Experts said that now there is the threat of a global release of radioactive waste on the territory of the Marshall Islands.
Prerequisites for concern, you can call the integrity of the concrete dome in place, crammed with deadly substances. This waste survived the testing of nuclear weapons by the Americans in the previous century. About it reports the edition Liga news Russia.
Before Australia arrived for extraterrestrial nuclear weapons.
In the period from 1946 to 1958, two Atoll in the Marshall Islands was the site for testing nuclear weapons of the United States. In those surroundings the US army tried in action the power of two thermonuclear bombs. It should be noted that due to these tests all the surrounding Islands contained in the soil large quantities of radioactive waste.
20 years after these experiments, all samples of the contaminated surface was placed in the funnel, which formed after the explosion. In addition, this place was built a concrete sarcophagus.
The dilapidated state of this structure has led to the fact that the waste funnel started to clean up seawater. Currently under threat are 800 people who live near deposits of radioactive. Now every cyclone or surge threatens the lives of data residents.
