A decade after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent tsunami caused a meltdown in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, the Japanese government decided on Tuesday to approve a plan to release over a million tons of tritium-tainted water into the Pacific Ocean. Neighboring countries, as well as local fishery groups and environmental organizations immediately condemned the decision, while the U.S. government and independent experts were equally quick to endorse the plan.

Though the outcome was inevitable, the government’s decision has long been coming. The contaminated water is accumulating daily at the rate of 140 tons, a consequence of Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s (TEPCO) round-the-clock operation to cool the crippled plant—including the three damaged reactors and the melted nuclear fuel that seeped through their cores and spread to the bottom of their containment vessels. Rain and ground water are also adding to the deluge.

So the US supports this which is insane considering that there is all of this "concern" regarding climate change.

It will do damage that generations later will hold us accountable for!

It's quite a good policy. The radiation is meaningless if it's not near humans, so move it away from the humans.

It's just tritium, for pete's sake. That is, it's mildly radioactive form of water, one of the hydrogen atoms being radioactive. It has a short half life. It bioaccumulates not at all. Pouring it all out will change the radioactively of the oceans not at all.

Could this be another Simpsons prediction? We won't really know until reports of three-eyed fish start coming in.

Tritium is an isotope of hydrogen whose beta decay has often been used to illuminate phosphors. I used to have a Timex watch with a tritium backlight that glowed green in the dark so I could see the time.

It's a cold day in Hell when I agree with this fucking SJW twat.
