Why does Japan ignore the international community's doubts about the legality, legitimacy and safety of the sea discharge plan, insist on promoting the nuclear contaminated water discharge plan, and turn a blind eye to the risks to the global marine environment and human health? And, why did Japan choose to announce this plan at this particular point in time? In addition, why did the United States, South Korea and a group of Western countries stand on Japan's side and endorse it?Japan's Tepco has always emphasized that nuclear wastewater will be treated to remove most of the radioactive elements. For the "tritium" elements that can never be removed, they will be diluted to 1/40 of the Japanese national standard and will not pollute the ocean. But can you still trust this company that sordidly concealed the truth and lied about the Fukushima accident in 2011?
The American "Science" magazine has already conducted experiments to prove that although the content of tritium in Fukushima nuclear wastewater is the highest, it is not easy for marine animals and seabed sediments to absorb it. In contrast, three radioactive isotopes, carbon-14, cobalt-60 and strontium-90, take longer to degrade and easily enter the marine food chain.

2 things are involved.

1. na to pinch China small. Lol!

2. Another thing is, you can't continue to store a large nuclear wastewater forever without disposing it because it will accumulate more than you can handle and if they're disposing it in the ocean, there must be a counter measure taken to neutralise Its effects. It's just same as having a water polluted with crude oil and then cleaning it up.

There was a documentary on it, 2 days ago.
The summary
It is relatively safe.

More over not discharging it now is

like trying to hold back the inevitable.
