Outside experts worry that if contaminated water is released, there will be lasting impact on the environment. […]

TEPCO claims the treated water from this new system is clean enough to be potentially released into the ocean, although it hasn’t said whether it would do that. […]

  1. This is so much *Nuclear Baloney* (NB) since TEPCO has been allowing radioactive water (what they call cooling water” to leak, run and be dumped into the Pacific Ocean since 3/11/11, while the rest of the world looks the other way!

    It would be one thing if they spread this water equally over the worlds ocean in a scientific way but quite something else to just dump it into the Pacific Ocean and HOPE for the best….

    Added to this Debacle is the fact that Japan is now burning radioactive waste 24/7 and dumping the radioactive sludge into Tokyo Bay so that they cannot be accused of dumping it into the Pacific Ocean, while at the same time adding ever more radionuclides to the air we all breathe!
