Majia Nadesan comments: This charade has gone on long enough.
There really needs to be an international response to this disaster.
Fukushima Diary is reporting a giant surge in tritium detections
2,300,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium from seawater, Tepco “Higher than the past highest reading of 2 days before”
how long will this insanity be allowed to continue?
Did you see the recent interview with a former plant worker?
Stunning Story from a Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Worker By OSHIDORI MAKO
Yesterday’s images have me quite worried. The same area is glowing less intensely today, as visible in both cams.

Fukushima Diary comments:
Every time Tepco collects seawater sample, they measure the highest Tritium level.
On 7/6/2013, Tepco announced they measured 2,300,000 Bq/m3 of Tritium from seawater and admitted it was even higher than the past highest reading that they detected 2 days before.
The sampling date was 7/3/2013. Sampling location was north side of reactor1~4 water intake. Before this sampling, 2,200,000 Bq/m3 was the highest reading from the same location. The sampling date was 7/1/2013.
(cf, Tritium density in seawater spiked triple times higher in 5 days, “2,200,000 Bq/m3″ [URL])
Having measured extremely high level of Tritium from groundwater, Tepco is stating they carefully watch Tritium level in seawater.
The increasing contamination in seawater might suggest Tritium is already flowing into the sea.
Because Tepco excludes Strontium-90 from nuclides to analyze, we cannot know if Strontium-90 is also leaking to the sea.
