Yes, generally eastward. But any radiation would be so dissipated by the time it reached the US shores (even Hawaii) that it wouldn’t even be perceptible above background.
Have no idea, but, I do wonder about it getting dumped in the ocean. What would the impact be? Would it be some what protected by all the iodine in the sea? Would it kill off everything within miles? Or would it eventually kill the whole ocean?
Our way but it would be minimal. In fact it would circle the globe and eventually dissipate all around the earth.
I find the hysteria rather humorous. (except for those poor souls hear the plant)
When I was a kid, both the US and Russia regularly detonated large atmospheric nuclear devices.
Somehow I survived.
Right for the Bay Area. As if they didn’t have enough problems with the excretions of homeless people.
kinds of like our (and Russia’s) above ground nuclear testing in the 1950’s eh?
A few months back the dispersant they used on oil in the gulf was going to kill us all.
Chernobyl’s radiation banded all the way around the earth, too. Jet stream takes it and moves it eastward.
Lots of radioactive dust was tossed into the air by hundreds of above ground nuclear tests.
See post #28, there’s a map.
Let’s put it this way...may be time to move to the southern Hemisphere. Rio looks better all the time.
Chernobyl impact was pretty much limited to the immediate area, from what I remember. But, this is by water and there are 2(?) of them? Or is it 5?
“A few months back the dispersant they used on oil in the gulf was going to kill us all.”
However, I suspect it may be killing the fish.
I lost count at three. I think it’s kinda scary.
I feel so bad for the Japanese.
” Which Way Would Prevailing Winds Take the Radiation? “
A nit to pick — ‘Radiation’ is not taken, pushed, shoved, or in any way affected by wind - any more than light or heat or radio/tv signals (which are also forms of ‘radiation’) would be...
Radioactive *particles*, AKA ‘fallout’, do have mass and dimension, so they can be carried by the wind - but I’ve seen very little indication, so far, of any kind of release of these particles.....
Okay - everybody can go back to their regularly-scheduled panic, now... ;)
This map does not agree with the other map. They don’t really know what they are talking about do they?
