Toxic strontium found in Fukushima groundwater


www.abc.net.au

Highly toxic radioactive strontium has been found in groundwater near the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.

It is the first time the substance has been detected in groundwater near the plant's No. 1 and No. 2 reactors.

The operator of the Fukushima plant has also confirmed strontium up to 240 times the legal limit has been found in seawater near the facility.

Strontium (play /ˈstrɒntiəm/) is a chemical element with the symbol Sr and the atomic number 38. An alkaline earth metal, strontium is a soft silver-white or yellowish metallic element that is highly reactive chemically. The metal turns yellow when exposed to air. It occurs naturally in the minerals celestine and strontianite. The 90Sr isotope is present in radioactive fallout and has a half-life of 28.90 years. Both strontium and strontianite are named after Strontian, a village in Scotland near which the mineral was first discovered.

Sad to hear it's getting into the ground water now, but of course that was to be expected.
The question is now, what will they do about it?
And it will get worse, TEPCO is unable to store the radioactive waste water.


My thoughts go out to does people, they don't seem to catch a break.

This just make me think more of why don't people evacuate the country before they all are dead.
seriously.

Because it would send the Western world in a serious tail spin.. the final nail in the coffin.. the sad fact is that people are worth less than profits.

might be too late to evacuate now..I think the damage has been done, and it will take time to see the affects in the land, people, and animal.

At some point in the very near future, they will have to leave that island! The thing is where do they all go? With all the world's countries in financial trouble, which one will step up and take these people in? I can only think of a handful that would! I have read on threads that some ATS members think that this is no big deal that the world will not end and that is true but the japan world on that island will indeed end! Every day there is more crap poring out of that plant and spreading from it and at some point it will be to much to clean up!

Somehow I doubt the entire island's groundwater is hopelessly contaminated at this moment. Maybe a large radius around Fukushima, but still... It could get that bad later, maybe it will because they have no real solutions, but how do you expect 300 million people to leave, and where will they go?

I never thought of it before, but Japan was one of the top three global economies. I guess its rivals, especially those involved in hi-tech exports (like China and the US) just gained from this big time if Japan needs to evacuate.

I hope the sea can recover, This and all the oil we have split on top of all the
nasty industrial waste we have been pumping in for the last 200 years+

There is even an estimated 200kg of plutonium (en.wikipedia.org...) dumped in the sea between England and Ireland from power plants in the north west. We dont have that many nuke plants and thats just one small sea, i hate to think what the rest of the nuke power nations are dumping in the sea too.

We learn the water cycle as kids, it will only be so long before its all bad, bad rivers, bad sea, lakes, bad rain, clean water will cost more than oil if were not carefull!

I remember a guy at work telling me about future wars over water, then a few months later seeing it someplace on ATS.

Is there any way of removing this radioactive filth from the sea? (Thats not made by BP)

Maybe there is some truth in that, I guess for large parts of Africa life is cheaper than water right now.
I do hope one day we can all look back and see how dumb a species we were!
