MinamisomaAccording to Greenpeace as recently as 25 February, TEPCO admitted that highly radioactive water – 50 to 70 times more radioactive than the already high radioactivity levels previously seen onsite – had been leaking into the ocean for nearly a year. TEPCO chose not to disclose the leak until now. Approximately 120,000 nuclear refugees are still living in temporary housing, their lives left in limbo: not enough compensation to establish a life somewhere else, and either not able to, or choosing not to return to their former homes. Recently the Fukushima governor issued five conditions for accepting radioactive debris at a planned interim storage facility, including a law stipulating that the waste will be moved outside the prefecture within 30 years.

In the face of the continuing disaster, even Japanese Prime Minister Abe appears to be revising his position of 2013 that the situation at Fukushima is under control. The INES 7 nuclear accident on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) nuclear event scale 3, which led to the melt down of three General Electric Mark 1 Boiling Water Reactors (BWRs) at Fukushima Daiichi has created a nuclear disaster unique in the history of nuclear power. Plant owner, Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), and sub-contracting companies have used tens of thousands of workers during the past four years, in an attempt to bring the site under some form of control, reduce the risks of further accidents and to lower radioactive releases into the environment, including the Pacific Ocean. Despite the enormous efforts of these workers significant contamination continues to be released from the site and the threats of further accident remain high ….>>
