Another disaster waiting to happen? (sunken nuclear submarines - not just Russian)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_su...submarines

No wonder the Russian Government wants a large presence in the Arctic.

Quote:Before the London Convention of 1972, an international agreement that prohibited marine dumping, countries were free to use the oceans as a trash heep for nuclear waste. Though the Soviets signed the treaty in the late 1980s, it wasn't until after the break up of the Soviet Union in 1991 that the Russians opened up to the international community about the extent of the Arctic dumping campaign.

Japan Times Wrote:Tokyo Electric Power Co. succeeded Sunday in safely removing a massive piece of debris weighing roughly 20 tons from the fuel pool of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant’s damaged reactor 3 building, the utility said.

The operation was considered a major step toward removing the 566 fuel rod assemblies that have remained in the pool since the triple meltdown at the Fukushima plant in March 2011.

Apparently, they are going to start pumping contaminated water
into the ocean (after cleaning?) tomorrow:

Hope they know what they're doing over there 13.gif

Quote:For now, Buesseler’s citizen-science initiative is humming along. Donations from more than four hundred people and a range of organizations, including Lush, have enabled testing at more than sixty sites along the Pacific coast of North America. Inevitably, though, interest will fade again. To keep measurements going during his next stint in the wilderness, not to mention after he retires, Buesseler is working with his Woods Hole colleagues on drones that could automate sample collection, and on isotope-absorbing ankle bracelets for surfers (“So you can see what the surf is like and what the cesium is like off Redondo Beach”). The real challenge, though, isn’t technical; it’s persuading people that we need to know what is in the ocean, and how it spreads, before the next Fukushima. “It is tempting to just run models, but to me that isn’t enough,” Buesseler said. “Let’s get some real data.”

Isn't it odd only one worker was affected?

Scientists' reach out to public with their findings, but face hate and distrust.

"Dr. Cullen said he understands that people are afraid of radiation, that they distrust governments and are wary of scientists. Despite that, he’s still hoping to reach out to them with scientific facts.

“I feel that the education system has failed these individuals in certain respects,” he said. “I feel their motivations are genuine and their desire to understand is laudable, but I think [the reaction of hate and fear] highlights the need for scientists to engage more directly with the public, to explain what we do, how we do it.”

Dr. Cullen is right. The scientific community does need to do a better job of talking directly to the public. The unfair attacks he’s experienced may make others reluctant to do that. But without their voices, we are left listening to the less informed – and to the haters."

Oh gee, no, oh mee oh my,

how could we ever distrust the fine, upstanding class of humans





















who always sided with the dictators and globalist elites to invent
ever more efficient ways of ğkking killing us all.

WTF did the distinguished Dr Cullen expect?
Little clowns waving flags?

They bloody well need to be distrusted it seems, after world wars, atomic
bombs, hypersurveillance and goddamn RFID chips.

Sorry for off-topic rant.
Thank you to scientists and nerds for the interwebz. chuckle.gif

The scientists' science and research keeps coming up with the same results.
