Japan Finally Admits The Truth: "Right Now, We Have An Emergency At Fukushima"


www.zerohedge.com

Tepco is struggling to contain the highly radioactive water that is seeping into the ocean near Fukushima. The head of Japan's NRA, Shinji Kinjo exclaimed, "right now, we have an emergency," as he noted the contaminated groundwater has breached an underground barrier and is rising toward the surface - exceeding the limits of radioactive discharge. In a rather outspoken comment for the typically stoic Japanese, Kinjo said Tepco's "sense of crisis was weak," adding that "this is why you can't ....

'Just when you thought you could forget it', department.. Well trusting Tepco, you know the group that is said to be building the largest Nuke plant in Texas, has become synonymous with the antics of the beloved Homer Simpson.. has slipped up again.. further bringing the world to the brink.. Now the underground water is bubbling up in high radioactivity as the cores have melted through... and again they don't know what to do.. so dumping the sludge into the Pacific is rapidly becoming their only solution... and now Japan, Inc.. finally admits there is a problem..

This is bad........and it will likely go mostly unreported.
It's so bad no-one has a clue what to do, and because it is silent
..no bangs or smoke they will very likely get away with it too.

I read somewhere that nuking that plant would be degrees better than what they are doing now.

BBC is actually reporting on this now.


A barrier built to contain the water has already been breached, the Nuclear Regulatory Authority warned.

This means the amount of contaminated water seeping into the Pacific Ocean could accelerate rapidly, it said.
www.bbc.co.uk...


Tepco says they can not manage this alone.

This is why you can't just leave it up to Tepco alone"



Tepco admitted on Friday that a cumulative 20 trillion to 40 trillion becquerels of radioactive may have leaked into the sea since the disaster


I would say this is a wake up call if I have ever seen one on Fukushima.

Doubt it Rigel~

This bad boy has been leaking for how long now
and it keeps getting swept under the rug~! How much toxicity has that puppy leaked into the ocean??? Combined with the Gulf Oil spill??? And we wonder why sea mamals are beaching themselves??? They'd rather suffocate than swim in that garbage... Well that's just a theory I guess


Does anyone out there know how to fix this!

and it only took them 2.5 years, friggin a wholes.

it's been crisis since day one at least for anyone paying attention and it's only going to get far worse because we have not the tech to stop it.

Yes, it would take them 40 years now they say....
rt.com...

The containment will not hold up ....

And in the mean time....
They have not even tested the strontium levels in the sea..

could someone explain to me what effects this will have both long time and short. will it completely pollute the pacific?

I realise I probably sound very stupid but would like to know just how serious this is.

thanks.

Why cant they pump it into steel/lead drums and bury it in some old mine shaft like they do with the rest of the waste.

Nuke the nuclear plant? Ironic.

400 tonnes of water a day is hard to store.. think of the containers needed to store
that amount of water , and the the space to store it, and then maintain it.
for a thousand years or something this will go on.

Stupid fools.. and still they build them.

I wouldn't recomend that. Most of us know about the giant sink hole threatening some buried waste out in Louisiana. Not a good idea.
I say gather all these giant money corporations witch only care for money and stick them in a hole full of dynamite.
Bunch of a$$hole$!

I think most of us here already knew that they were hiding the truth about the actual devastation and extent of the contamination.

But to wait this long to finally admit "Hey, we screwed up. It's worse than we anticipated" is beyond ludicrous.

What do they do now and how will it affect the Western coastline of the US?
Will our government hide the truth also hoping we'll bury our heads in the sand and forget about it?

Such a shame.
A serious dilemma for both humans and sea life.

ETA:

Its operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), has been criticised heavily for its lack of transparency over the leaks.


Hmmm, this lack of transparency seems to be contagious.....

Indeed. I'm sure (if I remember correctly ) radioactive water was ready to enter the Pacific by July 2011. "It must be worst than we thought " INDEED

Have been waiting for this

Now we are officially FOCKED

I, for a year after fukushima, would have to pick my jaw off the ground. Usually when I tried to have a conversation with people about the radiation I could see them looking for a van take me back to the loony bin I escaped from...

at times, I felt like I needed to be taken away.

That plant is beyond every control.
What are japanese authorities doing ffs?
Storm the damn place, dismantle Tepco, punish those responsible for mismanagement and cover up

Why they haven't developed a program to launch nuclear waste into the sun is beyond me...are costs more important than the future of our planet?

400 tonnes of water would be almost impossible to store, just launch it into the sun and let it burn off.
