"Iodine-129, one of the other radioactive isotopes spewing from the damaged nuclear facility, has a half-life of 15.7 million years. That’s way worse than the half-life of strontium-90, which is a mere 28.8 years. But when you’re talking about poisoning the Pacific Ocean what’s a few million years? At this rate, we won’t have to worry about the next few million years. The effects of this ongoing tragedy will overcome us before the strontium is rendered harmless."
