Japan current event powerpoint

  1. 1. Japan Nuke Plant Dumps<br />Radioactive Water into Sea<br />By Jim Chang<br />
  2. 2. Background Information<br />
  3. 3. On March 11 a devastating earthquake and a massive tsunami hit Japan<br />
  4. 4. This destroyed the power plant’s cooling system<br />and caused a nuclear meltdown<br />
  5. 5. Workers pumped water from the ocean<br />into the reactors in order to keep them cool<br />and prevent further meltdown<br />Water pumped into the reactors became radioactive<br />
  6. 6. The container which stored the radioactive water was filled up and could store no more<br />
  7. 7. The Actual Event<br />
  8. 8. Engineers pumped less radioactive water in the water storage back into the Pacific Ocean<br />In order to save the storage space in the container for more radioactive water<br />
  9. 9. It’s better to have the less radioactive water in the ocean than the more radioactive water which must be kept in a container<br />
  10. 10. The less radioactive water being dumped into the ocean is up to 500 times the legal limit for radiation <br />Times 500<br />
  11. 11. The government has asked Russia for a ship that is used to dispose of liquid nuclear waste as it tries to decontaminate the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex<br />
  12. 12. The dumping of the less radioactive water shouldn’t be a problem because the ocean is very large<br />
  13. 13. Hopefully people will learn from this disaster and prepare for any future disaster before it’s too late<br />
