Water samples taken at an underground passage below the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant contain alarming levels of radiation which are comparable to those taken immediately after the catastrophe.

When Chernobyl happened thousands of Russians sacrificed there lives to save others. Why are the Japanese not doing the same? Do they intend to make all the world irradiated? It is time for the US or Russia to take control of japan and stop this disaster before it destroys our only planet. We have nowhere else to go.
why don't they just take the trench water and dump it into the ocean where it will quickly be diluted into nothing. Will scare the enviroterrorists but would safely and cheaply deal with this nuisance?
It will not dilute into nothing miss,Radiation does not go away for thousands of years and exposure to any amount is hazardous . Even small amounts build up in animal tissue.It's worse much much worse than me peeing in your glass of water.
earthquake country built a reactor without a safety of earthquake
Above comments are nonsense - where did you get 1000 mSV from the article? There was never 1000 mSV
@8:34 Incorrect. Plant made by USA corp, full of unstable MOX. That MOX junk is also made in USA.
Does that risk go up exponentially ? The quote of 1000 millisieverts equals 5.5% chance of cancer ?
This plant blew up due to a unforseen event. Russia nuke plant just blew up because of incompentancy
Western journalism, in fact Western propaganda wants us to believe that radiation is only bad if it comes from places like Chernobyl.
Russia has a huge legacy of Soviet era nuclear reactors. This is a view of the future in Russia.
1000 millisieverts carries with it a 5.5% chance of eventually developing cancer.
A millisievert is a measure of derived dossage absorbed by the average body. Not an exact science.
