Fukushima: A River Runs Through It

[snip]
This is Not the Movie Version
(San Francisco) – Robert Redford and Brad Pitt along with other top notch actors made a superb movie named “A River Runs Through It” in 1992. The movie was from a story set in the American West by Norman Maclean.
This is not that story, however. This a story of an ongoing, grimy industrial disaster that destroyed any hope of continued life on Earth. We have seen it come to pass in our lifetimes. People  mostly stood by and did nothing. There is nothing we can do about it now, it is a done deal and is now called an “Extinction Level Event.”

The old river would still flow through the plant area as it always has. Concealed, underground, it will leisurely carry intensely radioactive molecules from hundreds of tonnes of runaway, highly Lethal reactor cores into the Pacific Ocean for eternity.
...
That, in a nutshell, is why this disaster is called an Extinction Level Event (ELE) and the still flowing, invisible underground river has as much to do with it as anything. For once the Rad gets into the ocean and the air; it goes worldwide, nuking everything.
