article imageOp-Ed: Fukushima nuclear plant leaks pollute Pacific Ocean

Fukushima nuclear plant water leaks continue to contaminate most of the Pacific Ocean. The long-term impact of the radiation leak on Japan and its neighboring countries will continue for many years. Are Japanese leaders covering up this disaster?
A few years after the Fukushima tragedy Japan fails to admit to the seriousness of the disaster, but it is clear the drastic environmental implications will follow. The Japanese authorities have been covering up the disaster because they do not want to embarrass themselves and the global nuclear industry and they are trying to open up another nuclear plant in Japan. This disaster could contaminate the entire Pacific Ocean. It is extremely serious because an estimated 300 tons of contaminated water continues to spill daily into the ocean. It will probably take 40 years to clean-up the contaminated area, according to the extinction protocol.
While tons of polluted water flow daily into the Pacific, from the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant, Japan’s government workers attempt to seal the leak, according to RT news. However, their efforts appear to be too little and too late because this toxic Fukushima fallout threatens many people’s livelihoods, according to the Guardian.
Analysis
This disaster is more dangerous than previously thought. Both the US and Japanese governments knew from day one the magnitude of the disaster and did not tell the American public living in the west-coast regions of the US. There appears to be no way to stop this catastrophe when 300 tons of radioactive water is being pumped into the Pacific Ocean daily. Today sections of Japan are now radioactive and uninhabitable. In the future portions of the west coast region of America will be radioactive and uninhabitable for generations.
