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.
