No One Wants You to Know #HowBad #Fukushima Might Still Be! #Radiation leaking into #Sea

No One Wants You to Know #HowBad #Fukushima Might Still Be! #Radiation leaking into #Sea | Now is the Time to Help our Oceans & it's Species ! | Scoop.it
The main point of criticism about Japan’s largest utility company is rooted in one that countless others have voiced since the beginning: a suspicious disregard for keeping the public informed.
Marian Locksley's insight:

This year marked the disaster’s third anniversary, but new accounts of mismanagement and swelling radiation levels continue to surface. In February, TEPCO revealed that groundwater sources near the Daiichi plant and 80 feet from the Pacific Ocean contained 20 million becquerels of the harmful radioactive element Strontium-90 per gallon (one becquerel equals one emission of radiation per second). Even though the internationally accepted limit for Strontium-90 contamination in water hovers around 120 becquerels per gallon, these measurements were hidden from Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority for nearly four months. As a response, the national nuclear watchdog agency censured TEPCO for lacking a “fundamental understanding of measuring and handling radiation.”

 

Dr. Helen Caldicott:  Although Caldicott says what separates Fukushima from Chernobyl is the continuous leakage of radioactive material, in her eyes they’re unified by an institutionalized effort to keep the veil from lifting. “The Japanese government took three months to tell the world that there had been three meltdowns, even though the meltdowns had taken place in the first three days,” she said. “They’re not testing the food routinely. In fact, they’re growing food in highly radioactive areas, and there are stories that the most radioactive food is being canned and sold to third-world countries.”
