Extremely High Radiation Leak At Fukushima Plant: 25 TRILLION Bq Of Strontium-90 And Other Beta Emitters

TV: “Extremely high levels of radioactive substances” leaked Wednesday night at Fukushima plant — 25 trillion becquerels of Strontium-90 and other beta emitters estimated to have flowed out — “Investigation is still underway” (VIDEO) (ENENews, Feb 19, 2014):

NHK, Feb. 19, 2014: Highly radioactive water leaks at Fukushima plant […] [Tepco] says water containing extremely high levels of radioactive substances has leaked from a storage tank. [and] was found on Wednesday night […] the water leaked from a seam near the top of the tank. It traveled along a rainwater pipe and flowed outside the barrier that surrounds the tank. […] Officials say their investigation is still underway.

Bloomberg, Feb. 19, 2014: Tepco Says New Leak of Radioactive Water Found at Fukushima Site […] About 100 metric tons (26,400 gallons) of water […] Beta radiation readings of 230 million becquerels per liter were taken in a water sample collected today near the H6 tank area […] About 300 tons of contaminated groundwater seep into the ocean each day […]

  • “The sample was collected today near the H6 tank area”… Why not sample the water from inside the tank it leaked out of?
  • 100 metric tons with 230,000,000 Bq/L = 23 Trillion Bq of Strontium-90 & other beta emitters, with half generally being Strontium-90 — about 11.5 trillion Bq of Sr-90
  • Tepco claims 10 trillion Bq of Sr-90 entered the sea from May 2011 to Aug. 2013

Kyodo News, Feb. 20, 2014: Roughly 100 tons of highly radioactive water leaked [Tepco] said Thursday [with] 230 million becquerels per liter of strontium and other beta ray-emitting radioactive substances. The utility believes the liquid has not flowed into the adjacent sea as there is no drainage nearby […]

Tepco “believes the liquid has not flowed into the adjacent sea”… yet.  A recent special on Japan TV about Fukushima’s contaminated water summed up the situation this way:

NHK (at 36:30 in): “What has become clear is that it’s very hard to control radioactive materials once they  get into the environment.”

  1. This may well be the death keel for all of us…….
    and the fools keep ignoring and denying it all.
    This is a huge number, no human will survive regardless of what corporate owned scientists say.
    We are facing our own demise, and the denial is unbelievable.
