FUKUSHIMA 2021: Japan rattled by powerful earthquake near site of destroyed nuclear reactor

Here we go again.

The radiation has never been fully contained, has it? They would not tell anyone if it is damaged again. At least no tusumi is predicted.

My former neurologist no longer eats seafood if any kind. He said the radiation from Fukushima reached out waters a few years ago. He recommended supplements instead.

I watched videos of the tsunami last week, no way a backwards country like America could pull together and rally during a crisis like the tsunami the Japanese endured.

They had 15 minutes to reach higher ground.

Yes, America is not capable of sending homeless men and men indebted to the yakuza into a ravaged area to do lethal recovery work. Nor are we capable of discriminating against refugees from one region of our country and refusing them shelter or aid because we perceive them to be tainted. Those Japanese have everything figured out! If only we could be as efficient as them.

R9, not “tainted” — undesirable. It’s not a hard concept.

When a country functions well, it listens to its citizens and executes the policies the people say they want. The Japanese want to remain as homogenous a country as possible. I’m fine with their choice.

I’m not neocolonial Western capital or media.

by Anonymousreply 1902/13/2021

[R9], not “tainted” — undesirable. It’s not a hard concept.

My apologies. The "undesirable" people of Fukushima were not called "tainted." They were called "contaminated." How charming you are ok with that. The Japanese did the same thing in the 50s and 60s against Hiroshima natives. It is their choice to shun people with certain addresses. How admirable.

Or perhaps you are confusing their policy against mass immigration with their treatment of their own citizens?

R8- Thank you. I love seafood, especially salmon, but I rarely buy it because of this. Also because I do not trust the FDA since, well you know. The last four years. Shhhh! Don't say it's name, lol. The pollution if our oceans is another factor. But I miss seafood!

the statistically likelihood this happened naturally is low. They are probably fracking, pumping some shit into the ground, or something crazy and dangerous? Find out what the fuck they are doing there a BAN IT.

These governments HATE their own people. How many deaths are they continue to cause of people and animals? It's sick. They are going to have to help all these people (and animals) now, and they are already dealing with the Pandemic.

Much Love to the Japanese people. They have such a rich and beautiful culture too.

"Early Sunday morning, Tepco said it had found that water in some of the pools that store spent nuclear fuel rods had splashed onto the pool decks inside the reactors at both the Dai-ichi plant where the meltdowns occurred in 2011, and at the Dai-ni plant nearby. But Tepco said no water had leaked outside the reactors.

Tepco also reported that there had been some small leaks from a tank filled with contaminated water stored on the Dai-ichi site but that the leak had been contained within a small area"

I just don’t think eating fish is a wise move anymore for anybody. Especially if it comes from the pacific. Leave what’s there for the large mammals and fish who need it.

by Anonymousreply 4402/14/2021

I avoid pacific ocean fish as I believe it is so much more polluted than they are letting on. They need to keep making money even if people glow in the dark. Like they have to hold the Olympics in Tokyo or it will hurt their 'brand' and all the money invested will go down the shitter. This is supposed to matter? The Olympic committee obviously has such integrity they can't say no to their own money making interests.

R41, the contaminants from the Japanese leak have been found in Alaska. Sad, because it used to be the best source of fresh uncontaminated seafood in the US.

Sometimes, I wonder if these are corrections. I read last year that Tepco put in a request to release treated coolant waste. The earthquake will hopefully return focus to that 1,000 year problem.

Also, just before the quake, an Olympic chair dropped a sexist turd into the mix and it looks like the August Olympics may not happen.

I'm betting those Olympics are happening no matter if only a fraction of the world's athletes attend and there are only robots in the stands.

No way in hell is Japan canceling twice with all that money spent on infrastructure and letting China be the next Olympic host (Winter 2022).
