Re: Fish that glow in the dark

Wolves are thriving in the "zone" as they call it. Just watched a PBS documentary on the area. And the swamps have returned because man is not removing the beavers anymore.

Yeah, decades of fusion research hasnt yielded much... let the chinese do it, then we'll steal it from them , not like they havent stolen technology for a long time!

You should try to train that third eye to keep a watch while the other 2 are closed
These fish could be a singlehanders best friend!

I'm not trying to minimize nuclear radiation fears, but the general public's understanding of the dangers from nuclear power is really warped. In general if you can't describe off the top of your head the difference between fuel grade and weapons grade material I'm just going to tune you out.
Isotopic enrichment. now on to something more interesting. Charlotte said Santispac might be a future anchorage. She said Bahia de Los Angeles was a destination. What is there, did I miss something?

You can mock all you like, its what some people do best - just before I have the dubious duty of saying i told you so.

Hows Egypt melting down 12 months after i said it would?

Re: Fish that glow in the dark

Kinda reminds me of a film I saw about GIs in Nam being made to drink a glass of agent orange to show the folks back home how harmless it was. I wonder which cemetary they got buried in.

Interesting article. I seriously hope it's overstated.
So... thinking towards reality here.... how much does a device to measure radiation in your seafood cost and where can one get one?
It's such a hot topic... hard to believe the news corporations dont want to be the first to test fish on the shelf and break the story, for the cost of a handheld device.....? So I'm a skeptic until I see the meter readings...

Re: Fish that glow in the dark

Probably less harmful than the cancer radiation treatments I am getting presently. Would prefer eating pacific tuna to them any day of the week.
I do appreciate your concern and attention to the subject Anjou, but it is not as if my voice or others were heard in eliminating nuclear power or weapons for the last few decades. So society sometimes needs horrific lessons to learn their mistakes. Is unfortunate but history also repeats itself all too often.

I would think it is overstated since the NOAA chart they used to depict radioactive movement across the Pacific is really the overlay used to show Tsunami generated wave height.

You just have to be a bit wary of what is on the Internet.

Re: Fish that glow in the dark

I wonder how the Japanese speak of GE the company that engineered and sold them the Fukushima Daichi reactors designs. Maybe they laugh a little when they built them on the down wind side of there Country, and used the ocean kinda like a toilet flushing towards the US. Bet they shop China for there next ones.

Now I'm confused. For years the liberals have been bashing anything with the word "Nuclear" in it. They shut down reactors and storage facilities all over the world. Anti-nuke protests are always big news in the "liberal media." One of the protesters (a former liberal MA governor) rode the anti-nuke media wave as far as the US presidential nomination a few of election cycles back.

And now you say they're trying to cover up their one big chance to say "I told you so"?

I give up. I can't even keep the conspiracy theories straight any more.

Yeah, that one confused me too! But it's just more powerful using the "liberal" adjective!
I sent the link to the article to all 3 local tv news stations as Consumer Alert asking them to test the Pacific fish in Pike Place Market to see... would be interesting story either way....

Nuclear leaks are scarely ****. You don't need to be a liberal to worry about how this stuff is managed. We still don't know how to deal with the spent waste. Look at the leaks in the us at a major military storage facility. Used to be we just ran it out to deep ocean and dropped it. Pretty sure everyone thinks that's a dumb idea now. Sometimes even if its a liberal squeaking it's worth taking a moment and thinking through repercussions.

Re: Fish that glow in the dark

Yeah, once the fish test positve the trick will be isloating if they are contaminated from the storage in Hanford up here via the Columbia river or from Japan!
