Fukushima Leaks Radioactive Water for 2 Years, 300 Tons into Pacific Daily

(August 7, 2013) The rate at which contaminated water has been pouring into the Pacific Ocean from the disabled Fukushima nuclear plant is worse than thought before, an Industry Ministry official said as PM Shinzo Abe pledged to step up efforts to halt the crisis.

"We think that the volume of water is about 300 tons a day," said Yushi Yoneyama, an official with the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, which regulates Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO).

Abe put the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry in charge of the situation, while demanding that the plant's operator, TEPCO take the necessary steps to deal with the cleanup, which is anticipated to take more than 40 years at a cost of US$11 billion.

On Wednesday TEPCO confirmed the leak but refused to confirm the quantity being emitted from the plant.

"We are not currently able to say clearly how much groundwater is actually flowing into the ocean," Tokyo Electric Power spokesman Noriyuki Imaizumi told Reuters when asked for an estimate.

Too bad the dumbasses didn't have the proper maintenance and precautionary measures to help and clean up a problem as bad as this , yet they still continue to allow it and not care! Usually with anything in life, you must always have a backup plan, but as you can see with nuclear power and radiation, a back up plan is useless when you don't have the right technology to deal with your problem! Kind of like sending a preschooler to school at an advanced theoretical astronomical physics! It just doesn't make sense! This is what happens when societies get to big for their own electrical output and have to switch to nuclear to try and solve their inadequacy problems, which could have been done more easily with less environmental problems! I give it three years before all oceans are over taken by this over whelming radiation problem! Told you you needed to stay away from nuclear power a few years back, but no one ever seems to listen to what i have to say! LMAO , Guess you get what you give in this world and all i been given is constant shit!
