What is the point of this article? To the "Greenies", the concentration of
radioactivity is irrelevant.
To them, "Any is too much"

Excerpt: "Q. Can the radioactive water leaking from the Japanese nuclear
plant eventually reach the U.S. and be hazardous?
A. It's hard to say how that water will move, because it will spread not
only on the surface but downward in deep layers of the Pacific Ocean. If
it does reach the West Coast, it would probably take at least 18 months
to three years, by one estimate. In any case, nobody expects it would
pose a radiation hazard upon arrival because of tremendous *dilution*
along the way."
