get a perspective:
1) Fuk.Dai-ichi HAS ALREADY CONTAMINATED all of Eaarth (the northern hemisphere a bit more than the southern)
2) ALL the radionuclides present in the corium and SFPs of Fuk.Dai-ichi 1-4 are LESS(*) than what has been blown into the atmosphere by A- and "H"-bomb tests (more than half of which, AND the dirtiest ones committed by the U.$tates of Amnesia)

*) WAY less for long- (like U,Pu) and medium-half-life isotopes (like Sr90, Cs134/137), and orderS of magnitude less for shorter-lived isotopes (like I131)

release of Cs-137

by Windscale 1957 ......... 22 TBq
by Little Boy .............. 89 TBq
by Fuk.Dai-ichi 2011 .... (15-)35,000 TBq (1a, 1b)
............................. 36,000 TBq (3)
by Chernobyl 1986 ......... 85,000 TBq (2)
by atmospheric bomb-tests .. 1200,000 TBq (4)

1a) according to Tokyo Shimbun, based on government data
1b) according to and Atmos. Chem. Phys. Discuss., 11, 28319-28394, 2011
2) according to wiki/Chernobyl_catastrophe
3) Stohl & al; Atmos. Chem. Phys. Discuss., 11, 28319-28394, 2011
4) calculated using data from Eisenbud & Gesell, 1997

I do NOT understand why we need to petition the world to do the obvious! (Signed anyway.)

Oceans, the animals who live there and air are not stagnant. This is a global issue, and the longer we wait to contain this lethal poison, the worse it's getting!

Thanks, Steve.
