Toxic Water

The situation at the Fukushima Nuclear Plants isn't getting much better.
A report today said that 100 thousand tons of radioactive water that have leaked out.
That's 90 million liters.
Let's pretend that's gas instead of toxic water.
And let's pretend you filled up your Hummer with it, and started driving.
How far would you get?
Well, you could drive down every paved road on the planet not once, not twice, but 5 times.

Haha. I'm really liking the concept of this blog, more and more I read it.

Interestingly enough, if you were to drive a Hummer five times around every paved road in the world, you wuold produce exactly as much pollution as the explosion in Fukushima, Japan did!

But really, ok, the numbers are big, but we still have to consider the quantity of the water in ocean. What impact can it give on that scale?
