Disastrous, nuclear power must obviously be banned immediately!
Cesium-137 has a radioactive half-life of about 30 years, and traces of the isotope still persist from above-ground nuclear bomb tests in the 1950s and \’60s. But cesium-134, which has a half-life of only two years, \”is inarguably from Fukushima Daiichi,\” Stanford University marine ecologist Dan Madigan told CNN.
Madigan is the lead author of a paper published in this week\’s edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. One of his co-authors, Nicholas Fisher, said levels of both isotopes detected in fish caught in August 2011 are one-thirtieth the amount of naturally occurring radioactive potassium found in all marine life. It\’s also about 2.5% of the more restrictive limits Japan imposed on fish caught for human consumption after the accident.
Chris Busby\’s paper explaining how this will kill millions will be published real soon now.
