Petition To Stop Release Of Radioactive Water From Fukushima Into Pacific Ocean
Evidently this new petition has struck a deep chord. In less than 24 hours, there are over 200 signers, many from Europe.
Briefly, there are 866 storage tanks at Fukushima Daiichi, each holding 1000 TONS of highly radioactive water, which has been used to cool the reactor cores. This makes a total of 866,000 TONS of water, with 350 tons added every day. In addition, there are 13,400 tons of highly contaminated water in Reactor 1, 15,800 tons in Reactor 2, 16,900 tons in Reactor 3 and no more fuel but 14,500 tons of water in Reactor 4, a total of 60,600 tons! The Japan NRA wants all this water to be discharged into the Pacific, as the site is running out of space to build more tanks.
Please sign and disseminate this new petition:
