We've only just begun: Fukushima groundwater now flowing into the ocean

If the latest worldwide fish kills have anything to do with increased radiation in the seas, get ready for a big cull coming.. The operator of Japan's Fukushima plant--you know, that place worldwide media has systematically ignored since the March 2011 superquake--says that the destroyed plant has begun released radioactive ground water into the Pacific Ocean..

The goal: Rid the site of the immense amount of radioactive waste actually at the site.

Various accounts have painted a troubling picture since the nuke plant went haywire from the tsunami.. TEPCO has been facing the mounting problems of contaminated water. Their solution has is to get rid of it.. but since we live on a relatively tiny little blue planet of land and water, TEPCO's choice was to just "release it" into the ocean..

They are defending their actions of course, by saying that the release is within legal limits and that it's 'safe' in that sense..

But news accounts from Japan have painted a worsening picture of the situation near the Fukushima plant--and also one that makes the 'safe' claim by TEPCO be questioned..

One such report is a problem that will obviously be denied by the nuke industry in Japan: Reports that all workers--up  to 90% of them--fled the Fukushima plant after the initial meltdown in 2011.
There have been various other reports of safety problems, mutations, and general dangers of the Fukushima area over the past several months..

With the ground water release beginning, one important aspect to remember throughout the process is this: It's just beginning.

Another fact: Fukushima released up to 181 quadrillion bq of cesium. Chernobyl was only 105.  And this: The release will be for years to come.


Couple that with the now tainted and to be tainted Pacific Radiation Rim, and you can see why that Fukushima worker pointing his finger at the world was so mysterious, alarming, and predictive. It's our problem now.. The world's problem.. it's not just confined to one destroyed nuke plant.. and certainly not to one ocean.. It's the world's problem. And no one is doing much to deal with it.
