Post webcam observations for January here.  Observations should start with a date and ‘jst’ time (Japan Standard Time) and camera(s).  Describe as best as possible what you see.  Contribute data such as weather conditions, work activities, TEPCO or local news reports, radiation readings, earthquake activity, or any information that documents events occurring at Daiichi.  Comments and analysis welcome.  Help keep an eye on TEPCO's disaster site.

01-02  Happy New Year.  There's not much moving on the Tepcams but I've been seeing some spark activity.  The sparking decreased overall after the roof cover was placed on r3.  There's been an uptick since the vent tower pieces have been cut and removed.  Not as many as there used to be, there's still some radiation around to affect the cams, notably on cam1.  Here's a spark pair to ring in the new year.

01-08  Caught a rainbow on cam4.  At least I hope it was only solar radiation.

01-08  Later that night the cutter put in an appearance.  In one hour I watched the cutter go up to the tower twice but it didn't drop down onto the tower.  The crane returned the cutter to the ground.

01-09  In the morning the cutter goes up the tower again.  The first capture shows a load being moved that was visible on both cams.  The other captures show the cutter going over the tower for another bite.

Wow this rainbow seen as a good omen! Many thanks for the reporting.
Here is how Fuk. looks tonight on WebCam4. The vent tower seems to have lost nearly half a step.
It sure is tough to get rid of that Fuk.(?) or so to speak.

Hi Felibi, I thought the rainbow a good omen, as well as making a nice picture.  What the Fuku do they do with the pieces of the vent tower they bring down?  Fuku dumped in the Ocean, buried on land, or mixed into consumer products.  I'm about a week behind going thru the recordings.  Busy start to the new year for me.  I wonder how far down they plan on chopping the vent tower.  

01-10  The cutter comes off.

Like Chernobyl, the work of dismantling and covering up poison too toxic to approach will go on beyond the life times of anyone alive and their children.  To justify the larger than normal permissible radiation doses, Japan has to be in a state of emergency. And so it is.     Nuclear has been one big cover up as governments and industry try to downplay exclusion zones and fallout poisoning the planet.  The latest risk estimates say more nuclear disasters may occur every few decades.  

Nuclear and government are tightly connected in countries around the world.  The U.S. wants small nuclear reactors to power its never ending war theaters.  Nuclear plants are being built in poor countries like Bangladesh where standards will be compromised.  Spent fuel pools present an ongoing threat to civilization.  

Nuclear is the Sword of Damocles above the head of civilization.   The unmanageable scope of nuclear disasters requires international cooperation, as we see with the Chernobyl sarcophagus and international help with the ongoing Fukushima tragedy.

People and the environment are sacrificed for corporate profit
"It took Ignatenko two weeks to die, during which time he excreted blood and mucus stool more than 25 times a day and coughed up pieces of his own internal organs. Ignatenko was one of 27 firefighters who died of acute radiation sickness in the weeks after the disaster."

we are healthy with background radiation but unhealthy with the same dose from fallout
