[Real-time news/comprehensive report]The Japanese government decided today (13th) to discharge the Fukushima nuclear waste water into the ocean, which triggered heated discussions from all walks of life. The United States expressed support for this, while China criticized Japan for being “extremely irresponsible.” Recently, a number of foreign media quoted past research by the German Kilhelmholtz Center for Marine Research (GEOMAR), stating that the nuclear waste water stored in the Fukushima nuclear power plant was discharged into the ocean, and the residual radioactive material may pollute the Pacific in just 57 days. It will cause adverse effects on the fishery and even the human body.

According to comprehensive foreign media reports, Japan’s massive earthquake on March 11, 2011 triggered the Fukushima nuclear disaster, and the nuclear waste water produced in the follow-up process has been stored for more than 10 years. The Japanese government held a cabinet meeting this morning to formally finalize the guidelines for the dilution and discharge of nuclear wastewater from the Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant into the sea. The U.S. State Department subsequently expressed support for Japan’s decision, referring to Japan’s discharge of nuclear waste water in compliance with internationally recognized nuclear safety standards.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China expressed serious concern about this and criticized Japan’s unilateral decision to dispose of nuclear waste water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident in a way that is extremely irresponsible. China calls on Japan to re-examine the issue of nuclear waste water disposal at the Fukushima nuclear power plant and fully consult with interested countries and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Many voices came out to express opposition to Japan’s decision to discharge nuclear wastewater into the sea. A large number of Japanese netizens angrily criticized the government for “ignoring public opinion”; Fukushima fishermen also exploded, saying that after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, they have been working to restore the local fishery image for 10 years. , But was hit again by the decision of the Japanese government, “The efforts of the past 10 years are all in vain!”

Recently, many media have quoted GEOMAR’s research report released on July 9, 2012, which is 16 months after the Fukushima nuclear disaster. The agency used computers to simulate the discharge of nuclear waste water in Japan, bluntly saying that Japan’s coastal waters, especially near Fukushima, will bear the brunt, and then the radioactive substances contained in the sewage may spread to most of the Pacific within 57 days and within 7 months. Drifting to the waters of South Korea’s Jeju Island, covering the entire East China Sea (Sea of ​​Japan) within 340 days, the United States, Canada and other countries on the other side of the Pacific will also be affected in 3 years, and the global waters will have the chance to be polluted in 10 years.

Although the complete report of this research is no longer available, many people or organizations on Twitter have reposted GEOMAR’s research content and hypothetical images of the diffusion path of nuclear waste water after discharge, causing discussion.
