but remember how awesome and safe and clean nuclear is, kids!
FullMetalPanda: I'm dumb so I have to ask. Why do they have to keep using fresh water to keep the rods cool instead of the same radioactive water? Is the radioactive water no longer cool?I mean it has to be cool for it to remain water, right? Else it would be radioactive gas? Couldn't they let the radioactive water "cool" down and just use it again?
tommyl66: Bottle it, package it as a new energy drink and market it towards the dregs of the population./What do I win?
durbnpoisn: Use an evaporation process to get the clean water out of the radiated matieral. Store whatever is leftover in huge lead-lined vats, and bury it under ground.
error 303: dispose of the casks
Sin_City_Superhero: Sell it in 1 oz. bottles labled as "Spiderman Starter Kit".
iamepic: realistically, say it was dumped into the ocean. It's not a lot of water. A metric ton of water is 1 meter cubed. What would the effects be? The worlds total water weighs 1,400,000,000,000,000,000 metric tons.How is 0.00000000^A% of that going to make a difference?Also, Electrolysis and/or evaporation would be a good start.

brantgoose: Freeze it into big blocks of ice and ship it to Alaska. As long as the American Air Force doesn't accidentally bomb the radioactive ice, you shouldn't have to worry about it melting and spawning giant monsters who will follow the scent of Japanese water home and destroy fake-looking cities until some kids whose parents are journalists or scientists help the Japanese army to stop them by asking their friend Go-Zilla to fight the monsters.Seriously, freezing is something they have already considered to help prevent leakage.This way, they can save on electricity by permanently dumping it on somebody else's doorstep, lighting the paper bag on fire, and running away, a tried and true method of dealing with environmental problems.
