Fukushima will dump 770,000 tons of deadly nuclear waste into the ocean, which experts have warned will cause “apocalyptic” numbers of people to die.

According to Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO) chairman, Takashi Kawamura, the decision has already been made to put the lives of millions of fish, humans and animals at risk by dumping the radioactive material from the Fukushima plant into the Pacific ocean – despite strong opposition from fisherman.

Rt.com reports: “I’m very sorry that Tepco has been prolonging making a decision,” the new chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (TEPCO) Takashi Kawamura told reporters on Thursday, reported Reuters. “We could have decided much earlier, and that is Tepco’s responsibility.”

The plan still requires the approval of the Japanese government before TEPCO can proceed.

Some 770,000 tons (metric) of tritium-containing water is currently stored in 580 tanks at the plant, reported the Japan Times. Toxic water at the plant is currently being treated through a processing system that can remove 62 different types of radioactive material, except tritium.

The local fishermen cooperative has hit out at the plan, saying it had not been discussed with local residents.

“Releasing (tritium) into the sea will create a new wave of unfounded rumors, making our efforts all for naught,” Kanji Tachiya, head of a local fishermen cooperative, told the Japan Times.
