It is necessary to take every possible precautionary action, as radiation damage can be irreversible and may be much larger than we expect.

So, Japan is leaking radioactive water because they simply can’t get motivated enough to stop it? A lawsuit would, presumably, be required to sufficiently motivate them to stop this leak? Gosh, those lazy Japanese. You’d think they’d be doing everything they could already.
80,000 gallons a day.
I suspect the Japanese response will be: “Fluk Rou!”
