The Scientific and Technological Options Assessment reportreleased in November 2001 by the European Parliament showed that the combined effect of discharges from the La Hague and Sellafield reprocessing facilities constitutes “the world’s largest releases of radioactivity into the environment, corresponding to a large-scale nuclear accident every year.”

According to a Johnson State College student research paper, the United States began dumping radioactive waste in 1946, and the practice was carried on by 14 countries over a 48-year period. During this time, 80 dump sites were used all around the oceans.  Over that period it was estimated that radioactive dumping had reached a total of 84,000 terabecquerels.

“Using the world oceans as a dump” must stop.
