I haven't read the entire thread but I did read the first page of mostly pessimistic responses to the situation off the coast of Japan. I agree
entirely that the situation is terrible, but there is a response to this situation.
First of all, what is leaching into the Pacific is radioactive elements suspended in water. The ocean has huge amounts of "heavy metals" of all
sorts suspended in it, including uranium and others. The Japanese who have a hunger for raw materials for their industrial activities investigated and
researched mining the ocean for all sorts of metals using special filters that they developed. This technology exists. There is no doubt about it.
It's on the web for anyone to learn about.
The international community should be jumping on the Japanese over this situation. If it takes an international effort to solve the Fukushima problem,
then that should be undertaken and the Japanese should be billed for it. In addition they should be given a quota, monitored internationally to mine
out of the Pacific metals in equivalent to those dumped into it by the reactor disaster.
I'm no expert, but I think this can be done.
One of the big problems is that the Japanese will probably insist that all the other big polluters in the world do likewise and what's wrong with
Technology exists to deal with this issue. Of course it would be better if we didn't have to deal with it, but we are where we are.
Apologies if this was dealt with earlier in the thread.
