TEPCO finally admitted today (Japan time) that the situation at Fukushima is bleak and they have no idea how to contain and stop what is happening there.
Japan’s tsunami-crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant is facing yet another emergency as highly radioactive groundwater appears to have risen above an underground barrier meant to contain it.The head of the country’s Nuclear Regulatory Authority task force Shinji Kinjo told Reuters on Monday that the leak was an emergency, but he was worried the plant’s operator, TEPCO, had no sense of how to deal with it.He went on to say the highly radioactive groundwater is likely seeping into the sea.In a recent news conference, TEPCO General manager Masayuki Ono said the situation was bleak.
“We understand that this discharge is beyond our control and we do not think the current situation is good.”
They had lied in the beginning about the situation and I believe they are only partly giving what the whole situation is.
