Radioactive ‘Nuclear Coffin’ May be Leaking into the Pacific Ocean

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has sounded the alarm over a giant concrete dome built 40 years ago in the Marshall Islands to contain radioactive waste from Cold War-era atomic tests.

According to Guterres, the dome – which houses approximately 73,000 cubic meters of debris on Runit island, part of the Enewetak Atoll – may be leaking radioactive material into the Pacific Ocean, as the porous ground underneath the 18? thick dome was never lined as originally planned. It was constructed in the crater formed by the 18-kt Cactus test.
