The Japanese government has decided to release treated radioactive water that has been accumulating at the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant into the ocean.

Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) is expected to start discharging the mildly-radioactive water in 2023.

    There is barely any "radiation" in the water and what is left is comparable to background radiation. It will be diluted so quickly that nothing will be affected. Hilarious seeing everyone get so pissed.

    Its nothing new, theyve been releasing it constantly for years since the the place blew up.They tried to tell us they were storing it in tanks, and everyone knew it wasnt enough storage, but the world wont notice.Most of the tanks leak into the ground water that flows through the facility. Its a catstrophy that will never be fixed.Three reactors that melted down and the fuel rods dissapeared into the floor,still too hot to clean up.the biggest nuclear disaster in history still going on. Doesnt get enough media coverage

    Yeah I read that too...for sure those Tunas and other pelagics at Coral Triangle will be swimming those waters one way or another....no wonder Godzilla is born in Japan 🤣.

    It would also happen close to home down in Florida with the ongoing breach of those toxic water...not to mention those toxic wastes in the middle of the ocean between Catalina & PV....I dunno if someday if there will be Godzilla like creature that may emerge from our coast. LoL 😂.

    Exactly what I was thinking.
    When was the last time you believed anything a government told you that they weren't forced to?

    fishkilr -- The only reason we still have swordfish in the markets is because the inspection site on the fish was changed to save the fleet. If you take the sample from the belly fat like the scientists want to, there is too much mercury. Tuna also, they let them sample from a place where they know the levels will be acceptable.

    I don't think that a potential tiny radiation increase is anywhere near the problem that is already posed by other things that we know about. But the Japanese are so intensely sensitive to radiation that it may in the end reduce their demand for bluefin, which will take some of the pressure off of the resource. And that would be a good thing.

    I am pissed that Japan has decided that a small increase in background radiation, which increases the risk of cancer to everyone exposed, for decades to come, is OK. Perhaps I wouldn't feel that way if they had hired an independent, recognized expert to do the math to determine how many additional expected cancers and deaths will result. Instead, they used words like trivial and insignificant. Perhaps they regard 1,000 people as trivial. Much better (at least if the expectations are low enough that we would all regard it as trivial) for them to provide the actual numbers.

    The "it will be so diluted" theory would justify spreading pollution of all sorts. In hazardous waste remediation, there is an old saying: "The solution to polution is dilution". Except the EPA (correctly) sees it differently.

    This was 2013 I think and I never heard anything else about it after and we used the same buyer til 2019 and brought lots of fish..
