    The Japanese government has decided to release treated radioactive #wastewater from #Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean. The plant’s operator said the capacity to store the treated liquid will run out by the fall of 2022. Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga has tried to placate the anxieties of Fukushima fishermen who fear the contaminated water will hurt their livelihoods. Is the Pacific Ocean big enough to dilute the radioactive water? #Japan
