It could be worse. Fukushima could have made the anti-nuclear power lobby even more rabid in countries that are far less likely to suffer large earthquakes and tsunami.

Oh wait.

Oddly enough, that also failed to happen when America dropped nuclear bombs on Japan.

Lol really? I'd be willing to try radiated Asahi. They should give out free geiger counters with every carton, that'll drive up sales again for sure.

didn't watch the vid but that whole thing is never going to get fixed and is a lot bigger problem than anyone knows. yeah, 1 banana, but radiation is some bad shit and I was planning to move to SE asia soon, seriously considering not

The area surrounding the power plant is really the only area that is going to have any significant issues. Just because the radiation levels are detectable in the ocean doesn't mean they are any where near detrimental levels. He is some cool math.

1 cubic kilometer = 2.64172052 × 10^11 US gallons
~714 million cubic kilometers of water in the Pacific
1.886 x 10^20 gallons of water
7.139 x 10^20 Liters of water

Now there are varying sources for how much water is leaking/becoming contaminated. for the sake of this demonstration I will be using a contamination of ground water rate of 300 tons per day.

300 tons of water = 79,000 gallons per day
3 years have passed at 1095 days
Estimated contamination 8.66 x 10^7 gallons in 3 years

Now since the ocean currents don't evenly distribute the radioactive material lets cut the oceans volume by a factor of.... I don't know... 1000? So that gives us 1.886 x 10^17 gallons of water intentionally contaminated.

Now for the fun part, what is the concentration of this radioactive water in the whole of the ocean, which we have just reduced the volume by a factor of 1000 mind you.

(8.66 x 10^7) / (1.886 x 10^17) = 4.5917 x 10^-10 gallons of radioactive water per gallon of ocean water. That converts to 3.824 x 10^-9 lbs of radioactive water per gallon of ocean water.

http://www.epa.gov/rpdweb00/tenorm/drinking-water.html

That link is the EPA guidelines for maximum amount of radiation detectable in water for safe consumption. So we are going to do something crazy. We are going to convert the full radioactive water mass to uranium and see what the concentration is.

We now have 3.824 x 10^-9 lbs of uranium/gal of water.
This is equal to 1.735 x 10^-6 g/gal.
Convert gal to L and we get 4.583 x 10-7 g/L
One more simple conversion of g to micrograms gives us our number:

0.4583ug of Uranium/L of water

That number is 1.52% of the maximum allowable level for drinking water.

Now I have made many, many assumptions in my calculations, but the point still stands, the radiation in the water being dispersed in the pacific ocean is minimal. The only area that is going to be affect by the radiation is the area directly surrounding the reactor and a small area of ocean where the radioactive material has not gotten caught up in the ocean currents and become dispersed.

I welcome any questions to my math, methods, and would appreicate any other takes on this matter.

Fukushima put out far more radioactive materiel than Chernobyl. the biggest difference being the release from Fukushima was as controlled as possible where Chernobyl exploded and spewed the material in to the atmosphere. You are comparing a meltdown to what was essentially a dirty bomb explosion.

Relative to levels of radioactive material released, yes.
Relative to the environmental and long term damage to the surrounding area, no.

Really depends on which aspect you want to focus on

How exactly did the Japanese control the release of radioactive material from Fukushima?

We unlike the Russians, the Japanese actually used their control rods, kept back up generators running, used pumps to pump in sea water to cool the reactors, and stopped the meltdown from being much worse than it could have been. Instead of ending up with an explosion releasing the material all over the atmosphere, the Japanese used controlled venting of the radioactive steam so they would not create an explosion due to pressure build up. Minimal atmospheric contamination. There wasn't much any one could do with the crack in the side of the containment shell which is why Fukushima has been able to consistently release radioactive material.

Chernobyl happened all at once and released enough material to devastate the area and heavily pollute the atmosphere. Very high concentration all at once as opposed to a steady consistent dose like is happening in Japan.

Because it really isn't a half asses Chernobyl. It wasn't even the same thing. Chernobyl was an explosion as a result of super pressurized steam in the core, Fukushima was a meltdown that occurred due to power failure.

Haha I'd love to see that. I mean I still drink it anyway because it's now the 3rd cheapest beer I can buy from the store, but if I drink it in front of certain people I'm sure to get lectured on why all Japanese imports are bad for the environment or something and I don't really wanna bother with that

Nuclear power and nuclear weapons are kind of a specialty of mine. Since most people run and hide at the first mention of radiation, I take it upon myself to educated people and try to shed light on how safe nuclear energy really is.

When it comes to nukes, my funny bone is broken
