Tepco has finally admitted that radioactive-contaminated water has been leaking into the Pacific Ocean. Surprise, surprise. The Japanese nuclear regulatory commission, which is in bed with the nuclear industry, has already said so.
Huge increases in the amount of cesium-137, strontium-90, and tritium have been found recently in trenches and pools under the plant. Contaminated fish have been found in the sea far away from the plant for some time.
Tepco announced in December 2011 that the plant was in “cold shutdown”. A lie, huh? They have also admitted that more than 10 times the number of Fukushima workers have been exposed to carcinogenic amounts of radiation than they reported to the WHO last year. It is not surprising that criminals lie about the crimes they have committed.
“We would like to offer our deep apology for causing grave worries for many people, especially for people in Fukushima,” Masayuki Ono, Tepco’s general manager, told a news conference in comments broadast on public NHK television.
So they apologize for making people worry? What about the murder of the largest ocean on earth? What about the sickness, the death, the millions and probably BILLIONS that will die from their incompetence and mendacity? Children’s lives blighted, dying in agony? They’re talking about creating anxiety?
Tepco said that based on water sample tests, any impact of the leakage appeared to be contained by silt fences erected near the devastated reactors.
A silt fence is gonna stop the ocean from being contaminated? Are they nuts? They didn’t even bother to build a cofferdam, not that that would have made much difference either.
This item has generated news stories in the mass media, but itself has little significance. The real issue is the silence of the US government, the UN, the mass media, the medical industry, and all other institutions which have failed to recognize the enormity of the situation, and have either stuck their heads in the sand like ostriches, or are actively collaborating with nuclear sociopaths in destroying all life on earth for money.
