Honestly, Japan needs some serious GLOBAL pressure... example, you let 3rd party researchers come in to evaluate and determine if what you say is true, or we declare war on you IMMEDIATELY for poisoning a major resource the whole world depends on, EARTH... Living on the west coast (seattle), this makes me boil up... f*** Tepco and f*** these prideful c*nts....

I mentioned that on page 2, thing is this just adds to, continues to add to every minute, for how long. A bomb is boom and its done of course the radioactivity remains but it does get added to. Maybe the planet can absorb it, maybe it can't, I guess the upside is the Japanese can have a nice romantic sushi dinner by the glow of the yellowtail and squid.

I understand what you're saying and, as an engineer, I can't find logical fault in it. That said, if you cut your finger and get an infection, you care for it even more than you would if you'd never cut it and never gotten the infection. You certainly don't expose it to even minor, in comparison, bacteria because you're dealing with an already overloaded system. Fukushima is at that point. NOTHING radioactive should go in that water now.
But yeah, it's totally screwed. Those cores will be poisoning the Pacific well after our lifetimes are over.
McCurry reports that in December, the Japanese government revised a 2013 estimate of the costs of decommissioning the plant to roughly $190 billion, double its initial estimate.
