Prime Minister Abe sees Fukushima clean-up as urgent government problem

Abe,-Shinzo-nuke-1Japan’s leader weighs into nuclear clean-up debacle (includes video)  The Age, August 7, 2013 – Japan’s prime minister says the government will get more involved in cleaning up the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, as he described as “urgent” a battle to stop radioactive water from leaking into the ocean.

The government’s more prominent role comes as critics slam plant operator Tokyo Electric Power and its handling of the more than two-year-old atomic crisis, the worst nuclear accident in a generation.

The embattled power company, kept afloat by a government bail-out, last month admitted for the first time that radioactive groundwater had been leaking outside the plant, confirming long-held suspicions of ocean contamination from its shattered reactors.  http://www.theage.com.au/world/japans-leader-weighs-into-nuclear-cleanup-debacle-20130807-2rgwx.html#ixzz2bPP2QbmG
