Fukushima leaks: OLD problem finally addressed by media

Japan’s nuclear regulator warns of new leak

Japan’s nuclear regulator has warned that it has been struggling to contain a new leak at the Fukushima nuclear plant. An underground barrier fails to retain radioactive water and much of it could seep into the Pacific Ocean. Al Jazeera’s Dominic Kane reports.

Fukushima nuclear waste still leaking into Pacific

RTAmerica on Aug 9, 2013

It’s been two years since an earthquake and tsunami took down a nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan, but have any new regulations been installed to prevent future disasters? Paul Gunter, the director of the Reactor Oversight Project at Reactor.org, weighs in on all things nuclear with RT’s Erin Ade.

  6. Well, we treated Japan to Hiroshima and Nagasaki; now Japan is treating us to Fukushima. How much longer will the nuclear industry be allowed to kill life on Earth? Should be interesting to see how ‘money’ can get us out of this kerfuffle.

    What then are the inferences that must be drawn from this? What are the expected consequences of so much radioactivity in the Pacific?

    Does this mean the entire marine ecosystem will become contaminated? Where will this lethal material end up? Presumably within organisms that are already choking on sea-plastics, all the way up the food chain, including whales and humans.

    This situation is not only disturbing, it is dangerously close to becoming an environmental disaster that is so far beyond the range of scalability, as to be an unmitigated horror story for all ocean life and indeed, life everywhere.
