I had to read that twice

Not because I don't agree, but I have just never seen it in writing before

It is strange to contemplate the end of your own species

As I have said before out of the muck and the mire of the pollution something beautiful will eventually emerge.

That's my theory

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....


It will be ok.

Guess that depends on if you believe in evolution or creation.....


Sorry....couldn't resist throwing the religious into this thread with Fukushima for some humor....

Religion and Fukushima!!!!!!!


Add 9/11 and we really will be doomed



(Sorry but we all need a laugh from time to time)

Thers actually a huge diffrence between the Radiocative fallout spewed out by a nuclear blast and waste spewed out from a reactor in meltdown. Hense why there is a populated city in Hiroshima and Chernobyl is a waste land.

But saying that.

The radioactive contamination from Japan hasnt been all that much in the great scheme of things. I know you get doom porners saying that radioactivity has gone up 500% or whatever. But at the end of th day that 500% is still way below minimal safety levels.

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.

Cancer rates are up because people are living longer. 100 years ago TB,polio, smallpox, Tetnus or Cholera would get most people before cancer. It why cancer rates in the 3rd world are so low.

I have said the Fukushima is likely an ELE event. The part that people missed is that it is going to take quite a while. The largest issue with Fukushima for most of the world is not what is it doing today. It is what is it going to do tomorrow.

Blow 89 tons of MOX fuel all over the place and what has happened so far will seem like a drop in the proverbial bucket. Cancer rates are gonna go nuts over the next 50 years as this event is "In Progress".

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.


That is a myth btw, a cockroach will live longer than us because it has less cells than a human and less stuff to go wrong where we are more complex and will be effected quicker...but the cockroach will still die in the end.

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


Great example of broken logic.

Similar to the statement: If everyone whom ever consumed peas will die, why are we not dead now?

Both ignorance and radionuclides poison slowly.

It would have to be a combination of the two.

It is what it is, and whatever it is, it has happened. We can't stop it. All we can do is adapt to it and try to clean it up before something else makes it a real problem.

I tend to think that everyone who is hyperventilating now is missing just exactly how much water there is in the ocean as compared to how much is leaving the reactor. So far, it's not good, but it's not a death sentence, either.

The big issue would be another disaster happening before they can really get in a stabilize it. If that happens ... well, it will be what it will be, and all we can still do would be to try to adapt and react as best we can.

But there is very little sense in worrying about it day in and day out.

Anything close to the ground will be affected by radiation less.
Roaches have a very low profile and are highly adaptive to their environment. I try to keep optimistic, but with so much contaminated water, possible meltdowns, the 80 some tons of waste on the top floor...radiation levels supposedly so high no one can get close. It won't kill the entire planet, but it will have a lasting effect for centuries to come.

Only if it happens in the dark.

300 tons of water per day in and of it'self is not much. After three years we are at 270,000 tons though. This is still a proverbial drop in the bucket, for now. I happen to think it is going to get a lot worse than it currently is. Why? because when the Corium core hits the water table it's gonna blow. When it blows the #4 fuel pool is gonna make a mess of epic proportions.

All of those nuclear tests have resulted in millions of cases of cancer in the US alone. So no, were not all dead yet. It will take a few decades.
