TEPCO admits to at least 94 errors in reported radiation measurements – In one location actual levels 800 times reported measurements
“From Yomiuri Shinbun (8/30/2011):” 東京電力は30日、福島第一原子力発電所の敷地内や周辺で3~5月に計測した放射性物質の値に、94件の誤りがあったと発表した。 TEPCO announced on August 30 that the measurements done on radioactive materials at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant compound and in the surrounding areas from March to May contained 94 errors. 大半は転記ミスや単位の間違いで、放射性物質の濃度が実際の約800分の1になっていたものもあった。 Most errors were from transcription error or the unit errors. In one case, the recorded density of [...]

Fukushima Updated: 3 Fukushima nuke plant workers blasted with beta radiation
At least two workers at the crisis-stricken Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant were blasted with more than 15 millisieverts of beta radiation on Aug. 28, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) has announced. Two of the men were replacing parts of a system for decontaminating radioactive substance-contaminated water when they were irradiated. One [...]

United States needs to pay attention as Japanese breakthrough will make wind power cheaper than nuclear
A surprising aerodynamic innovation in wind turbine design called the ‘wind lens’ could triple the output of a typical wind turbine, making it less costly than nuclear power. (Wind Lens Power. The amounts of money used to research and develop solar, wind, and fuel cell energies are a fraction of that spent on nuclear power. [...]
