Idea for WWF newsletter article

Another topic that would be worth exploring is the issue of nuclear waste / detonations and oceans.

Perhaps an article and strategy to deal with the sheer number of detonations of nuclear bombs in the oceans and the impact on wildlife.

The second issue has to do with storage of nuclear waste in oceans and the fact that it is now being considered as a viable method of storage once-again.

"From the 1940s through the 1960s, barrels of radioactive waste were frequently dumped in oceans.
This ended in 1970 when the EPA (Energy Protection Agency) determined that at least one-fourth of these
barrels were leaking."

This brings to question whether or not the existing containers were ever removed from the oceans and 'properly' stored.
