UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres raises concern that a concrete dome built during the Cold War to contain waste from atomic bomb tests by the US and France is leaking radioactive material into the Pacific.

“The Pacific was victimized in the past as we all know,” he said, referring to Cold War-era nuclear explosions carried out by the United States and France in the region.

The island nation was ground zero for 67 American nuclear weapon tests between 1946 and 1958.

At the time, numerous islanders in the Marshalls were forcibly evacuated from ancestral lands and resettled, while thousands more were exposed to radioactive fallout.

"However, it was only envisaged as a temporary fix and the bottom of the crater was never lined, leading to fears the waste is leaking into the Pacific."

Never lined...Imagine the discussions that led to that decision.

The environmental liars, thieves and murderers have once again plundered what was not theirs, taken their filthy lucre as a byproduct of warmongering and left the rest of the world holding a big bad bag of shite...again.

Actually the discussion was whether or not the bomb might cause a chain reaction that would set the ocean on fire. The scientists were divided so they flipped a coin and said "oh what the f*ck, let's chance it".
