WE’VE BEEN MONITORING THE PLANS TO RELEASE TREATED — RADIOACTIVE WATER FROM THE FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR POWER PLANT IN JAPAN.
NOW — WE’RE LEARNING NOT ALL EXPERTS WHO APPROVED THE PLANS — MAY HAVE BEEN ENTIRELY ON BOARD.
THE U-N’S NUCLEAR WATCHDOG RELEASED A REPORT THIS WEEK GREENLIGHTING THE PLANS.
ON FRIDAY — THE HEAD OF THE WATCHDOG SAID ONE OR TWO OF THE EXPERTS BEHIND THE REPORT MAY HAVE HAD CONCERNS ABOUT RELEASING THE WATER.
THIS COULD INCLUDE LIU SENLIN — A CHINESE EXPERT WHO DESCRIBED THE REPORT AS “HASTY” — SAYING THE INPUT FROM EXPERTS WAS LIMITED AND ONLY USED FOR REFERENCE.
“I heard that being said. I’m not sure to be honest that that is the case. But again, what we’ve published is scientifically impeccable. They often say this is one-sided. We do not take sides. I’m not on the side of Japan or on the side of China or on the side of Korea. The standards apply to all, the same way.”
GROSSI TOURED THE NUCLEAR PLANT THIS WEEK — SAYING HE’S SATISFIED WITH THE PLANS.
HE CALLED FOR TRUST IN HIS ORGANIZATION — AND OFFERED TO VISIT SOUTH KOREA TO ADDRESS ANY FURTHER CONCERNS.
