Japan delaying cleanup of towns near nuclear plant
"Radiation cleanup in some of the most contaminated towns around Fukushima's nuclear power plant is behind schedule, so some residents will have to wait a few more years before returning, Japanese officials said Monday. Environment Ministry officials said they are revising the cleanup schedule for six of 11 municipalities in an exclusion zone from which residents were evacuated after three reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant went into meltdown following the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami. The original plan called for completing all decontamination by next March."
TEPCO doesn't have enough money to fix this.
The Japanese public will be required to pay for this.
Million and millions of gallons of radiated water stored in fragile tanks.
Possible fission reaction ongoing in melted core/s revealed by cesium and other readings in leaking groundwater.
Damaged fuel storage pool with thousands of fuel rods and susceptible to another earthquake or tidal wave.
Should these towns be re-opened with the Fukushima meltdown still out of control?
Should the exclusion zone be enlarged?
Is the fuel rod threat in the storage pool enough threat to stop re-opening the towns?
Are the melted fuel cores, especially the one that has melted through containment enough threat to stop re-opening the towns?
Japan, a super high tech Nation, has asked for International help and who will be able to help?
Radiation contaminated water in huge quantities seeps into the Pacific daily and does this worry you?
All "Nuke" plants are on major waterways and does this worry you?
Should all "Nuke" plants be made illegal?
