The US State Department called Japan's decision to drain water from the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean as "weighted"

US State Department spokesman Ned Price made an amazing statement. This statement concerns the situation at the Japanese emergency nuclear power plant "Fukushima". The accident at this nuclear power plant happened about 10 years ago - in March 2011. Then the cause of the accident was a tsunami, and the consequences in Japan are still evident today. One of them is the overflow of storage tanks for radioactive waste and water. In a number of cases, the tanks leaked due to corrosion from the effects of sea water, and their contents began to flow into the ocean, causing a sharp increase in the radiation background in the area of ​​the NPP location.


In the end, the Japanese authorities decided to discharge water from the Fukushima-1 nuclear power plant into the ocean. This has already raised a lot of questions among environmentalists and experts in the field of nuclear energy. However, the US State Department considers the decision of the Japanese authorities "balanced".

Ned Price stated that “this is a very difficult situation that is unique,” ​​and added:

In such a situation, Japan weighed the different options and the consequences of each of them. We think she did everything in a transparent manner and probably took the best approach in terms of nuclear safety standards.

By and large, this statement looks like the height of cynicism. First, the term "likely" is used. Secondly, since when has the discharge of "excess" water, including radioactive, from a nuclear power plant directly into the ocean has become the standard of nuclear safety?

For obvious reasons, this will create additional risks for the ecosystem of both Japan itself and the adjacent waters and territories. But for the US State Department, that doesn't seem to matter. The decision, as stated, is "balanced".

      Maybe we will remove the soil from all the places of our nuclear accidents and off California in the sea with a "sensible decision" and pour it out. They don't care, I understand. So we pour out transparently, without hiding so that everyone can see

      According to the NOAA map, the current from Fukushima carries contaminated waters to the Hawaiian Islands and the west coast of the United States. And taking into account that the Japanese dumped dirty waters, up to this point on a quiet one. This is happening over there ...

          The head of the State Department, a Kiev Jew, Antosha Blinkin, lives on the East Coast of the United States, so it is absolutely acceptable for him to drain radiation from Japan towards the Hawaiian Islands and the West Coast of the United States. bully

          PS It is time for us to block the Kuril straits with membrane dams, through which part of the radioactively contaminated waters of the Kuroshio Current enters the Sea of ​​Okhotsk.

          The Japanese are filthy, but compared to what they have poured in 10 years, this million tons of weather will not make it. Although all the most delicious remains on the island, because What kind of filters are present. And we were not lucky to have the Pacific Ocean at Chernobyl.

    And to agree on a possible resolution of the problem with the IAEA and ALWAYS with the participation of the Russian delegation (because taking into account many years of experience, only the Russian side can give correct recommendations for eliminating the consequences of the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant) and by joint efforts of the entire world community to prevent further pollution from the Fukushima nuclear power plant of the entire of the world's oceans (ALL WITHOUT EXCEPTION love to eat seafood). If a mighty, high-tech, nuclear power Japan is unable to cope with the consequences, they may forget about the crown or some kind of ambition. Otherwise, first of all, impose on the firm on the designer and on the Japanese side (for a very "balanced" decision, sort of like a kilo of cherries sold in Odessa with a twisted kentar) and collect, ask, impose penalties (to put it mildly).

      a Japanese worker has contracted radiation sickness and is dying. During the work, he was in a technological tunnel under the station and water with radioactive elements got into his boots.

      Water! Into your boots! Why didn't he get there in the slates and tricuska?
      This is approximately how the Japanese eliminated the consequences at the first stage.
      At that time I was sitting at a specialized forum of atomic scientists, there were many people directly connected with the construction and operation of plants, they were quietly from the Japanese.

    Is it weak to drive water through a reverse osmosis system? I understand that this is not cheap, but also not much more expensive than building large tanks. And so at least relatively clean water can be obtained at the outlet before being discharged into the ocean. All the same, after all, they will begin to merge.

    The US State Department called Japan's decision to drain water from the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean as "weighted"


    Well, if the Americans do not mind, then the Japanese have to drive a few bulk tankers, fill them with radiation water and drain it into the ocean off the coast of the United States. After all, if the Americans approved, then they will not resist.
