Transcript of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear DIsaster

300,000 civilians were evacuated within a 20km radius within the plant.
Around 1600 died due to evacuation conditions.
The radiation from this event is currently spreading in East Asia, North America, Europe and other areas.
Hazardous air, water and land readings across many areas globally are many multiples too high.
Higher cancer levels are certain.
Fukushima Daiichi Radioactive Nuclear Disaster
Stakeholders Involved
The operators of the nuclear power plant was the TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Company).
They could have built a barrier wall to prevent the contaminated water to leak into the ocean, but they were too concerned about the costs.
The price of the barrier would have been around 1 billion dollars.
Things you should know
The clean-up is estimated to take 40 years
The actual cost for decontaminating the area exceeds $13 billion.
Something is causing fish along the west coast of Canada to bleed from their gills, bellies and eyeballs.
Experts have found very high levels of cesium in plankton living in the waters of between Hawaii and the west coast.
One test in California found that 15 out of 15 bluefin tuna were contaminated with radiation from Fukushima.
Some experts believe that we could see high levels of cancer along the west coast just from people eating contaminated fish.
According to a recent Planet Infowars report, the California coastline is being transformed into “a dead zone”.
The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster was an incident at the Fukushima 1 Nuclear Power Plant on March 11 2011.
The power plant received damages following the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. This resulted in "The Largest Nuclear Disaster".
The Tohoku earthquake/tsunami was the most powerful to hit Japan with a 9. magnitude

Environmental Impacts
The nuclear disaster has left the government with landscapes, forests, and waterways in the condition of impossible restoration.
The power plant leaks 300 tons of contaminated water every day.
The government sees that it is necessary to remove 100 million cubic acres of contaminated soil to prevent the spread of radioactivity through the absorption of plants and their pollen.
Kelp, zooplankton, and phytoplankton absorb the radioactive chemicals from the fallout. Being at the bottom of the food chain this leads to the consumption of predators which eventually contaminates the entire food chain.
Although they are stopping the spread, there is also the negative effect of destroying ecosystems in this process.
In order to cool down the broken reactors, the plant had to take the water from the ocean which resulted in the large amount of contamination flowing through the ocean currently.
