TEPCO had said a few days ago that the radioactive water being held by a barrier could top that barrier within 3 weeks and once it did it would flow fast and freely into the Pacific Ocean.
Well, it didn't take 3 weeks but only 3 days for that to happen.
TEPCO announced that the water has now officially topped the barrier that was holding it back. They have no idea what to do and there is no containing the toxic flow of radioactivity into the Pacific.
Contaminated groundwater accumulating under the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant has risen 60cm above the protective barrier, and is now freely leaking into the Pacific Ocean, the plant’s operator TEPCO has admitted.The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), which is responsible for decommissioning the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, on Saturday said the protective barriers that were installed to prevent the flow of toxic water into the ocean are no longer coping with the groundwater levels.
The contaminated groundwater, which mixes with radioactive leaks seeping out of the plant, has already risen to 60cm above the barriers – the fact which TEPCO calls a major cause of the massive daily leak of toxic substances.
This is so sad and this is not something that can just be cleaned up. Our oceans are the Earth's life blood and ours too. The oceans create oxygen for us.
I will say over and over again! SHUT DOWN EVERY NUCLEAR POWER PLANT IN THE WORLD! IT IS THE MOST TOXIC AND UNCLEAN FORM OF ENERGY THERE IS!
Now all the ocean's marine life will die from radioactivity at some point. Will we have 100 foot long whales and sharks?
Why aren't we hearing from governments around the world calling for radioactive testing of seafood from the Pacific? Why aren't we hearing governments calling for radioactive testing of products from Japan?
Oh, right...... they made agreements not to do that. Hillary specifically signed an agreement with Japan not to test any food or products coming from there.
I wonder..... if we sent Obama, Clinton, Biden, Holden and the rest of that gang some salmon and Blue fin Tuna from the shores of Japan if they would eat those gifts from us? Or...would they have their food tested?
We really should all send seafood to those in D.C. and all of our elected officials and make them eat it.
Our Earth is being killed and those at the top are the parasites who have made the Earth toxic through greed. The truth is there has been real alternative energies known for decades by those at the top, but they have kept them away for money and power. The oil and energy companies have not wanted people to have "free" energy. This way they control all. Now what have they done? They have and are killing the Earth from Greed, pure and simple?
I wonder if those who control it all are happy? Does billions/Trillions make you happy? Does the money make you happy? Does seeing the Earth die and the animals upon it die due your greed make you happy? When the Earth dies and you can not eat any of the food from the ocean nor land, where will be your control, money and happiness?
All my life, even when I was a kid I wondered how those at the top were "short sighted" and did not think about the future of the Earth and people when it came to hearing about different news and the "bottom line" at that moment.
