Japan utility plans to dump radioactive Fukushima water into Pacific – people aren’t happpy

People aren’t happy with Tokyo Electro Power Co. chairman Takashi Kawamura. Takashi Kawamura has chosen to dump radioactive tritium into the water.
Why would he dump radioactive tritium into the water? According to a Uk newspaper: “Technology has so far been unable to remove tritium from the water, and TEPCO’s solution is to pour the radioactive liquid into the ocean, where, according to the utility’s officials, it would be quickly diluted, The Telegraph reported Friday.” The UPI gives us some numbers.
“About 770,000 tons of radioactive water is stored in 580 tanks in Fukushima” (UPI, 2017.)
