The Context

the three mile island accident in the three mile island accident in the us, the waste water there it was evaporated and subsequent studies found out that radiation doses to people from the evaporation process were about 300 times higher than they would been if the water had been discharged to the local river. so i wouldn't say... of course when concrete dries a lot of the water evaporates. so i wouldn't say that's the best option at the moment. i'm not saying it's not possible with certain types of concrete but i wouldn't be doing it at the moment. i learned a lot tonight. good to talk to you. thank you very much. there's been a large drop in the number of drug related deaths in scotland. the number who died last year was down 279 on the year before. a figure welcomed by the scottish government, after a year on year rise since the 90's. and yet it still means that 1,051 people lost their lives last year.
