For all of the people sounding off, what do you suggest they do? And if your reaction is "Well, just store it!" then the question becomes where, for how long, until what standard is reached, etc. There is little or no public consensus on these issues, and without a consensus there are not likely to be solutions. What happens if they do release the tritium? What does that do to the environment? Is tritium naturally present in all water (yes, it is). How much will releasing it cause that to rise, locally and in the world-wide water supply? Is the change even measurable 1 km away out to sea? I don't know these answers, and without them I have NO opinion.
