Radiations: Report is in! (Updated)

The report of a serious scientific study aimed at detecting radiation from the Fukushima nuclear accident  on the California coast is in. The study examined kelp ( a kind of  giant seaweed) because its tissues easily absorb and retain radiations.

The main finding is: _____________________________________

I wonder if any single one of the myriad commentators who predicted massive radiation infestation on the West Coast of the US will say even, “Oops!”

The afterimage of the alarm will remain for a long time in the back drawers of many people’s consciousness. It will contribute to the vague impression that the world is going to pot in this age of unprecedented prosperity and health.

Tell your friends: The worst happened in Fukushima and nothing much happened. It was the tsunami itself that killed people. It was Mother Nature, not the nuclear plant.

 

Remember this is one, it’s short enough.

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    Oh, the horror!

  2. McHenry says:

    From the “fine print”:
    “There has been no universal trend in the overall extent of drought across the continental US since 1900.”
    And
    “Trends in severe storms, including the intensity and frequency….are uncertain and being studied intensively.”

  3. McHenry: You scooped me! I was going to put this a the head of a new essay on climate change. You might just as well give me the page number. I am glad you are alert

  4. McHenry: Do you know the answer to my question in this posting?
