Fukushima’s Nuclear Signature Found in California Wine

Fukushima’s Nuclear Signature Found in California Wine

From the link above: "The Japanese nuclear disaster bathed north America in a radioactive cloud. And pharmacologists have found the telltale signature in California wine made at the time."



I'll have a glass of your Merlot, hold the Cesium 137 please.

3 reactors are still leaking by the way in case anyone forgot.

Fukushima is the biggest, 'under the rug' situation I can remember.
The fact that is still leaking, and clean up efforts have been less than stellar at best, is a sad situation for humans.

This should be (and should've been since it happened )top news, every single day, until it is properly dealt with.

As bad as Chernobyl was, at least the Soviets made a credible effort to contain the problem.

Japan's response is pretty much just "ignore the problem & maybe it will go away."

And it looks like at least one is still Melting down.

It should have been a 24/7 global effort (which I believe was promised?)
Every first world country should have throw every and any available recourse to combat the fallout from this.
I still won't eat seafood, unless I know for a fact its from the Atlantic.

So it's about twice as high as 2010 but 2,500 times less than the 1960's? And you have to go through a fairly involved testing process that destroys the wine to even detect the minute increase? I'll worry about other more radioactive things like having my junk in front of the undercounter microwave while it's running.

The fear mongering never ends when it's about the radiation boogeyman...

These articles never show information to give their numbers some perspective.

Haven't forgotten. Still WATCHING.
It is easier for some to ignore and try to forget about the potential threat it seems...

It's in there, they just don't say that it's negligible.

I don't think the public is being given much real data at all.

Makes sense... In 2008, Californians still had enough sense to pass Proposition 8. After Fukushima, they went full ra-tart.

Coincidence? You be the judge.

Funny how those environmentalists and AGW alarmists will go all over the world making demands, but won't step foot in China or Japan. I say we send Greta Thornbird over there to protest in front of the nuclear plant, and take antifa with her, along with the resistance movement in case she's attacked for her protesting.

The public wouldn't listen anyway.
If anyone is really curious they could pick up a Geiger counter on Amazon for $100.

Maybe the Fremch are pushing these articles to scare people off the best non-Bordeaux reds in the world.

That amount of radiation? I'll take the irradiated Pinot Noir please!

Microwave ovens do not produce ionizing radiation so my guess is if there was anything to worry about you'd feel it pretty quickly.

I already don't drink California wine... if I can help it. California's wine has more alcohol by volume than Italian or French wines, and a true epicurean doesn't drink wine for the buzz. A fine glass of vino paired with the right hors d'oeuvre is like a symphony of flavor on my pallette, which is why I stick to vino d'Italia.

But yea, nuclear vino es no bueno. That's quite unfortunate, though totally not surprising. As if the elevated alcohol levels didn't already ruin the subtlety and nuance of flavor, here come the radioactive grapes just in time to f everything up real nice.

We should all just start calling any wine made in California after the year 2011 - Pinot Nucleáro.

I would say there is some real data here. I would also say there is a lot of data omission about Fukushima. I am sure there is classified data on Fukushima.

You know, like would you tell the world if it was going to be destroyed by a space rock in 2 years. Avoid panic and all that.
