Both the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) and the German VGB PowerTech e.V. raise a very important question in their May 7, 2011, report regarding the suspicious explosion at reactor 4 which had been defueled in November of 2010:Although they rightfully question what happened to reactor 4 of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, their investigation is based on the fact that there was a 9.0 earthquake on March 11, 2011, wrongfully [1, 2] following data provided by the USGS.
On March 11, 2011, an artificial earthquake caused a tsunami at the East coast of Japan. According to Japan’s own readings and reports the magnitude was 7.9.
Minutes later the USGS comes along and tells Japan it’s 8.8 (which was later again changed by the USGS to 9.0-9.1, not by Japan).
SpuurM: “So wait… The sources in JAPAN (where the quake happened) determined it was a 7.9magnitude ….and then the US calls em to CORRECT them??”
