Well imagine with Fukushima, it is underground, there are leaks happening underground. They really need to seal off underground, but they haven’t done it, and so there are leaks into the ocean. […] There’s still so much groundwater underneath, and we’ve been addressing the fact that it’s finally going to get to the contamination, and it has. So right now, there’s — above ground — a hole in the reactor, a hole in the containment, and trying to cool it, but still it leaks. They are pumping up the water there, but underground is this radiation spreading. The levels going into the ocean — about 300 tons of contaminated water is going in right now — is nearly as high levels as right after the Fukushima accident. But the concern is that the levels are going up and underground the contamination seems to be spreading. We don’t know what the sources are; it’s like a time bomb. […] Full broadcast here
