The New York Times has recently reported that the workers at Fukushima are running out of places to store the water that has been used to cool the radioactive waste. The water is highly radioactive, and is leaking from its storage tanks at the rate of 75 gallons per minute. In other news, the Japanese government is changing the threshold for danger so that people may return. Thus, doses of less than 20mS/y are now acceptable.
