At the Fukushima Daiichi, the volume of contaminated water amounts to
one million tons contained in 1000 tanks. On July13,the new Chairman of
TEPCO announced in an interview that the massive radioactive
contaminated water containing unremovable tritium would be released
into the sea, as recommended by the Nuclear Regulatory Authority. It is
well known that tritium is a deadly poison. 2 milligram of it is lethal.
The future of the Pacific Ocean is threatened. The reaction of the international community can easily be foreseen.
Recent publications containing anti-Tokyo Olympic Games assertions are
noteworthy. Mr.Takao Saito, renowned journalist, published last month a
book entitled “How to educate the people” in which he reviews all the
violations of the initial official commitments of the Tokyo Olympic
Games. Mr.Makoto Sadaka, famous critic, has recently published an
article in which he criticizes Dentsu as playing a central role in
suspected corruption cases regarding nuclear reactors and the Tokyo
Fukushima and the Tokyo Olympic Games are closely related. The former
helps to play down the consequences of the latter, preventing Japan
from consecrateing maximum efforts to bring Fukushima under control. It
is simply scandelous to organize Olympic baseball and football games in
Fukushima without reassuring its safety as required by civil society.
The IOC is increasingly criticized for this.
The Olympic Games seems to stand at crossroads. Rome, Boston Hamburg
and Bulgaria have withdrawn candidature for the 2024Olympic Games.
Paris and Los Angeles are retained for 2024 and 2028.In addition to
enormous financial burden, immigrants and terrorism remain serious
discouraging problems for the two cities.
The large scale cyber attack that took place in Europe on June 27
damaged the automatic radiation surveillance system of Chernobyl
nuclear reactors in Ukraine. The world is thus seriously warned against
the vulnerability of nuclear reactors.
The world is yet to learn the destructive power of nuclear energy in
all directions(states,companies,organizations, individuals).The pitiful
downfall of TOSHIBA undeniably symbolizes the beginning of the end of
the peaceful use of nuclear energy. The mainstream of the world still
permits and promotes the existence of more than 440 nuclear reactors,
now considered as the most serious threat to security.
This mainstream undeniably needs a change.
It is the law of history.
