I may be wrong, but hasn't the radioactive runoff been increasing in overall temperature since it started running into the ocean?
Not so you'd notice.
The ocean is a very good heat sink and, while dangerous to living things, the radiation levels of the contaminated water are not nearly high enough to produce heating effects.
So Phage, it can't produce heating effects, but let me ask you, is the ocean capable of "healing" itself from the toxic waste that's been dumped in? I always wonder about nature and I feel like it has a way of correcting human error at times...

Aren't radioactive particles supposed to fizz away, or become harmless after sometime?
Wouldn't we be seeing a disturbance in the food chain if fishes start to get boiled or affected by this event?
Why exactly do we put water on radioactive material? Oh that's right to keep it cool.

Just in case I have already warned family and friends off Pacific coast sea food, At what point is the international community going to step in and do something?

Yea I really can't see the boiling, indeed it looks really foggy though....
I'm pretty sure a boiling sea would garner national attention, hey man! something's seriously wrong here.
How do you expect a story like that to garner national attention when no one can even go there, unless you're a Govt. official or Tepco... Its not like people are taking joywalks in Fukushima... We are basically in a place where we need to take their word for it. And if it is boiling off the coast do you think they would just tell the public creating even more panic?

So why isn't it that the UN isn't sending people to Japan to investigate that? Dear Goddess...
Correct me if I'm wrong, but if that disaster is left to go unchecked - that has dire world consequences... right?
So why isn't somebody there investigating that and if found an emergency to not just Japan but the world - why is nobody forcing ACTION upon this? They don't want to clean it up or admit there is a problem because of cultural ego?
What? This is a mad world.
