Tepco Dumps 11,500 Tons of Radioactive Water Into the Pacific

Kyodo news reports:

Tokyo Electric Power Co. on Monday took the unprecedented measure of dumping 10,000 tons of low-level radioactive water in the Pacific Ocean from a facility at its crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex to make room for the storage of more highly contaminated water, which is hampering restoration work at the plant.


Nishiyama also said that it had become necessary to release 1,500 tons of groundwater, also containing radioactive materials, found near the Nos. 5 and 6 reactor turbine buildings out of concern that the water could drown safety-related equipment.

Of course, the government said there was "no major health risk", even though:

The level of radioactive substances in the water is up to 500 times the legal limit permitted for release in the environment.

  1. Maybe in a little while we will all start to believe all that the Hebrew prophets have written.
    The prophet Hosheyah ( Hosea ) warned us in chapter 4: verse 3 Therefore shall the land mourn and every one that dwells in it will languish, with the beast of the field. and with the fowls of heaven yes, the fish of the sea also shall be taken away.
    This will kill many in a very slow death.
    By time it takes hold of you, you too will start to believe the Scriptures.

    There is hope it only comes from the same Person that inspired these Hebrew prophets to write and warn us of what our sin and greed would bring on the earth we live on.

    Remember the Hebrew messiah said in Luke 24:25 we are fools if we don't believe ALL that the prophets have spoken.

    Come see how our religions have caused these curses to come on us.


    May Father Yahweh bless your understanding
