Fukushima keeps on leaking, Japan keeps on issuing confusing explanations – Grist

FukushimaOh, fuk … ushima.Problems continue to burble up at Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant — or, in this case, gush out.

We learned last month that contaminated water has been leaking from the plant into the sea at a rate of about 300 tons a day. Then last week came word of a more serious spill of 300 tons of extremely radioactive water, which the government classified as a level 3 incident on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale.
