Situated over an underground river with possibly tens of thousands of liters of highly radio active water leaking into the groundwater per day.

The company that ran the plant is in charge of the site still and they are doing f... all about it. This reactor should never have been built on this site for so many reasons and it was poorly designed to handle any tsunami.

The radiation is already detected throughout the entire Pacific Ocean. The radiation particles do not sink to the bottom they are suspended in seawater.

Island people of the Pacific depend on fish for protein they will have to eat contaminated fish.

Seems to me the largest ocean in the world is be destroyed and nobody on this planet gives a rats arse about it. Governments more worried about the Syrians.

Get real people, I guess we are all doomed so loosing our biggest ocean doesn't matter. Not to mention birth defects etc.
I think the Japanese gov has taken over from TEPCO and they are planning on putting in "ground freeze technology" to contain the waste water.. and the stuff in the tanks, (are /were not a long term solution from the start) and the mess is surely being monitered,how else could we know that it is leaking? Its ugly from any angle huh?
