This article may seem somewhat over the top but as I keep checking it appears to be a pretty good representation of a disaster that is getting worse and worse. In a couple of year’s time we’re going to truly discover the impact this is going to have on the U.S. West Coast, but things are already beginning to wash up. No one has any idea what the impact on the marine ecosystem is going to be. The effect on Japan is o! nly beginning to be understood, but its true scale is still unknown.
As if that weren’t enough the American nuclear site at Hanford also has leaking tanks, and there are more sites as well. We are going to see more and more of this as the aging nuclear infrastructure breaks down. The quicker nuclear plants are closed the better. Fukushima and Chernobyl stand as warnings we must heed.
