Japan to Dump Radioactive Fukushima Water Into the Pacific Ocean

A Japanese official has just publicly announced that they might end up dumping radioactive water from the destroyed Fukushima nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean.

The disturbing pronouncement came from the environment minister of Japan himself, Yoshiaki Harada. According to Harada, Tokyo Electric (Tepco), the firm tasked with the cleanup is running out of room to store the liquid, MailOnline reports.

On March 11, 2011, a massive earthquake caused three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant to meltdown, releasing radiation into the air and forcing the evacuation of more than 160,000 people from the area. Tepco has had to continually use fresh water to cool the reactors over the last eight years.

Through the process, the company has so far collected over 1 million metric tons of contaminated water stored in 900 tanks on the grounds at Daiichi, reports CNET.

Harada says there would be no space left to contain the hazardous water by 2022.

“The only option will be to drain it into the sea and dilute it,” Harada was quoted as saying during a press briefing. “The whole of the government will discuss this, but I would like to offer my simple opinion.”

It leaked an untold amount into the ocean already, why would anyone be outraged?

.
I just assumed they were leaking radioactive water all along. I wonder what the long-term damage to the Sea will be.

Radiation cause damage long term. Two headed whale, three headed Chinaman. Coral reef and all the little fishes cast radiant glow for two million years. Then some other species clean up mess.

Yes. tons of it already has been leaking into the ocean and groundwater

the reactor is STILL IN MELTDOWN MODE

that is what people dont' know

Forbes is saying it's A-OK to dump this radioactive water into the ocean!!

It's Really OK If Japan Dumps Radioactive Fukushima Water Into The Ocean

He went so far as to say it is “the only option”. Which is actually true.

They just don’t have any room left to store it. And storing it is the wrong strategy anyway. TEPCO has collected more than 250 million gallons of contaminated water from the cooling pipes used to keep fuel cores from melting since the plant was destroyed by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in 2011.

The funny thing is that putting this water in the ocean is actually the best way to handle it. And that’s because it’s contaminated mainly with tritium, the least radioactive, and least harmful, of all radioactive elements. All of the other radioactive elements have been removed from the water by chemical treatment down to low levels and the amount of other elements in the water is relatively small and wouldn’t pose a hazard, especially diluted to this level.

And yet all we hear from the media and the various NGOs is alarmist BS about climate change and crickets about this real danger to the planet.

The fake news about the Amazon fires received far more coverage.

I'm very curious how Japan has developed a technology to get rid of all radioactive elements besides Tritium.

If this is true and according to them Tritium is harmless, then I guess the situation isn't so dire?

I'm not sure even he wants to save whales that glow in the dark?

RE: Japan Admits it has to dump radioactive water into the pacific ocean
this is SOOO BAD for the psyche of Japan and I rarely hear it mentioned

Japan prides itself on cleanliness and the purity of their water and land

Fukushima just messed all that shit up.

SE asians, Chinese and Koreans are SCARED of Japanese produce and fish now.
