Japanese Fukushima Nuclear Reactor - Dumping of Radioactive Waste water into the Sea


I have been following the news of Japanese Fukushima quake hit reactor closely and greatly saddened by the fact that they have released radioactive tainted water in to the nearby sea. The Fukushima Japan Nuclear Reactor is still not stable and the danger level was raised to level 1 yesterday. This level is equivalent to Chernobyl disaster level.
I was a little concern during the early stage of the disaster when I heard that they are using water to cool down the reactor. It is very hard to contain water and it flows freely everywhere easily. No one knows how much of these tainted water have seeped into underground water system. Now they are dumping all the radioactive water in to the sea and fishes around the areas are contaminated.
The whole thing is getting out of hand! They should have entombed the whole plant with sand and concrete in the first place! Please don't destroy our sea!........so, Pete can continue fishing...

PS : Gosh, looks like I am turning into anti Nuclear activist! No lah, I am still a Foodie at heart! Nuclear and Particle physics happened to be my major and favourite subject. Because of my personal interest, I still keep track of latest nuclear and particle physics news all these years after leaving the university. LOL!

Pete, I can't even read the details on the news, it is so upsetting about the contamination.

Particle and nuclear physics? I knew you were smart but I didn't know you were a genius! Good for you.

I heard something very funny since the news of the nuclear reactor melt down issue. Especially during the time the news was just spread.

A lot of ppl are saying not to eat Japanese foods, as they might be contaminated with radiation...
Ok lor..

Then guess what else they said?
They say cannot go eat at Sushi King or buy Sushi from Carefour also, coz the Sushis are also contaminated with radiotion!!??
LOL...

Since when Sushi King and Carefour so generous to import seafood from Japan to make the sushi? LOL

Anyway, I believe our sea foods are still clean at the moment.
At least, those fish from selat melaka is still very clean...

Every country and every one knows that earthquakes are common in Japan so why did they built nuclear power plants? they know very well if they blasts what will be happened. Now they facing that situation it is very bad and unfortunate. Most powerful countries in this world like Russia, America, China and other European countries should help Japan to come out from this situation as soon as Japan come out from this situation they will fulfill their needs as well before this Nuclear blast in fukushima no one dont know where this city and what is the advantage of this city. Now every one can easily identify fukushima.
