    Default Plan to discharge Fukushima radioactive waste water into Pacific Ocean cancelled

    A plan to release radioactive waste water from Fukushima into the Pacific Ocean has been cancelled, according to reports.
    Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) had made a decision to release tritium-tainted water, which was injected to cool the damaged reactors in Fukushima, into the Pacific Ocean.
    Tritium is a radioactive isotope of hydrogen. The health risks of diluted tritium-laced water has been debated in the scientific community, with some scientists stating that it can be safely released and is of little danger unless ingested in large amounts while others argue it remains a health hazard.

    I'm very happy the decision to release the radioactive waste water was reversed. But, the reason for the reversal is almost laughable!
