Tokyo Electric Puts Off Tainted Groundwater Removal at Fukushima Plant
Nov 28 Jiji Press
Tokyo Electric said Thursday that a shortage of water storage tanks has forced it to postpone removal of contaminated groundwater at its crippled Fukushima Plant.
The postponement would allow radioactive groundwater to continue to flow beyond soil hardened with chemicals between the No. 2 and No. 3 reactors and into the sea.
Early this month, 6,000 becquerels per liter of strontium 90 were detected in groundwater in an observation well between the two reactors, far exceeding the standard for water to be released into the sea.

In The US, very high readings from rain were measured in Arkansas on Nov. 22. This is near the record high for this observer. This looks to be at least 18 times background. (Radiation in rain typically never exceeds 2-3 times background in high radon areas.)

Radiation in American air and rain continues to rise.

A new record of all-beta radiation was measured on Nov. 25 at Fukushima:

The 26th, Tokyo Electric announced from observation wells located on the sea side of the 1-4 Unit Fukushima, radioactive materials that emit beta radiation, such as strontium-90 has been 910,000 becquerels detected per liter. Was taken in the 25th, I went up from 750,000 becquerels of collecting the 21st. In the well of the primary sea side, it was a record high.

Yeah, they would naturally do it with all the nuclear disasters they have and wrong decisions by idiotic politicians.

It looks like the whole world is moving towards fascism. Consequently, there would probably be an upheaval followed by a major war, like history repeats itself. Human kind is still a stupid creature, despite all the advances.

They left out the fifth area: Fukushima.

These are the same clowns that keep allowing the bungling TEPCO to continue....looks like they have learned well from the US example that say "Peoples rights, we don't need no stinking, give us your money"!
