More radioactive material to be released into the Pacific Ocean from the failed Fukushima power plant

Now, the Telegraph is reporting that the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), which operates the nuclear plant and has been responsible for cleaning up the mess, has announced the release of radioactive tritium straight into the Pacific Ocean. The announcement has been met with outrage by environmental groups and locals alike.

Among those most affected by the disaster were the fishermen of Fukushima. Even two years into the cleanup operations, The Guardian reported that over 300 tons of radioactive groundwater was still seeping into the Pacific Ocean on a daily basis, not only killing marine life, but obliterating the local fishing industry. After all, nobody wants to risk eating radioactive fish. [Related: London grocery stores have been selling Fukushima rice, despite fears of radioactive contamination.]
