I keep thinking about Rev. 8:11".....One-third of the water turned into wormwood, and many people died from the water because it had turned bitter." I don't normally quote scripture, but the horror of Fukishima has me reverting to biblical thoughts!
If you add Revelation 8:10 to that, you learn that Fukushima is not Wormwood.
Revelation 8:10 The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water"

Whilst the ongoing contamination isn't good, I don't think we are at panic stations just yet, nor should we be at all.
The ocean is rather large, by the time any of the nasties have gotten a few miles from Fukushima they are diluted to a point where it shouldn't really be much of a concern.
So let's just leave it alone right? There is lots of water to take care of that.....
No concerns here.....

Not trying to fear-monger but, this large problem can get only larger. And honestly, there would be no need for an hostile take over or any kind, people will beg for the governments help as they would be the only ones able to provide protection and clean water. Dependency is slavery too.
Revelation 8:11 KJ version
And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

All right, you seem pretty confident that our oceans will protect us from meltdowns into the drink. So, how many meltdowns can we have? I guess there's nothing to worry about if Japan gets rocked again right? After all, our ocean is big enough to dilute any nuclear disaster. Isn't that what you're saying? There's nothing to worry about because humans are always correct on these complicated mathematical problems. Hey? Isn't that right? We can calculate with precision where the currents will go, how much dilution occurs among the plethora of variables. Just like we can calculate exactly where climate change comes from and how much pollution is responsible and from where it comes from. Just like how I can calculate which neighbor's leaves in my yard came from after the wind blew it there. In fact, I think we can calculate exactly where that leaf will land after it drops just like we can calculate what happens to 400,000 tons of leaking radiation daily for 4 years.
Sure, nothing to worry about because us humans are omnipotent.

Trillions! Trillions! TRILLION!
There are 10^18th of uranium already in the ocean, and that's just one isotope.
Yet another example of people freaking out because they're science illiterate.
41 Ebq. Want to know what an Ebq is?
Drop in a bucket.
According to the second link, 37 Trillion Becquerel's equals a single curie. Why do you suppose they don't keep it simple for people? Could it be that they seek to sensationalize and propagate fear instead of display rational thought on the subject? Seems to be the case.
Now, be honest. Are you freaked out over a Becquerel or a Curie. Let me put it another way, does the value in trillions automatically cause you concern, or does single digit values cause you concern? Yea, you've been duped.
