Enson Inoue has been traveling to the exclusion zone to feed the abandoned pets and to bring aid to evacuees in temporary housing. His even more notable trip was the one he took inside Fukushima Daiichi.
Inoue suited up with some contractors and easily entered the plant complex. He took two dosimeters with him, one outside his Tyvek suit, another inside.
“Well those suits aren’t working. They do nothing. If the meter on the outside of my suit was reading 19 micro seiverts or whatever, the one on the inside was reading around 17. The suits don’t do jack s***. They aren’t protecting those workers. I don’t understand how those people are allowed to go in. They have a false sense of security.”
He had prepared for his trip into the plant and sought the advice of a former marine with nuclear experience. When asked about the workers understanding of the risks at the plant he said this.
“No, they don’t know anything. They take off their masks all the time, and they don’t have meters or anything. All the workers are like that. When they first started going in they were freaking out over every little thing, but as time goes by, because you don’t feel it or see it, you get careless.”
This counters statements by TEPCO that workers including sub contractors are being trained and given proper equipment.
Inoue also talked in detail about the plight of the evacuees and how the government policies are putting people in impossible situations. The entire interview is worth the read and can be found here.
