Just saw this recent article too

 

Fukashima Plant:

 

Huge volumes of contaminated water have accumulated on the site since. Water was needed to cool the damaged reactors and groundwater that became contaminated as it infiltrated the site had to be pumped out and stored.

 

Over 1,000 tanks have been built on site to store over a million tons of radioactive water.

But the site is running out of storage space and the tanks could leak, particularly in the event of an earthquake or a typhoon.

 

So the Japanese authorities have given the site permission to release the stored radioactive water through a pipeline to the Pacific Ocean.

Nuclear energy. Its "clean." Except for the one byproduct that happens to be the most poisonous substance known to mankind. 

 

It's completely safe unless subject to natural disaster or human error. Both of which are inevitable.

FWIW.   Radioactive isotopes eventually decay, or disintegrate, to harmless materials. Some isotopes decay in hours or even minutes, but others decay very slowly. Strontium-90 and cesium-137 have half-lives of about 30 years (half the radioactivity will decay in 30 years). Plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,000 years 

 

These are typical of the waste in spent fuel rods from nuclear power plants.

Good Lord, any one who's seen Godzilla knows this it a classically stupid idea.

 

Will they never learn?
