    Fukushima To Possibly Dump Radioactive Water Back Into Ocean

    https://hardware.slashdot.org/story/...ack-into-ocean

    omfglearntoplay shares a report from CNN:

    Eight years after Japan's worst nuclear disaster, the government is not sure what to do with the contaminated water that remains -- but its environment minister says dumping it into the ocean might be the only choice. To cool fuel cores at the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant, operator Tokyo Electric has pumped in tens of thousands of tons of water over the years, according to Japanese national broadcaster NHK. Once used and contaminated, the water is put into storage. Now, storage space is running out. And during a televised press conference Tuesday, Japan's environment minister Yoshiaki Harada said he believed the only solution was to "release it into the ocean and dilute it." "There are no other options," he said.

    Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga emphasized that a decision has not yet been made. "There is no fact that the method of disposal of contaminated water has been decided," he said. "The government would like to make a decision after making thorough discussion."

    The water is processed to remove most of the radiation but I am curious, once that is done, why not re-use it instead of storing it and using more fresh water like they are ?

    Electric Cars are probably largely being developed to help push Nuclear into the public's eye
    as a good thing;

    Nuclear Power is the most dangerous of man's inventions, its not clean, safe , responsible , nor affordable.
    Armageddon level risk.

    Water 'processing' doesn't REMOVE radiation, it re-locates it.

    Why don't they use it for geothermal plants and inject it into the earth?
