Fukushima Alarmism

• arclein
The map above comes from the Nuclear Emergency Tracking Center. It shows that radiation levels at radiation monitoring stations all over the country are elevated. As you will notice, this is particularly true along the west coast of the United States. Every single day, 300 tons of radioactive water from Fukushima enters the Pacific Ocean. That means that the total amouont of radioactive material released from Fukushima is constantly increasing, and

Have you seen a house that is about 31 feet by 31 feet by 10 feet high. That's all the bigger a container would have to be to hold 300 tons of water. That equals about 9610 cubic feet.

The oceans of the world have about 322,280,000 cubic miles of water in them (nobody knows for sure how much). There are 147,197,952,000 cubic feet in one cubic mile of water. This means that there are approximately 47,438,955,970,560,000,000 cubic feet of water in the oceans of the world.

Roughly speaking, that means it would take about 4,936,415,813,793,965 days to fill up an ocean-sized container with Fukushina water at the current rate of 300 tons. That's more than 13,487,474,901,076 years. I mean, that's more than 1,037 times the scientifically projected age of the universe.

If Fukushima water is harming the earth, nobody will see the results of it for hundreds of years. This is all a scare tactic.
