The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster: Newest Update - TEPCO "Losing Faith" In Leaking Fukushima Tanks...But Has No Place To Put The Radioactive Water!

It has been a while since I last put up any updates on the still dangerous situation with the failed nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station in Japan, and I figured that there was no time like the present...

I have watched the reports over the last week about the leaking nuclear waste storage facility pits at Fukushima with about as much disgust as everyone else.... It is troubling that now over 2 years since that horrific disaster, we are watching as Tokyo Electric Power Corporation (TEPCO) continue to struggle in almost vain attempts to contain the situation, and prevent any more radioactive contamination to the environment... But according to this new article from the Voice of America website, at www.voanews.com, it seems that TEPCO is now losing faith in the leaking Fukushima radioactive waste storage pits... And has had to admit that they are running out of places to put the highly radioactive waste water!   First, here is that article for everyone to view for themselves, and of course I have my own thoughts and comments to follow:

TEPCO 'Losing Faith' in Leaking Fukushima Water Pits

FILE - An aerial view shows Tokyo Electric Power Co.'s (TEPCO) tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima Prefecture, March 11, 2013.


NTS Notes:  This is shocking news indeed, and shows that in spite of the media blackout, reports still leak through that show that the situation at Fukushima is still far from being under any sense of control....

Thousands of tons of highly radioactive water and no place to put it.... What is also missing is the fact that this situation will continue to magnify because TEPCO has had no choice but to continue to pour water over the failed reactor cores to  prevent any explosions or further release of radioactive particles into the environment!   What that means is that this waste water situation with leaking pits will only get progressively worse for years to come....

I am again truly dismayed by the nations of this planet rushing for war against innocent nations, instead of putting in a combined effort to actually contain and then fix this still dangerous situation at Fukushima.  

Again, it is up to everyone to take this information and pass it around for everyone to see for themselves that we still face serious danger from this horrific situation and that will continue until governments get off their collective butts and actually do something about it!

More to come
