The Nuclear disaster in Japan once over, one very important fact was forgotten: Nuclear Activity once begun does not disappear; It lasts and lasts and lasts: and it has to go somewhere if not really secured. That there are HUGE amounts of nuclear toxic water spiking new highs in radiation in dicey tanks at this one plant, (one already spewed over 300 tons! of radioactive-toxic water into the Pacific) is not comforting at all.
Japan and it's huge nuclear companies have blown it from day one from the initial catastrophe to now; they and the Japanese Gov. have a bad habit of lying to the public about the seriousness of these events. I think they are again or whistling in the dark. Watch where your fish comes from - and soon your water if even 1/3 of those tanks go South.... my thoughts anyway.

Yeah well, he who casts the first stone and all. We have a few facilities that if were met with a natural disaster(like a hurricane or tsunami of significant strength) we'd be screwed too... Nevermind one of these has a history of potential sabotage attempts that if succeeded would have an effect not unlike the Fukushima cluster bomb going on right now...
Well, that would explain why tuna being caught off the California coast have been found to have "higher than normal" traces of cesium-137 and the high number of dead seals washing up on shore.

I am no nuclear physicist and did not sleep in a Holiday Inn last night but if I read this right 2,200 millisieverts is ¼ of what may be dangerous.Sievert - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaOne sievert carries with it a 5.5% chance of eventually developing cancer. Doses greater than 1 sievert received over a short time period are likely to cause radiation poisoning, possibly leading to death within weeks.
I will avoid the three eyed fish and the ones with legs though.

This is strictly economics Ice dams can be built around these tanks and prevent this from happening. I don't understand the Japanese. They forbade us from bringing in a nuclear ship to their ports yet they allow this company to fail in its moral obligation. MSGThit the nail we now have machines that can detect levels that were non detectable just ten years ago. We still don't know for shure what level is safe today.
Look up chernobyl you find that they have never found the core. The China syndrone is a very real thing. The russians have a fleet of nuclear submarines sunk at the pier because they have no money to defuel them. The cover over chernobyl has holes in the cover big enough to fit a house through. Birds continue to fly through the area and spread contamination. The dome of the containment is very unstable and if it falls will spread a very toxic highly radioactive cloud for the world to breath.
This toxic water could have been used to wet concrete and form large blocks of cement that would not leak anywhere. Shure they would be hot but stable. There are other chemicals that can stop the chain reaction but then you have a very big very hot useless piece of junk.
To be honest the place that scares me is the laboratories that use accelerators and things that they have no idea how the experiment will go. Shure they have a very educated guess but still not all the outcomes are as planned nor are they good.
I'd rather go back to coal as the major energy producer, pollution and all, then wake up to my neighbor Nuclear Reactor finding I've suddenly got 4 noses.
How many Nuclear accidents and whole reactor sites going south - like Chernobyl and Japan's - before we stop this absurd claim that Nuclear Power is safe. It isn't in the real world - that's all you have to know. Dump it. And find something inherently safe.
