radioactive water at Fukushima has stopped, as less radioactive water is dumped into the sea to make room in storage tanks for more radioactive water. A scary NRC report leaked to the press recommends, among other things, that nitrogen be injected into the containment at the plants to stave off another hydrogen explosion, and TEPCO will will be doing that today or tomorrow.
The IAEA should share blame for standards, he said, arguing it was too close to corporations building and running plants. And he dismissed an emergency incident team set up by the Vienna-based agency as “only a think-tank not a working force”:
“This is only a fake organization because every organization which depends on the nuclear industry — and the IAEA depends on the nuclear industry — cannot perform properly.
“It always will try to hide the reality.
“The IAEA … is not interested in the concentration of attention on a possible accident in the nuclear industry. They are totally not interested in all the emergency organisations.”
