Oh, well that is better then. There is only half as much harmful radiation as there was a few years ago.
Actually, about 37.5% as much. By the time the radiation plume peaks in our shores in 2016 it will be down to ~18.75%. Is that good? Not really,
but you do have to keep it in mind when evaluating just what is and isn't harmful.
Except the OP is stating they are NOT under control
Except the OP was debunked, I think it was even in this very thread (there's a couple going on about the same subject right now)
Oh, well it is OK then, because we were stupid before we can also be stupid now. Nothing to see here; move on.
No, but it's important to take into consideration when evaluating Fukushima. The existence of that oceanic dumping means we've already put a higher
source of radiation into the Ocean, and we've been able to evaluate it's effects for a long time. Meaning, the after effects of Fukushima are a known
quantity, and for that matter a lower source. If you weren't already worried about radiation in your seafood, there's no reason to be worried now.
We're not even adding 2% to the total radiation in the ocean, likely less than 1% but I don't feel like looking the published numbers up right now.
Take into account all the secret dumping from corporations and governments and I bet the real total is less than a 0.05% increase to the total.
Though that's the ocean as a whole and it takes time to dilute through all of it.
Ok, so there ARE more than the 3 mentioned above. Also, link or it didn't happen on the not significant amount quote.
Yes, there are more than the 3 mentioned above, however what we in the US are concerned about is the release into the Pacific Ocean. The wind
currents blow from Japan to China, Vietnam, and the Pacific Islands, so an atmospheric release affects them, not us. You can see the wind currents
here for yourself. Wind Currents Map
This is from October 2013
This website actually ripped a poorly reported story off from other publications that reported this back in June. If you go back a little further and
look at the source
you'll find that it's misreported. It's
measuring the initial release, and the paper itself was published Dec 27th, 2012.
Then you have this gem of a quote in there, where they're essentially saying they can't measure beyond the initial release (which did include
strontium, most of it went into the atmosphere)
It is worth noticing that in December 2011, the Tokyo Electric Power Company reported an accidental leakage from the evaporative condensation
apparatus at Fukushima Dai-ichi NPP of approximately 150L of water containing 11GBq of 89Sr and 15GBq of 90Sr. In fact, activities of 90Sr measured at
the discharge site in December 2011 exceeded 137Cs concentrations. Thus the 90Sr/137Cs ratio that we measured 15 cannot be used to predict the total
amounts of 90Sr released through direct ocean discharge after December 2011
2014 is now btw. So, bad news I suppose.
Yes well, being 8 days into 2014 when the plume isn't going to start hitting until, March I think it is automatically debunks all of these amateurs
with geiger counters running out to the beach. As if the wind currents themselves didn't do it already.
