6. Radiation spreading in seawater? Ya think?
I know that the article's title is trying to make a fine distinction between water in one place and water in another adjacent place, but the fact is that water is ... um ... water. Like air is air. It has this inherent quality of liquidity. And there are just too many stupid frigging news articles on this disaster which promote the notion that there is some way to "contain" a meltdown of 6 nuclear reactors with 6 even more dangerous "spent fuel" rod tanks, all jammed together at one site, hit by a 9.0 earthquake and 46 ft tsunami.

This is, of course, THE PROBLEM with nuclear power. There is NO system that can contain its utterly deadly fuel. Its fuel requires CONSTANT watering, and, when all the watering systems at Fukushima, including the backups of the backups, got blown out by the 46 ft tsunami, everything started to melt down, and then the water desperately dumped on these plants to stop the meltdowns, goes where?

All the news articles assume that you can WASH this horrible toxic death trap. WASH it! The problem is that you can't.
