Fools Who Ignore Science

The IAEA has concluded that TEPCO's current plan to discharge ALPS process water into the ocean will have negligible radiation effects on humans and the environment.
The Japanese government seems to be interpreting this as an endorsement of the ocean discharge of treated water, but the IAEA only published the results of its analysis and did not say anything about the pros and cons of the discharge policy.
It is natural that there are various opinions about the IAEA's conclusion, but it is surprising that some people say, "If it is so safe, try drinking the treated water.
This may be irresponsible talk, but when it comes from the Chinese government's chief diplomat and the leader of the South Korean opposition, one can only be appalled.
These people do not even know that wastewater standards are completely different from drinking water standards.
They don't realize that such foolish statements will only serve to discourage those who oppose the ocean discharge.
The problem is that the level of trust in Tokyo Electric is in doubt.
If there is a problem or accident in the operation of the plant in the future and the radiation level of the treated water exceeds the standard, we cannot trust that TEPCO will promptly stop the release of the treated water and notify the local government and residents of the results.
Regarding the release of treated water this time, the explanation to residents and fishermen was also left to the Japanese government, which makes us doubt TEPCO's sense of responsibility to be a party to the situation.
I think that is what worries me the most.
