Why Are We Not All Dead Already?

So everyone likes the "Doom Porn" of Fukushima

Well if the events at Fukushima are going to kill us all, why are we not dead already?

Over the past 50+ years HUNDREDS of nuclear devices, spewing radiation, have been detonated in, on and above the oceans

United States: 1,054 tests.. 106 directly impacting the Pacific

Soviet Union: 715 tests

United Kingdom: 45 tests (21 in Australian territory) ("Some" in the Pacific)

From the first nuclear test in 1945 until tests by Pakistan in 1998, there was never a period of more than 22 months with no nuclear testing.

Nuke Testing

If all the doom porn advocated are correct.. We died years ago

I know there will not be much interest in this as it does not feed the mania, but I thought perhaps some people would want the truth

All of these past events have effected us in ways. We adapt to a point but there is a point.

cause this internet is full of bogus conspiracies attached to a unknown agenda. just dont believe anything until it goes down. it aint that serious. just move on and go outside and see how beautiful it is.

I can't, I'll get frostbite.

The thing with Fukushima is that by itself, it's potentially more dangerous than all past events combined.

Alright. Point taken.

But what are the differences between the types of radiation we're talking about? Bombs vs. leaks(meltdown?). Is there any difference? And if so, is one exponentially more dangerous than the other?

I'm still waiting for my latent mutant powers to emerge from all this radiation! I've even taken to eating as much Pacific seafood as possible. If it glows, in my belly it goes!

I do stay away from "Atlantic Salmon" though -- because it's not really Atlantic...that means "farmed" pumped full of chemicals and dyes. I'd rather risk mercury poisoning from tuna in a can.

Cancer rates are crazy.
What is it now? One in three will be affected by cancer somehow.
It doesn't seem to be improving, either. I knew some people who grew up generationally from those desert tests in the States. Now every male gets/has prostate cancer, most women have one of several types. Only the old timers get a check from the government.
There is a reason the world quit testing above ground and in the atmosphere.

Nuclear Meltdown vs Nuclear Explosion is still contested but most experts agree on some things

1. A meltdown is at least equivalent to a hundred explosions
2. Nuclear explosions have less total amount, but higher quality, shorter lasting, but more lethal radiation

Point is

No matter the difference, if it was going to destroy the world, there have been MORE than enough "testing" done to have finished us off

So yes

Meltdowns are worse..

Just not worse than the total number of tests by a LONGGGGGGG shot

Supposedly because our consciousness can't be killed as it just migrates to another universe within the multiverse. Therefore in every universe we did die in we just hopped over to one we didn't.

I'll see those nuclear physics and raise you a quantum entanglement.

Cockroaches survive nuclear explosions, how are we different?

As for mutations, take a look at pro sports, every year more and more athletes are getting bigger, stronger, and faster. Maybe there's a connection? I doubt it, though.

I just think that life adapts to slow poisoning as it becomes the new normal. Now if they stopped with the poisoning, maybe we would all just drop dead. Like taking an addicts drugs away too fast.

Good question!


where my posts begin

I am hoping that our magnetic field is sucking a bunch of nuclear material out of our upper atmosphere?

I think what most are trying to get at with the discussion on the fallout from Fukushima is that it is a lot of radiation being released into the ocean. There have already been adverse effects seen and some speculated. Should this high content of radioactive ocean water have a major impact on sea life then that will in turn have a major impact on life on the planet. There is a balance to the ecosystem that, if thrown off at a pace that nature can't adapt to, will cause multiple failure points that could lead to a mass die off.

I am not one of those that thinks radiation is floating over and is going to wipe out the west coast. I am one that thinks that the amount of radioactive material that has been released into the ocean from Fukushima already is enough to cause a tipping point in our oceanic life and possibly cause a global breakdown in other areas of the ecosystem.

I look at it as a gradual process that will take place over a 10 year period.

One can hope

Listen everyone

No one is ever going to say, (I hope not anyway) that what is happening is good for our earth..

But the way to handle it is not to go around shouting "Doom Porn" that anyone with a functioning neuron can prove wrong..

Logic will always win the day

Now THAT folks is a decent outlook

I would only change the 10 year period to one of a hundred

We may lose some sea life, but nothing really ever happens on a global scale in less that a hundred

Either way, it's not good

Not the "END IS NEAR" bad, but not good either

Cancer-Causing Chemical Found in 98 Shampoos and Soaps

Lots of people will be needing radiation treatment to CURE cancer.

Very true. We are at a point right now where we already had too much radiation.

Why aren't we dead yet?

Go to japan if your so confident that Fukushima is doom porn, I'm sure they'll let you help clean up.

Safe journey.

Been there and back many times

I have family that lives and works there

Both in the North and South

I love that place like no one can that has never spent quality time there

I think we have to move on, almost 8 billion on planet earth, and every single one of them are here for just a short visit, even if some live to be 100 or more yrs, whats that in the vastness of time eternal... some generation will face the end, if it's the current one or next one or some other in 1000 or 10000 yrs time, it's going to get to a stage when this earth will or can no longer support human life forms, its a species that demands too much.... so whether we blow ourselves up, or poison ourselves, or get burned by sun or drowned by water, what of it? mankind is on his way out, today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, next decade, next century whatever, it's coming which shouldn't matter, as every single human has a short lifespan on earth, something somewhere will be the end for all of us....
