I am convinced that mankind will not be content until it destroys all that sustains us. Dumping millions of gallons of radioactive water into the ocean? What about marine life? What about our whales and seals and seabirds and fish and coral beds?
As an aside, I quit eating fish years ago when I heard that 95% of the fish will be gone from our oceans in 50 years. That was about 15 years ago....35 to go. Not anymore. We're on the verge of an environmental disaster.
Human gluttony and greed trumps biodiversity and even life itself. Why is Japan fooling around with this? Dump cement in all of those reactors now and bury the stuff like they did at Chernobyl. This is not just a Japanese problem. The whole world should be involved in the decision-making on this and we should do whatever it takes to put an end to this testament to man's folly. And we should do it now.
