The solution to pollution is dilution...???!!!??...

Solar powered electrolysis would slowly concentrate it to make the stored quantities smaller. Those who are against could set up a go fund me campaign to put money where their mouth is.

Sensationalism, the material released is not harmful

People hear "radioactive" and they become hysterical because they don't understand that there are different types of radiation and that the dose is important. The anti-nuclear energy people will never have their minds changed because science is hard so they prefer to remain willfully ignorant.

One of my best friends is a nuclear physicist who works at LANL and specializes in medical physics and nuclear proliferation. The anti-nuke zealots will even try to argue with him despite their significant knowledge gaps. Enviro-mentalists literally trying to tell a PhD in that field how radiation works based on their wikipedia-level knowledge. It's absurd.

Pretty ironic post regarding the anti crowd considering the assurance from pro of how safe it is.

I'd say most people. Nowadays no one wants their beliefs challenged. They're content just to find another "information" source that confirms their existing biases.

Expertise is dead in the digital age. Everyone is an authority on everything.

I think the knife cuts both ways in the era of multiple source "news"...knowledgeable persons on both sides often will not be representing the truth. All you have to do is follow the TEPCO presentations with the Japanese government and organizations that are not particularly pro or con regarding nuclear power...there will be conflicting information that's potentially serious but yet doesn't rise to the level of "clickbait" hysteria.

Yeah that's the image that hysteria conjures when it comes to all things with a half life.
