A prominent Australian physician, diplomat of the American Board of Pediatrics, and activist, Dr. Helen Caldicott, discussed the truth about Fukushima Daichi:
The reactor complex was built adjacent to a mountain range and millions of gallons of water emanate from the mountains daily beneath the reactor complex, causing some of the earth below the reactor buildings to partially liquefy. As the water flows beneath the damaged reactors, it immerses the three molten cores and becomes extremely radioactive as it continues its journey into the adjacent Pacific Ocean....Vast areas of Japan are now contaminated, including some areas of Tokyo, which are so radioactive that roadside soil measuring 7,000 becquerels per kilo would qualify to be buried in a radioactive waste facility in the U.S...Bottom line, these reactors will never be cleaned up nor decommissioned because such a task is not humanly possible.
About 90,000 more tons of contaminated cooling water are held in above ground storage tanks and in the reactor buildings' basements. All of this contaminated storage is at risk from seismic activity in the region. Despite all of these huge difficulties Japan's minister of economy is officially optimistic that Fukushima can be decommissioned and rebuilt by, "mobilizing all of Japan's technical ability." Is not technological hubris the reason Fukushima happened in the first place?
