Why are we killing the sea?
It comes to light, courtesy of Norwegian daily newspaper Alfenposten, that Russia has been dumping its nuclear waste into the Kara Sea (Arctic Ocean) for decades.
The extent of the problem is greater than anyone could have imagined.
The nuclear waste in question includes:
14 nuclear reactors including 5 reactors containing spent nuclear fuel rods,
1 nuclear submarine (K-27) complete with two loaded nuclear reactors,
19 ships containing nuclear waste,
Where's the rest of it?
What other countries have been dumping nuclear material in the sea or are currently using the sea as a nuclear garbage site?
