Fukushima is now the radioactive Deepwater Horizon of the Pacific

With its massive, ongoing release of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean, Fukushima has become the Deepwater Horizon of the Pacific. As finally admitted by Japanese authorities, Fukushima is releasing massive quantities of radioactive material into the ocean on an ongoing basis.
This highly contaminated water (7.5 million times) being released today is just the beginning: At least 200 tons of water are being poured onto Reactor No 2 every day, and that extremely radioactive water is, of course, ultimately getting dumped directly into the ocean.
If you do the math, that’s 48,000 gallons of highly radioactive water being flushed into the Pacific Ocean each and every day.
Remember the video of the dark, cloudy oil gushing out of the hole in the ocean floor underneath BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling rig? Now imagine an invisible cloud that’s far more deadly because it’s radioactive! That’s essentially what we have now with Fukushima.
