While Japan has been closely guarding radiation data particularly in the most impacted Fukushima region very closely, Zero Hedge has procured a fallout map showing radiation levels in the immediate NPP vicinity. To our surprise, despite Northwesterly
winds (i.e., those blowing from that direction), the bulk of the
fallout is concentrated precisely in that direction with a reading area
30 km NorthWest (see Reading Point 21 on the map below) of the plant showing reading of up to 80 microsieverts. What
is perplexing is that the readings by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency
(JAEA), unfortunately just two of them, differ from the official ones
Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) substantially. The materially higher readings reported by JAEA are notable outliers despite readings in a proximal region by MEXT indicating substantially lower readings. Is the
Ministry of Truth now directly experiments with the radioactive
tolerance of people by cutting the odd zero here and there?
Map of radiation reading points in Fukushima vicinity. Oddly, there are none in a Southwesterly direction, or towards Tokyo.
And below are the actual readings - note the levels for points 22 and 23, both 30 kms from the plant.
