if this data point is 1600 miles off the coast of San Fran, what does it have to do with desalination in Carlsbad? How well-versed are you in radioactive isotopes and the metrics for measuring them? Moreover, the thresholds of contamination and the effects resulting from said contamination? Context is key.
but is still more than 500 times lower than US government safety limits for drinking water,

what exactly do you want me to explain - and more important - will you take heed ?
you state that you believe mr gunderson - despite the fact you do not understand his claims - so why ???????????
and more critically - the reason you reject the japanese govts claims - is invalid

Is eleven atomic disintegration's per cubed meter of seawater dangerous?
If so, please provide references.
I found this just now.
For example, the roughly 0.0169 g of potassium-40 present in a typical human body produces approximately 266,000 disintegrations per minute, which equates to about 4,400 disintegrations per second or 4.4 kBq of activity.
Since a typical banana contains about half a gram of potassium, it will have an activity of roughly 15 Bq.
