Seems pretty legit to me.
Thanks for sharing. Seems legit to me also. I learned a couple of things from this:
1. There's a warm water spot off the coast of Washington state where not only does warm water accumulate but perhaps higher levels of radiation. The
good news is that the levels reaching the coast may be lower than expected since this maybe gyre captures some of it, though eventually the
radioactivity in the ocean will continue mixing. The point is that the west coast of the US probably won't see any more radioactivity than it did
during atmospheric nuclear testing in the 1960s.
2. The tests for low levels of cesium cost $550 each!!!! Apparently they need extreme precision to test for such low levels and even then some tests
come up with no detectable cesium, but certainly not all. The coast of Japan has been the trouble spot but apparently the ocean will survive, again
with probably less consequences than all the atomic bomb tests in the 1960s. I had no idea that each test would cost $550. No wonder they aren't
testing as much as I might have expected, but there is more testing than I thought.
