In a few years you’ll be praying for oil spills instead of what the Japanese power plant is giving you.
Today they dumped 10,000 gallons (UPDATE — now it’s 10 million gallons) of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean.
Unlike oil from a well, radioactivity doesn’t go away for thousands of years. It gets in fish and the stuff they eat — it’s a mess.
Now they’re talking abnout getting a tanker that holds water to take the next geysers of water but they don’t know what to do with the tanker once it’s been filled. In a few months there will be a giant floating barge –an island of radioactive water that will itself be emitting radiation — where will they park it? Not in my driveway.
