Japan's Billion-Dollar Plan To Store Its Contaminated Fukushima Dirt15

As the immediate aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster has passed, Japan is faced with another conundrum: Where to store thousands of tons of radioactive soil that have been harvested from around the region. This week, officials unveiled a $US970 million plan to build a massive storage facility to house the stuff.


Tepco Removes First Fukushima Fuel Rods, Finally Gets Something Right

TEPCO workers successfully removed the first fuel rods from the damaged reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant and transferred them into portable casks on Monday. Those who have been following the follies of the power company should be pleased that a meltdown did not occur.


Fukushima Workers Accidentally Douse Themselves In Toxic Water

In case you weren’t already concerned enough about the wacky (re: highly dangerous) antics going over at the Fukushima power plant, maybe this will do the trick. Six workers attempting to clean up the increasingly unruly mess have accidentally doused themselves with highly radioactive water.


Spacey Fukushima Worker Pushes Wrong Button, Almost Causes Meltdown

It’s another week and another chance for TEPCO to embarrass itself at the beleaguered Fukushima power plant. Sometime on Monday morning, the cooling pump for the reactors shut down suddenly. It must’ve been some mechanical failure or some freak accident, right? Nah. Some worker just pushed the off button by mistake, according to the Nuclear Regulation Authority.


Fukushima Leaks Radioactive Water Into The Pacific Ocean (Again)

Officials from the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) have announced that the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has been leaking radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean again.


TEPCO Just Spilled Tonnes Of Radioactive Water Into Fukushima's Soil

The operator of Japan’s infamously crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant recently attempted to move some radioactive water from one tank to another. In the process, it spilled four tonnes of deadly sludge.


Japan's Government Will Bankroll A Giant Ice Wall At Fukushima

After weeks of deliberation, the Japanese government has finally intervened in the increasingly desperate situation at Fukushima. On Tuesday, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced a $US470 million plan to contain the leaking radioactive water at the nuclear power plant by building a giant wall of ice underground. And guess who’s going to pay for it (hint: not TEPCO).


Fukushima's Radioactive Water Problem Just Gets Worse And Worse

The clean up crew at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant just can’t catch a break. Just a day after Japan’s nuclear watchdog raised the severity of a recent water leakage incident from a one to a three on the international scale, experts are stepping forward to say that the problem is actually much worse.


Fukushima's Radioactive Puddles Are More Serious Than Anticipated

Japan’s nuclear agency wants to raise the severity level of the new radioactive water leak at the Fukushima. The problem is more serious than initially expected.


Fukushima Now Surrounded By Extremely Radioactive Puddles

A water tank at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan apparently sprung a leak recently. The latest reports from the northern prefecture say that puddles have collected all around the plant, and the implication is clear. Fukushima has a whole new radioactive water problem.
