TRITIUM: Japan’s Radioactive Water Dump Lies, Tritium Truth w/Marine Biologist Tim Deere-Jones

Tanks of radioactive tritium-contaminated water from Fukushima. Japan plans to release more than 1.3 million tons of it into the Pacific Ocean,, despite danger to ocean life, onshore populations.

This Week’s Featured Interview:

Right now in the news there’s a lot of talk about tritium – Japan’s planned dump of more than 1.3 million tons of radioactive tritium-contaminated water from Fukushima into the Pacific Ocean. And in the U.S., decommissioning company Holtec plans here in the U.S. to dump tritium-contaminated water from the Pilgrim nuclear reactor into Cape Cod Bay and from Indian Point into the Hudson River.

But what is tritium? Is it dangerous? What does it do? How does it behave in water? What is the truth of what we will face if Japan and Holtec get away with these water dumps? What might happen to us if they do?
