  • You mean the link or the content? If the latter, I apologize for being horrible at Paint, and the original is there if someone want to download it or zoom it or something. I can upload to other site or try to draw again. – JoeJoe May 11 '18 at 22:41

    By the way, although a literate speaker can probably read this kanji just fine, you should never ask character identification questions without the surrounding linguistic context (if there is a context). The way we recognize characters (or letters, etc.) uses the linguistic information from the surrounding context as well as the character itself, so it can make a difference. – snailplane May 12 '18 at 4:11

The image is small, but I think it says

nuclear waste disposal

核 translates to "nuclear", for example 核兵器 "nuclear weapon", etc.
