TRITIUM: Japan’s Radioactive Water Dump Lies, Tritium Truth w/Marine Biologist Tim Deere-Jones
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?
- To learn the truth about tritium. I spoke with Tim Deere-Jones. He is a UK-based marine biologist, researcher and consultant. He specializes in analysis of the radiation threats to our planet’s waters from a wide range of nuclear sources. Here, he gives a brief, powerful explanation of what we are up against.
