water radiation soars at fukushima ahead of risky rod removal

remember the fukushima daiichi nuclear disaster? maybe you knew that every day 400 tons of radioactive groundwater flows into the pacific ocean ( but, hey, on a global scale it’s releasing just a fraction of the radioactive material released during h-bomb testing in the 1960 so what, me-worry? ). and now the water radiation is soaring as workers prepare to remove fuel rods from one of the worst-hit reactors which japan’s former ambassador to switzerland is warning “…[if] the worst occurs, a total withdrawal [from the site] will be imposed, which means this can be considered as the beginning of the ultimate catastrophe of the world and the planet.”
