Ahh yep. No real significant change overall. Not even remotely enough radiation leakage to cause problems unless you are near the plant.
The oceans are a massive sinc for dilution of the leak. Sure sucks for areas near the plant, but not a worldwide catastro**** like Baja hopes it will be.
Anf of course, had we replaced this gen 1 plants decades ago as originally planned and/or actually did fuel reprocessing, this would not have been an issue at all. Instead we are driving model-t's decades past their expected lifetime and then blaming the engineers. Oh, and instead of burning all the gas, we just keep adding more gas tanks once we burn a couple cups from the last 20 gallon tank.
