I am sorry I did come across as rude. I will have to look further into this and I do agree that life in the ocean will be changed forever, but I don't foresee a mass extinction of everything I love in the ocean.
It's been 2 years and 9 months since Fukushima....scientists are finally coming out
and talking realistically...You can google "Pacific ocean /dead/radiation/youtube " and get plenty of
information......Most people don't want to deal with this....

Er... I like penguins and seals and bears and all that stuff, but I doubt they'll die simply because one nuclear central went down.
Let me explain: the Japanese people are well closer to Fukushima than polar bears and penguins, yet it doesn't mean that the Japanese are facing extinction...
edit on 4-12-2013 by swanne because: (no reason given)
The Fukushima radiation will eventually render the world's oceans dead.
All whales , dolphins , seals , sea lions , manatees etc that live off ocean fish and other sea food will
All animals that live on shore and eat ocean fish will also very probably die out...
penguins, albatross , sea gulls , sea otters , sea hawks , pelicans ,etc...
polar bears eat seals so they will be history ....
I never thought about this until today.....
Oh sure..penguins can be kept in zoos.....But it's not really the same thing....
A June 2012 Stanford University study estimated, using a linear no-threshold model, that the radiation release from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant could cause 130 deaths from cancer globally (the lower bound for the estimater being 15 and the upper bound 1100) and 180 cancer cases in total (the lower bound being 24 and the upper bound 1800), most of which are estimated to occur in Japan. Radiation exposure to workers at the plant was projected to result in 2 to 12 deaths.
