China ‘Horrified’ by Never-Ending Japanese Nuclear Leaks

NRA told Mari Yamaguchi of Associated Press today:  NRA “proposed Wednesday to define a fresh leakage of highly radioactive leak from one of the hundreds of storage tanks at Japan’s crippled atomic power plant this week, its worst leak yet from such a vessel.” Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) says:

“The leak is the fifth, and the worst, since last year involving tanks of the same design at the wrecked Fukushima Dai-ichi plant, raising concerns that contaminated water could begin leaking from storage tanks one after another.”

[Here comes another scream as I pull my hair out.  Where is Jael?  This is insane.  I must be reassigned.]  Mari also tells AP:  “During the meeting, officials also revealed that plant workers apparently have overlooked several signs of Japan-nuclear-inspectors leaks, suggesting that their twice-daily patrols were largely just a walk.

“They have not monitored water levels inside tanks, obviously missed a puddle forming at the bottom of the tank earlier, and kept open a valve on an anti-leakage barrier around the tanks.” [OK Now I’m livid, jumping up and down!]

Get Rev. Repriestly!  This is insane!  Want more? This goop was stored in rubber tanks:  “TEPCO says the tanks that have leaked use rubber seams that were intended to last about five years. TEPCO spokesman Masayuki Ono said it plans to build additional tanks with welded seams that are more watertight, but will still have to rely on ones with rubber seams.” Rubber seams for nuclear waste????

Mari ends her report:  “Contaminated water that TEPCO has been unable to contain continues to enter the Pacific Ocean at a rate of hundreds of tons per day. Much of that is ground water that has mixed with untreated radioactive water at the plant.”  Look out U.S. West Coast.  It’s coming your way.

Think I’m upset?  Listen to what Chinese officials tell Reuters News Service:  “China [is] shocked to hear contaminated water [is] still leaking from the plant, [we] urge Japan to provide information in a timely, thorough and accurate way. We hope the Japanese side can earnestly take effective steps to put an end to the negative impact of the after-effects of the Fukushima nuclear accident.”

Under the circumstances, that doesn’t seem to much to ask.  After all, that nuclear-filled water hits China first!  Isn’t there an International Nuclear Regulatory Agency?  Why aren’t they coming over here to help these ‘scientists’?

What about Japanese people? This stuff is in their water and air.  Please Rev. Repriestly, this calls for serious prayer.  That verse on plus size Christian sweatshirts promises: “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him (James 1: 5).” As this could eventually affect the whole world, please ask God for wisdom to solve it.
