In March, 2011 an earthquake off the coast of Japan caused a Tsunami which hit the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, causing three reactors to melt down and explode.
The Fukushima Daichi Power Plant is located on the coastline of Japan. Like all coastlines, the ground slopes toward the ocean. This created a problem that the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) didn't tell anyone about until a full year after the disaster took place: Ground water, flowing from inland, was seeping beneath the blown-up reactors, coming into contact with the melted-down reactor cores, becoming highly radioactive, then flowing into the Pacific Ocean. 300 Tons of this radioactive water has been seeping into the Pacific Ocean since March 15, 2011. Here's how it is taking place:
TEPCO wanted to build a "freeze wall" (shown in the graphic above) to freeze the ground and the water, to stop the flow. They tried. They failed. The radiation and heat coming from the melted down reactor cores - which melted through the reactor and melted into the ground - is making the water too hot. They can't freeze it. There is no "wall" to stop the flow!
Sadly, the images above aren't nearly the worst of it. Other fishermen and even Marine Biologists have caught other fish showing classic signs of radiation-caused cancerous tumors. "In all the years I’ve been fishing I never caught any fish like this. Caught 3 more sick fish with same markings and this time one had some kind of growths coming out from its mouth. Most people in our community eat this fish." Sam Kunaknana continued.
