Tim Deere-Jones on the Fukushima Daiichi Radioactive Water Discharge into the Ocean.

The archive video of the conference is now on air.

The archive video of the zoom conference on 5 November 2022 given by Tim Deere-Jones on the issues of discharging Fukushima Daiichi radioactive water into the ocean, and of seabed dredging — a comparison between Fukushima Daiichi and Hinkley Point, is now available.

With English/Japanese interpretation.

Radioactive materials released in large quantities on the days following the beginning of the TEPCO Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station accident flew over the Pacific Ocean on the prevailing westerly winds, falling and depositing on the ocean floor.

Radioactive fallout on land also flowed into the sea washed by rain and carried by rivers. Uncontrolled inflow of contaminated water from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant site into the ocean has also increased the contamination of the seabed.

Such radioactive materials from the accident can be transferred from sea to land by the wind and contaminate the environment, including pastures and crops.

Tim Deere-Jones points out the risks of the wide rediffusion of the contamination mainly towards the south, situated downstream of the ocean current, by the release of the treated radio-contaminated water. This discharge of radioactive water is planned for over a period of 10 years.  Further contamination can also be caused by the construction work of the discharge facilities.
