Japan to release radioactive water into the ocean and claims sorry

The Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan was massively hit by the tsunami in 2011. The radioactive material was leaked out from the plant into the atmosphere. The major crisis now regarding the situation is to remove the contents of nuclear waste, fuel rods, and over one million tons of radioactive water. As the plant is running out of space to store all this radioactive water, the Japanese government has put forward several plans to release the radioactive water into the Pacific ocean after it attains filtration.

Debate is still going among the officials about the radioactive elements such as Tritium that persists even after the cleaning process. These elements are hazardous to both humans as well as animal health as they can potentially damage the DNA.

The government is still in a dilemma as there is some strong opposition from the people and the fisheries cooperatives owing to the release of water. The government is yet to decide on making progress. They have planned to bring down the tritium level to just 2.5% of the maximum concentration, which is allowed by the National Standards. The local people are still in a disgusting state of mind in allowing the government to proceed with their plan.
