I came across this video which gives a different view. A birds eye view of where the Fukishima waste is being stored, the amount, and how close it sits to the Pacific Ocean.



Sorry this isn't a current event more of an ongoing event. Please move if necessary. Thank you

Well the plant itself is very close to the shore, if the bags are indeed contaminated waste/soil, they ought not be there should another event occur. That's all I can say.

looks like they are waiting for a big wave to take it all away. it´s the saddest sandcastle ever.

The imagery you just put in my head..

Powerful. You hit me a little too hard though.

i feel so safe and secure..GLAD man has saved us all.
now what?........
when these bags start degrading..what next? double bags?
sheesh..this is so depressing..no one has a clue.

Noooo! Makes me want to cry! And the people are so intelligent, why can't they come up with a better solution? Are there not any?

This is an ongoing issue that can never be managed, another wave will come and the Pacific ocean will die over time.

Its surreal, a third of the oceans will die Revelation 8:9 a third of the living creatures in the sea died.

I know biblical prophecy is not well respected and all the doom porn upsets people but....

i just find it eerie that people can switch off, dont understand the full problem of the contamination , but then there is nothing anyone can do about it so what is the point worrying

I can't help but wonder if a part of this hasn't already fallen into the ocean. I mean it looks like they have been storing it like this for quite awile. I Would have to guess the tide from the original disaster took quite a bit with it the first time. Wonder when and where those drums will show up.

Right ! it's moved from point A to point B .... Now what ?

Encapsulate it all in concrete? IDK

Yes!
Major, severe problem, that MUST be fixed ASAP!

Meanwhile, politicians and other assorted idiots are wasting time and resources on CO2 and other non-problems.

The main problem with fixing Fukushima is that Gore and similar opportunists have no way of making money with this crisis.

Thats the problem when Radioactive waste escapes containment. Every time you handle it you generate more waste in the form of gloves, suits, bags, loaders, trucks, etc. Every time it rains on site the runoff floods and overflows the basements and covers the site with a fresh layer of contamination, then they have to scoop it up and put it in bags all over again before they can go back to work.

People just don't understand there is no ridding the planet of it. It will outlive those sacks by many eons. Others who want it moved… to where, exactly? Your backyard? Inland? Then you have the problem of leaking or accidents on trucks littering the road with it on the way to the new site.

All one accomplishes is to spread it around more than it already is.

Nuclear power is a joke.

It's a scary area! I have not yet seen these mounds of what look like oversized black plastic garbage bags stacked into huge plateaus.

I worked for a huge mapping company about a year ago, and we had all sorts of updated aerials over the past few years. Before I left I did a good scan of the progress on Fukushima and mostly saw the addition of tons of those large white plastic silos for contaminated liquids. They accumulated hundreds of them over a year or so span, they were everywhere, but these black bag mounds seem new all within the past year.

I had a bunch of street view from very near the plant too (not sure if they ever made it public), and it made me insanely sad to see only a few people wearing chem suits in the plant transport vehicles (city was devastated, collapsed and overgrown), and there were elderly cops wearing only dustmasks directing traffic and doing security duties. They were ALL looking at the street view car like it was crazy, everyone had a death stare, because I bet every one of the men I saw in dustmasks is now deceased.

Oh yeah and everything is supposedly under control

Under control and resolved are two different things. When you have a fire burning you can contain it and consider it to be "under control", but it's still burning and causing damage.

The same applies here. But the real concerning thing is that what they consider to be under control could very easily become completely out of control with another geological event, a weather event, Human error, or any one of a number of other things.

The only near solution I can see for this is for them to construct a vast concrete bunker to secure it all and shield it, this is the way they deal with nuclear contamination already and I can't see that changing any time soon.

Personally, I think we need to prioritize and consider the management of nuclear waste as being as much of a priority as research to fight cancer. There has to be a long-term solution to this, and the best one would be finding a way to make this stuff useful. We should have international teams of scientists thinking outside the box, whose sole mission it is to find a way to deal with this waste. There simply has to be a way to remove, condense and contain the radiation from such waste to render it harmless, and we need to be spending as much of our time and resources on figuring this out as we have done on other areas of scientific research.

Everything has value and a purpose, if you look hard enough. I fully believe that if we dedicated enough time and energy to this problem Humanity would be able to find a way to properly "scrub" waste to condense the contaminant down or eradicate it completely, or even make it useful in the process, just as we have learned to do with every other fuel source through necessity.

I am so used to BS type opinion from you at this point

If Japan listened to Russia instead of your westerns masters they would entomb the whole thing and forget about it

Instead of non stop poisoning the pacific

Where do you think this will eventually accumulate big time

USA

Oh right you don't care you are probably British

The Earth is offering us such nice sinkholes and we may just don't understand.
It would be elegant if the waste could find the way to the core and we could give all kinds of siht back to the planet.

let's just dump in on chernobyl. That place is already screwed.

At least the Russians did the right thing......The only thing. The Japanese are full of foolish pride and misplaced hope. They figure new technology will come and save the day.....YA.



Entomb this now.......It is the only way. At this point the Japanese should be criminally and financially accountable. I say let the Russians control this entire operation. Personally I think something fishy was going on at that plant and they want to keep secrets for some reason.

What kind of lunatics would put those bags of contaminated radioactive soil next to the shore? ~$heopleNation
