As disappointing as a release of this muck into the sea would be, I'm hardly surprised it's on the cards. The ocean has long been seen as the out of sight, out of mind solution. Currents from Japan already head over sensitive regions before heading into some of the most polluted waters in the world. And, the sea has an uncanny ability to make things turn up in unexpected places years on. Unsurprising, yes, but a disappointing and ultimately cowardly solution.
Why don't they use radio controlled robots (something like bomb-squad robots) to perform tasks that would be harmful/deadly to humans to accomplish?
The robots could weld and do all kinds of things if they where constructed right. I mean they have built advanced robots like ASIMO before, they should be able to build a custom robot that can do what they need.
