I read a report which stated that the leakage was found in trace amounts, however, it is still inexcusable. It's pretty ridiculous that governments actually store radioactive waste along the ocean floor.

I did some browsing and discovered that it is currently illegal to store waste in this way. I don't routinely trust Wikipedia, however, very few civilians have knowledge about this topic. Several nations have temporarily abstained from 'Ocean Floor Disposal'. Still, certain rogue nations have been suspected of violating this agreement, including the United States. Apparently the agreement is called the 'London Convention' and the bans oceanic-dumping of nuclear wastes until 2018. Wikipedia goes on to mention that every 25 years, the decision is voted on by some world government wanna-bes. Anyways, the United States has dumped a <<keep profanity, even "disguised" out of the forums, please>> of chemical weapons and radioactive material into the oceans (http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/RL33432.pdf ). Quite frankly, it's likely they've continued these activities. Canada is also known to have outrageous tritium levels in Lake Ontario. A nuclear power plant in Pickering, ON supposedly spews about 120% more tritium into the lake than the Americans do. http://www.ccnr.org/nucaware_hydroletter.html . Europe's a bit tighter on that kind of stuff I guess, minus Russia and Eastern Europe.
It's called an opinion, Avangi. I don't speak english solely to edit news articles... Try spicing it up some time and you'll enjoy the full benefits of this language too. The topic at hand is the ocean and radioactive material, is it not? I'm saying that while people may be irked that a sub is leaking minor amounts of radioactive tritium, there are MAJOR potential threats to human health below the surface. Our governments casually allow nuclear waste to be dumped on the ocean's floor while people shake their heads in disapproval over the incident involving this submarine.

Thanks for the clarification, AADol. Your punch line seemed to come out of nowhere, but now that I understand what you're talking about, I find it very interesting, and I'm thinking about taking your advice. Are there treaties which allow this to go on in international waters?

Thanks for the great information. I'm shocked but not surprised, if that makes sense.

On the domestic side we only hear about the land storage controversy at Yucca Mt. in Nevada. It's pretty much public knowledge because the state of Nevada is suing the Feds. - A.

When they started doing this the sealed drums filled with radioactive material that wew dropped into the sea over the sides of their warships wouldn't sink so they used shoot the full of holes until they went down.
I've split the thread since it obvioulsy no longer bears any resemblance to a grammar discussion.

Please do NOT use profanity in the forums, even disguised with $ and such.
