via AlJazeera.com / July 23, 2013 / The operator of Japan’s stricken Fukushima nuclear power plant has said contaminated ground water had likely been flowing into the sea, acknowledging such a leakage for the first time.

Tepco has been repeatedly blamed for overlooking early signs, and covering up or delaying the disclosure of problems and mishaps
The head of Japan’s new Nuclear Regulation Authority, created since the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami wrecked Fukushima, said this month he believed contamination of the sea had been continuing since the accident.
The admission came when company general manager, Masayuki Ono, told news conference that plant officials have come to believe that radioactive water that leaked from the wrecked reactors and is likely to have seeped into the underground water system and escaped into sea.
Nuclear officials and experts have suspected a leak from the Fukushima Dai-ichi since early in the crisis, but Tepco had previously failed to confirm the ground water leakage more than two years.

  1. So the cover-up goes on, I suppose the Japanese and American governments have issued an outright publicity ban on any coverage of the disaster, which is as we speak, is poisoning the whole planet, surely Tokyo is affected greatly by now? Show some balls and tell the truth for a change!

  2. Watch the live webcam, especially at night, the hard radiation affecting the sensors of the camera is very evident, this is the real news the news the authorities don’t want you to know about. The diversionary news about the NSA snooping on us is old news, anyone with half a brain cell will know that.

  3. This map does NOT show the radioactive plume. It’s a tsunami map from 2011!

  4. Thank you for the feedback. The map has been removed.
