The entire Northern Hemisphere has toxic radiation in varying degrees, none of it "safe" and of no issue for concern. I am right pissed off about it.
So am I.
I agree. I hate such sentences which are meaningless.

We get it. You care about people you havent met nor will you ever. Keep it to yourself and stop cluttering up posts with useless information.
If accidentally, a fission reaction goes out of control as a result of not controlling the emission of neutrons, a nuclear meltdown can happen which can then release highly radioactive particles in the atmosphere. In contrast, in case of nuclear fusion if the reaction goes out of control, the reaction would stop automatically as it it’ll cool down. In addition, in case of nuclear fusion reaction, the amount of radioactive materials produced as waste is very small and the maximum damage which could happen is the vaporization of anything in the immediate vicinity of the reaction.
With regards to these factors it can be said that a fusion reaction is a more environmentally friendly method of producing nuclear power.Energy requirement: It takes less energy to split two atoms with fission than it does to fuse two atoms, which is why fission reactors were developed first, and why fusion reactors have not been developed yet.

Ionizing radiation, is ionizing radiation. There is no "toxic" form of radiation, it all has to do with the amount you receive in a given time frame. We are born under a giant radioactive ball of fire, our electronic devices, i.e. cell phones, TV's, the computer you're on now, all give off radiation. We are all made of radioactive stardust. The word radiation is scary thanks to all the government propaganda during the cold war, and nuclear weapons are of course deadly. But, alot of the fear we have of radiation is very emotional. I'm not saying that we should take chances with too much radiation, we should force power companies to replace fission reactors with fusion reactors, if that's at all possible. They just shut off when there's no power...cooling isn't an issue with fusion (that is the kind of reaction that our sun is).
You think about it for a second, if the general public knew about it there would be noise, then rioting then mass hysteria. A bloodbath would ensue with polititions and the Corperate wealthy draged into the streets and slaughtered. So by holding off as long as possible the people in power can buy time to secure themselves in safe areas with security and army protection. That will ultimatly fall as the people who guard them secumb, but those hiding will hope that enough have died in the meantime to make it safer for their survival . The government will give you iodine pills and snake oil, and tell the best thing to do is stay inside, while those who are aware of what really is happening will take to the streets with murder in their hearts, and justifiably so. But with So many pissed survivors, the guards will finally be outnumbered and out of amunition, then the ELETE will fry, and rightfully so. SO yea, it's being kept silent and of no great concern............. All Lies............... But Wait....

Common, almost all of us knew that we have been lied to from the bèginning, that we are actually being roasted by radiation but it is being avoided tolet us know. As soon as we start to feel it, they will invent some new desease with a weird name. Common now! We all know the game. Why do we always have to pretend, we are suprised?edit on 12-4-2011 by CarlitosAmsel because: spelling
