The Japanese government has formally decided to release one million tons of nuclear wastewater into the sea

Japanese media analysis said that the Japanese government decided to discharge nuclear wastewater, the reason may be that the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster storage tanks are about to reach the maximum capacity.

After the nuclear water waste is discharged, it will take only 57 days for the radioactive material to spread halfway across the Pacific Ocean.

It is not only a domestic issue in Japan but also an international issue that affects the global Marine ecology and environmental security.

Tepco says that most of the radioactive material can be removed by a sophisticated filtration process and that before the wastewater is released into the sea, it will undergo a secondary treatment that will dilute the concentration of tritium to one-fortieth of the Japanese national standard.

A Tepco official even claimed in an interview that the nuclear wastewater could be drunk as much as 2 liters a day without causing any harm to health.

It would be irresponsible and short-sighted to shift the consequences of their own negligence onto the ocean. •It would be irresponsible to other countries. •In an era that calls for sustainable development, the Japanese government, and TEPCO’s approach does not consider the survival and development of future generations of mankind.

Do you agree to Japan‘s release of nuclear wastewater? If nuclear water waste is not discharged into the sea, what alternative is there?
