In case anyone has forgotten, Fukushima is still going full blast in its contamination of the planet. TEPCO is trying its best to convince everyone that its not that bad. They had a sudden unexplained rise in radiation that was 50 to 70 times normal. What is normal for Fukushima?? They did reassure everyone that not one of the MANY tanks storing the highly radioactive waste has leaked. And this was one of several incidents that have occurred in recent months. (What were the others??) http://news.yahoo.com/fresh-nuclear-leak-detected-fukushima-plant-092631572.html
In addition, there is ground water that has been coming down from nearby mountains that also happen to run under the nuclear plant and then out into the ocean. Ah, guess what kind of water is running into the ocean after it runs through all that contaminated land that Fukushima sits on? And Japan will be hosting the next Olympics. Well they will be saving on electricity since everyone there will be glowing in the dark anyway.
I will go hunting on the web and see what else I can find out. AH! On BBC’s website it says that 300 tons of nuclear waste has leaked from a storage tank! AND that it is much worse than reported. Well, it figures that our news would be wrong altogether. (here in the United States) Here is the BBC link: http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-23779561 This article says that there is water leakage EVERYWHERE. The head of Japan’s nuclear regulation authority, Shunichi Tanaka, says that there will be more leaks. There are 1,000 of these storage tanks. The BBC article shows a cross section diagram of how the water from the mountains run under the plant and how leaking storage tanks contaminate the water as it runs toward the Pacific Ocean.
There is a lot more going on that has not been reported. They can’t control it, they can’t decommission the plant and they can’t clean up the mess. What we are not hearing is what condition are the Japanese people in? I know I had previously read a few years back that tumors were showing up in the throat (thyroid gland) of the Japanese children. I can’t imagine how far this has advanced since then which is being hushed up.
