Please vote to urge President Obama and the UN to take immediate action, as requested by Japanese nuclear experts and concerned citizens, to secure the spent fuel rod pool at Fukushima, before it spews out 85 times the radiation of Chernobyl worldwide!

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 nature.com 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.
