You know, something hit me like a flying brick while reading this......
I was hit by that same brick, and have felt half unconscious ever since...
In the past, I've posted to Fukushima threads with the attitude that it's as safe here as anywhere else. I've known about sites like Hanford for a
few years already. I think that every site which stores or handles these kinds of materials has already contaminated its surrounding region to some
degree. That's why I can't stop laughing everytime I read " oh no, radiation from Japan is going to give the entire world cancer". I have no reason
to believe that the Fukushima reactors were not already leaking before the tsunami washed away any illusion of safety. I don't know how many sites
are leaking. Over the years, I've read about more than a few of them. The specific Hanford tank, which started this thread, has been leaking
150-300 gallons a year, since 1979.
One of the underground tanks suspected of leaking at the Hanford Nuclear Waste Site has been known as an “assumed leaker” for so long—on and off
The level inside tank T-111 has been dropping by 150-300 gallons per year, DOE revealed last week.
I believe we are all mostly screwed a lot more than we will ever know. I think the government has known about it for a long time.
