Radiation at unimaginable levels 300 tons of radioactive water leaking daily into the Pacific TEPCO needs 40 years to fix with radiation already on West-Coast US


  • Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan is now leaking radiation at record levels.
  • radiation levels could be many time higher than the 530 Sieverts per hour already recorded in other parts of the site 
  • 300 tons of radioactive water leaking into the Pacific every day
  • TEPCO announced it expected to take at least $300 billion and four decades to fix
  • Small amounts of radiation are now being detected of the coast of Oregon and California
It has been revealed radiation levels inside the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan is now leaking radiation at record levels.
And experts believe melted fuel is leaking inside the plant almost daily causing radiation levels high enough to kill people and knock out robots with just brief exposure.
Experts said the radiation levels - as high as 530 Sieverts per hour - are now the highest they've been since 2011 when a tsunami hit the coastal reactor.
"To put this in very simple terms, four Sieverts can kill a handful of people," he explained.
The latest readings are now posing a serious challenge as officials prepare to dismantle the facility.
There is much speculation that radiation levels could be many time higher than the 530 Sieverts per hour already recorded in other parts of the site where robots have yet to reach.
These are unimaginable radiation levels; a robot was sent in and lasted less than hour before radiation took it out, it found a 6ft gaping hole which will somehow have to be patched.
Small amounts of radiation are now being detected of the coast of Oregon and California.  The problem is with 300 tons of radioactive water leaking into the Pacific every day, what is that doing to the Pacific Ocean?"

TEPCO announced it expected to take at least $300 billion and four decades to fix the problem; can we dare imagine what state the Pacific Ocean will be in 40 years if radiation is washing up on the West Coast of America now, less than 6 years after the disaster?
