Could We Lose The Pacific Ocean?

1 year, 7 months ago

I see this picture posted on facebook today. It would appear that the Fukushima Plant disaster is much worse than predicted. News stations aren’t doing much in the way of reporting about it. The radiation appears to have spread out to the shores of North America. This could be something very big in the making. We could be about to face some very real consequences that affect everybody the world over. Am I just being paranoid here?

I doubt the radiation has reached the shores at high levels, although the leaks are incredibly bad…

Pretty troubling – but the gulf handled the oil spill much better than predicted. I’d wager that the ocean is pretty resilient and has its ways of disposing such crap. Ridiculous to be in that position in the first place though.

@oreilly, There are a lot of radioactive isotopes floating around the world, a lot due to nuclear testing and events like Chernobyl, Hiroshima/Nagasaki, but the Pacific is a very big place, dilution would be astronomical.

There are things that can cause cancer everywhere, radioactive isotopes are just one of many, but if exposed to radioactive isotopes it is still no guarantee you will develop cancer, you may just experience burns and such that are treatable.

Remember that radioactive isotopes are “Heavy Metals” and generally in this situation you will have most of it sink to the bottom, mostly in the region of Fukushima, but wildlife, such as fish, can consume the particles and present a danger to the food industry.

It is ultimately a lot like the Mercury incident in Japan http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minamata_disease

Funny Ive been talking about this in my city in FLA and everyone seems to be more interested in Miley Cryus or Ben Afflack. I am very worried about the Pacific waters. They say it could take thousands of years to clean up all the radiation!

It’s just radioactive material, the amounts are not dangerous. Hell, there’s more radiation in the ground in many places where humans have lived for thousands of years, and other creatures before us.

It’s not like plastic waste and PCBs, which are very toxic and also everywhere these days and nobody seems to give a shit

If the Fukushima thing was so bad, we’d be hearing a lot about the people over there. If they’re fine at the epicentrum of the incident, then you’ll be fine across the ocean.

Jeez.

@oreilly, No you’re not paranoid. It probably won’t be our generation or the next, but it will surely happen in the future at the rate we are going.

@oreilly, we’ll never lose the Pacific Ocean because we never had it to begin with. As we continue to manipulate it, however, we may one day find that it becomes a very inhospitable place. And like the case of the deep Sahara, less humans will live there.
As intelligent sentients, we could take responsibility of the Ocean and the Earth in general but that would require not being able to posit excuses and take action.

@oreilly, I agree the situation is, and has been extremely concerning to say the least. I’ve followed the incident since it occurred, being aware of the physical geography of the earth and
It’s processes, this material will be recycled and spread out to eventually (100,000,000s of years from now) be mixed into all organic matter and life forms. The discussion should be, what will be the consequence of this material. I’m ready to move from the west coast, I rarely eat fish, I would eat fish everyday but unfortunately I don’t trust any of it. I’m concerned with even the organic produce I eat from the farm I work for. This material, depending on how it will effect life; could change the living ecosystems of the planet forever. I’m curious what effects well see, and how it will effect our consciousness. Hopefully well all become super heroes!

I’m glad the incident has been getting some publicity lately. When I told people kelp off the coast of LA had 500% radiation just months after the incident, people looked at me funny.
