Oil was leaking into the sea from heavy oil tanks for reactors 5 and 6 at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Tuesday, adding the spill may have been ongoing since the March 11 quake and tsunami.Tepco said workers at the site saw an oil slick floating on the sea at 8 a.m. Tuesday near the intakes of units 5 and 6.
The oil slick is believed to be 200 to 300 meters long.
What surprises me is that ATS doesn't care anymore either. I can't get but just a few people to talk about this.
Yes and the oceans have natural oil leaks so it's not like nature doesn't know how to deal with a little oil. This one doesn't sound too bad, nothing like the oil leak in the gulf from the deepwater horizon accident.
