Could the continued leaking of radiation in Japan from the Fukushima disaster be contributing to the warmer waters in the Pacific Ocean?

...Sr-90 generates heat as it decays.

Sr-90 is a soft metal. It can be present in dust from nuclear fission after detonation of nuclear weapons or a nuclear power plant accident.

In its pure form, Sr-90 is a soft, shiny silver metal, but it quickly changes to yellow when exposed to air.

Sr-90 can be inhaled, but ingestion in food and water is the greatest health concern. Once in the body, Sr-90 acts like calcium and is readily incorporated into bones and teeth, where it can cause cancers of the bone, bone marrow, and soft tissues around the bone.
