Japan nuclear: Radiation halts water clean-up



Operators of Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant have suspended an operation to clean contaminated water hours after it began due to a rapid rise in radiation.

Some 110,000 tonnes of water have built up during efforts to cool reactors hit by the 11 March earthquake and tsunami.

The contaminated water, enough to fill 40 Olympic-sized swimming pools, has been at risk of spilling into the sea.

The disaster caused meltdown at three of the reactors, and radiation leaks.

It was the world's worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl in Ukraine in 1986.

The powerful earthquake and the tsunami it generated are now known to have killed more than 15,280 people, while nearly 8,500 remain unaccounted for.

Radiation in spots of Tokyo is 3.5 times the legal limit. The only solution to the problem is to raise the legal limit and have the children pet cute little happy Panda bears.

Ugh. Getting worse and worse. Maybe slowly, but where are the idiots who were riding people like me about saying it was bad? We were paranoid idiots, and now we are correct. Funny how that goes.

Good luck Japan. Dont become Japobyl. :/

Do you know how low the legal limit is? It is incredibly low, so 3x say .0001 is only .0003 and therefore not actually a harmful amount. I swear to god I must have said this 20 times during the event, people need to stop fear mongering and learn something about radiation, yes it is bad for you but the legal limits are set so low that there is no harmful effect, 3x that level may give .001% of the population a higher risk of cancer.

That is a lot of clicks per minute
post #2760 of 2836
Every one is saying "high radiation levels" yet nobody has the info on the clicks per
Minute...
