    A crime against humanity is within sight as the Japanese government announced on Tuesday its decision to start discharging nuclear-contaminated wastewater from the crippled Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant into the ocean on Thursday.

    It's common sense that every stretch of ocean in the world is connected and no nation can shield itself from the effects of this crime. While the Republic of Korea, which called it Japan's internal matter, will be among the first to face the pollution, the US, which supported Japan's plan, will soon taste the bitter fruit that the contaminated water takes 57 days to pollute half of the Pacific and then reach its shores.

    For future generations to stay free from the fear of nuclear contamination, for the global marine ecological environment to be spared a systemic challenge, and for the Earth to remain habitable, it's high time the world joined hands to render a last endeavor toward stopping that crime.

    There are only less than 48 hours left.
