Is it a "small" amount?

Everything is small compared to the ocean? In 2014, they stated they had 875 TBq (2.45 g) and were gathering an additional 230 TBq (0.64 g) per year. It's likely less per year, now. For comparison, natural sources generate 148,000 TBq per year. I'ld call that small.

The suggestion that they wait to 2023 seems like a sensible way to manage the public perception. It's half, okay? If it's truly just tritium then it is really just a matter of properly dispersing it wide and far.
