Japan begins release of treated Fukushima water

Japan began releasing into the ocean the first tranche of more than a million tons of treated radioactive wastewater from the ruined Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on Thursday.

The Japanese government and Tokyo Electric Power Company, which operated the plant and is overseeing its decommissioning, have promised that the water is safe for humans and that they will monitor the continuing release to make sure that radioactive material does not exceed international standards.

Ever since a huge earthquake and tsunami in 2011 led to a meltdown at the Fukushima plant, Tepco, as the power company is known, has used water to cool the ruined nuclear fuel rods that remain too hot to remove. As the water passes through the reactors, it picks up nuclear materials. The power company runs the cooling water through treatment plants that remove most radioactive nuclides except for tritium, which the International Atomic Energy Agency said in July will not pose a serious health threat to humans if released to the ocean.


China said it would suspend imports of Japanese seafood in response to what it has called an unsafe plan to dispose of the wastewater.


It will flow like the THAAD electromagnetic wave ghost story or the incitement of mad cow disease. If there is no problem for a few weeks or months, it seems like fucking leftists will shut their mouths. All of the Democratic Party of Korea agitation is like that.


I hope that those who do not eat American beef, saying that it will damage their brains, stop eating seafood today.

It is also a problem to incite people with treated Fukushima water, which has less than 1/100 the radioactivity of a banana, but those who are instigated are also rude. Dogs and pigs who are silent about North Korean nuclear bombs and Chinese nuclear wastewater!

If you want to write a comment, do some research and write it, fucking Reds. China emits more than 50 times more polluted water than Japan, but why can't you say anything to China and only say something to Japan? cowardly bastards. You guys who hate Japan are being incited because you're retards.


The government and plant operator say the release is an unavoidable part of its decommissioning and will be safely carried out, but the plan faces opposition in and outside Japan.
