Fukushima is Largest Ocean Release
The nasty lesson of course is
that throwing the damn thing into the ocean actually fixes the problem.In fact once a reactor hits meltdown, that is
surely the smartest thing to do.It is
not a neat engineering solution to a nasty under predicted problem but it is
pretty fool proof and stops the problem of increasing aerosols which is not a
Again, no one would ever permit
such a plan to be put in place beforehand but somehow we need to think more
like this at times.
It appears that the major contaminant
mostly ended up in the ocean, solving a lot of problems.
Generally I am a fan of natural
ocean dilution of many traditional waste streams, but no protocols are even
slightly salable.For instance we haul
municipal garbage from the ocean up to the desert in order to mummify it for millennia
of natural preservation.
I once suggested that we select
an atoll with a sealable lagoon as a far better solution (of course is wanted
to annoy some self righteous enviros at the time). Aside from baiting Greenpeace, the idea
actually has plenty of merit, far in excess of any scheme to build mountains in
