Radioactive water from Japanese reactor is still leaking into the Pacific Ocean



Two different people told me about this at work and I’m wondering why it’s not more prevalent in the news given it’s global significance. Apparently, the Fukushima nuclear reactor is still leaking radioactive water and it’s coming our way. Radioactive water leaks continue to contaminate the Pacific Ocean’s ecosystem, and thus, the entire world’s food supply.

All we heard was something about Japan donating money to help Canada clean up Tsunami debris off it’s coast. I thought that was rather bizarre at the time. Japan gets hit with a Tsunami and they send us money. That’s kind of backwards. Yet this global eco crisis with radioactive water killing the world’s food supply is much more pressing.

300 tons of radioactive groundwater is leaking every day into the plant's harbor and on into the Pacific Ocean. That’s over two and a half years after the March 2011 reactor accident. That is a huge amount of radioactive water contaminating the ocean.

  1. Hey there Agent K. I've been seeing some new reports this month on the Hanford Nuclear problem in Washington State. They're worth a read and it doesn't seem the problem is getting fixed at all.

    1. Very good point. I was going to mention that and tie it in as well. It’s totally related as well as this whole obsession with nuclear power when Japan and Germany are having huge protests against it for obvious reasons: http://gangstersout.blogspot.ca/2013/06/washington-reactor-is-leaking.html

  2. I mailed you two years ago and told you this was a HUGE concern. And what is in the air is worse. And the fact that the Japanese recently started moving the spent fuel rods manually is worse than that. And worse than that is if Reactor #4 collapses from - another earthquake or tsunami or from the fact the ground under the reactor is so saturated from the water dumped over the last ~three years. If that happens, get the **** to Brazil.

    This is the worst environmental disaster in human history.

    1. Sorry, sometimes I fall behind and miss a story.
      This is huge indeed. Thanks for the link.

  3. Sad news for all of us. And yet no one ever seems to be doing anything about this.

  4. The government keeps us all in the dark about how bad it is, and now Japan has made it so if caught as a whistle-blower you can face 10 years in prison. It's worth researching what you can but with that law I'm sure even less truth will come out
