| Drones come back with footage of Fukushima destructions three years after earthquake!

Drones come back with footage of Fukushima destructions three years after earthquake ~ The Voice of Russia.

Three years has passed since the major disaster in Fukushima Daiichi and despite all the efforts of Japan government the big part of the east coast of Japan still remains desolated. The nuclear disaster in Fukushima still poses the continued risk of radiation to human workers, which led to the necessity to send drones to record the current situation on the coast.

Drones come back with footage of Fukushima destructions three years after earthquake

The drones have captured the level of devastation during their mission through the host towns of Japan. Abandoned houses, empty roads and lots of destruction could be seen on the videos and pictures published in the Internet.

One of the drones came back with an eight-minute video and with radioactive soil on the machine itself. The video shows the level of destruction that was caused during the Tohoku 9.0 earthquake in 2011.

The drone has captured an abandoned train station, the remains of the school building and a huge boat that is laying miles from the sea. The Cherry tree is blossoming right next to the destroyed buildings and personal possessions that people left when escaping.

The Fukushima nuclear disaster led to the failure at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant on 11 March 2011. The plant was hit by a tsunami, which was caused by a powerful earthquake.

Three out of six nuclear reactors went down and released the radioactive materials. According to the reports, the soil and water in the region is still filled with high level of radiation.

The population of the Tokioma was more than 15,800 residents. A total of 300,000 people evacuated the Fukushima area.

| IAEA wants diluted Fukushima toxic water discharged into sea!

IAEA Official: “What we are trying to say is consider” putting all the toxic Fukushima water in Pacific — Impact on human health must be monitored — Nearby countries all against it  ~ .

Juan Carlos Lentijo, head of IAEA’s mission to Fukushima Daiichi, Dec. 4, 2013: “Controlled discharge is a regular practice in all the nuclear facilities in the world. And what we are trying to say here is to consider this as one of the options to contribute to a good balance of risks and to stabilize the facility for the long term.”

Presentation by Lake Barrett, currently a Tepco adviser (2011)

Shunichi Tanaka, chairman of Japan’s Nuclear Regulation Authority, Dec. 4, 2013: “You cannot keep storing the water forever. We have to make choice comparing all risks involved.”

Xinhua, Dec. 4, 2013: Lentijo said that TEPCO should weigh the possible damaging effects of discharging toxic water against the total risks involved in the overall decommissioning work process. […] Tanaka highlighted the fact that while highly radioactive water could be decontaminated in around seven years, the amount of water containing tritium will keep rising, topping 700,000 tons in two years. […] nuclear experts have repeatedly pointed out that [tritium] is still a significant radiation hazard when inhaled, ingested via food or water, or absorbed through the skin. […] fisherman, industries and fisheries bodies in the Fukushima area and beyond in Japan’s northeast, have collectively baulked at the idea of releasing toxic water into the sea […] TEPCO will be duty-bound to submit assessments of the safety and environmental impact […]

NHK, Dec. 4, 2013: IAEA team leader Juan Carlos Lentijo […] said it is necessary and indispensable to assess the impact the tritium discharge might have on human health and the environment, and to get government approval as well as consent from concerned people.

Japan Times, Dec. 4, 2013: “Of course . . . public acceptance for this purpose is necessary,” said Lentijo, adding strict monitoring of the impact of the discharge would also be essential.

AFP, Dec. 4, 2013: [L]ocal fishermen, neighbouring countries and environmental groups all oppose the idea.
