In Japan, government officials have announced plans to release more than 1 million tons of radioactive water from the damaged Fukushima nuclear power station into the ocean. The plans are drawing condemnation from China, South Korea, environmental groups, and local fishers who worry the industry will be further impacted. Japanese officials say the water release will begin in about two years and that the process will likely take decades.
