Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) announced last Monday that they would pump over 10,000 tons of radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant. This action would allow the plant to keep water with higher levels of radioactivity.
The water that will be thrown into the sea has a radiation level of 100 times superior to the legal limit allowed.
Yukio Edano, the current Chief Cabinet Secretary of Japan, pointed out that there was not any other choice regarding the contaminated water. (AV)
