I think they dumped it in the wrong place. Should have been Iceland.

Good greif.... :Q

Will human stupidity never cease? :| Let's just irreversably poison the only world we have. This isn't Master of Orion where we can all pack up and leave to another planet after this one becomes uninhabitable from waste pollution.

I am not suprised in the least. Nobody cares about anything except for MONEY now a days.

Do you think it costs a lot of money to dump nuclear waste at the bottom of the ocean???

hmmmm. now do you think it costs a lot of money to research how to get rid of nuclear waste effectively?

<< In fact, in recent decades, divers in the area have brought up at least 50 species of worms and crustaceans previously unknown to science. >>


How many heads did they have?


Hey Locutus - What is the point of no return? You already can't get yesterday back. The owrld is ever changing. If we pollute enough, we will upset eco-systems, but evloution has a way of finding equilibrium in changing environments.

Please don't tell me you're counting on EVOLUTION to save your ass from starvation after there's no cropland left, water is undrinkable, meat animals are inedible, etc...

Cows are not adjusting to foot &amp; mouth or mad cow disease.
Chickens are not getting over salmonella.
Topsoil is not regenerating fast enough to compensate its loss.
Rainforests are disappearing at an alarming rate, along with the world's oxygen generation.
Deserts are spreading rapidly over areas that were destroyed by slash-burning forests and &quot;developing&quot;.
Sea plankton and other small sea life which also generate oxygen are being killed by pollution.
Drinking water is being tainted by industrial waste at higher and higher levels each year, and with worse substances.
Antibiotics are creating more powerful strains of infectious disease.


Behold, the almighty dollar!

If people would stop thinking of themselves before anything else, they'd realize their destructive path. (I mean destructive in more than just environment.) :|

And there's still some people that ask, &quot;Is man's nature good or evil?&quot; You even need to ask? Just because you haven't killed anyone doesn't mean you're not a selfish human thinking of your own best interests and be damned anyone else.

Within our lifetimes, mark my words, we will see the error of these follies come to a head.
It won't be pretty.
