Dilution is the solution to pollution! I thought this logic went out in 70's?
if the background level is high enough and spread out enough, small organisms that turn Co2 into O2 will be the first to feel the damage. The rads dont have to be high enough to kill us, just high enough to disrupt photosynthetic plankton that make up to 70% of the worlds oxygen
just some food for thought
this science experiment is just getting started....
and dont you tell me we are fighting amongst ourselves, thems fightin words!

This is a good point for people thinking this radiation lasts forever:
Some radioactive isotopes rapidly decay. For example, the half life of Iodine-131 (I-131) is about eight days. This means that the activity level of the I-131 isotope drops by half every eight days. Given the length of time since the event, the short-lived radionuclides would have decayed to near background levels and therefore pose no health hazard. Although Cesium isotopes have longer half-lives (Cs-134 has a half-life of about two years, Cs-137 a longer half-life of about 30 years), the radionuclides also undergo biological excretion and do not continue to build up in fish forever.

Uranium is billions of years for a half life and and plutonium is 24Kish years...there is more going on there, that no one can see or admit.......fission and fusion and the creation of transuranic waste....those wastes *typically* are brought to storage facilities where they are guarded with military hardware for thousands of years because they are still 'hot'
I agree the fearmongers are out in force, however, there is something to this as this is much bigger source of rads than the bombing tests at the atolls, and it is still radiating the ocean
and yea that map was sooooooo ggggaaaaayyyyyy! the idiots slurped it up like jenna jamison
some radioisotopes do bio accumulate and stay, others are excreted as the body finds sources of non radiated materials, so the ones that stay, its little different in that the radiation is coming from inside yourself, no bueno
I am not swayed one way or another, exactly. I would like to read some peer reviewed legit info, but it seems hard to come by and this seems like the worst clusterf*ck in mankinds history

chicharronne, ever surf Lowers?
Maybe look into that problem.... there's a Nuclear power plant right there on the surf break! The same water you're playing in just cooled uranium reactors!
For those that surf the Gulf of FLA there's another Nuk plant in Crystal river.
Then there is the border of South Carolina and Georgia. Somewhere along that coast line is a lost Atom bomb! Which they feel certain is most likely leaking by now! Good news is I live in Florida and the Gulf stream flows north. So if you see any three headed fish or legless starfish in Hatteras you'll know what its from!
