Title: Scientist fears radiation still leaking at Fukushima nuclear plant
Date: November 19, 2012
Ken Buesseler, Sr. Scientist in Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute: “There has to be a source. And they’re cooling those reactors quite extensively, some of that water’s getting back into the ocean, either actively being pumped out after some decontamination or through leaks in the buildings, they’re not able to contain all of the water that they use to cool.”
But plant operator Tepco denies the claim and the Japanese ministry responsible for radiation sampling across Japan said they are excluding that possibility from their inquiries at the moment.
