A big part of the problem lies in the failure to design safety systems which themselves fail safe. Parking waste fuel rods on top of the reactors may have kept the problems local in a country desperate for space, but not removing them to be reprocessed at frequent intervals was an act of avarice amounting to criminal stupidity, found out when the tsunami killed the power keeping the coolant cool.
If there's one subject crying out for proper scientific study, it's examining error propagation, focusing on how the apparent chaos contains seeds for disaster nexuses, the pivot points where a stable problem becomes a disaster.

The other night on television a crew with a helicopter landed on an Alaskan beach and they walked a section of the debris that is steadily accumulating, everything from styrofoam to plastic jugs to just plain trash. They said that the entire sea coast of Alaska is affected, and that when the politicos said they had found but very few that had indubitably traveled from Japan it was because they counted only items that had actual Japanese characters and words on them. They said that, based on previous data, the trash today is almost entirely from the tsunami.

If the currents bring trash here, there is little doubt but that they also bring less visible things.

Oh, for the days when we thought the oceans limitless!

Thanks gnu, First real day of freedom from work since I was in my 20s. Unfortunately, I woke up at 5 am (I intended to sleep in:(

Yesterday, on my last day. I planned to keep a very low profile and just fade away. But, I was contacted by many past and current colleagues from all over the place. I admit, it was nice hearing from them. I strongly insisted on no "retiremet party". But, yesterday my boss (I guess she no longer is that) talked me into one into one for early March. I am still "iffy" about that?

Sometimes folks get into tussles (various levels) on mudcat (and like me. get carried away on the keyboard and send before thinking what I typed),for a variety of reasons. I suspect it is a given, considering the wide variation in participants and geography (combined with the nature of the keyboard. I trust that all of us could "go beyond that" and stay mudcat friends, at least at some level.

BTW, I even disagree with my cat each day - he normally wins. But< I am ok with that:)

Gnu, the Cdn research is in place by " happenstance". Oceanographer, Dr Smith, has some 38 years in the job, and my guess he and his environmental research will end when he leaves. I suspect " the love of science" keeps him working. (Btw, nice to hear from you, I enjoy your insightful perspective to the site).

If you read the last part, it is clear that there is little US funding for this important environmental research either. It is sad tovsee scientists publically "beg for funds" to keep us healthy.

(On a related front,after 35 years in my current job, this is my last day at work. Fortunately, I have a replacement to "hand the torch to",a real luxury in today's downsizing climate. She is a very talented single mother in her mid twenties. It is rewarding and career-reflective to see the "enthusiasm for the job" in her eyes).

It seems that the UK design review process has been extensive. 5 years, 27k manhours and $56M. Still, one has to wonder why a leader in nuclear tech would hire a foreign company to... oh, yeah, $ for the politicians and the rich men who pull their strings. EDF does have a lot of plants in France but I can't be arsed to look up their safety record. In any case, safety records are useless when yer playin catch with raw eggs.

Unless the contaminated water situation is brought under control, it will be impossible to decommission and dismantle the crippled reactors.
(The forecast of 40 years to dismantle the reactors already is uncertain.

I was reading about that near disaster aboard the British sub. Thinking "Nothing can go wrong" is not the right attitude when dealing with nuclear power plants. Most of the time things are boring but in those rare instances when things go wrong vigilance and skill is needed.
