  •  okay lets be specific (0+ / 0-)

    whats the damage and status at:

    Fukushima Daichi Unit 1?
     FD Unit 1 Store Fuel Pool?

    FD Unit 2?
    FD Unit 2 SFP?

    FD Unit 3?
    FD Unit 3 SFP?

    FD Unit 4?
    FD Unit 4 SFP?

    FD Unit 5?
    FD Unit 5 SFP?

    FD Unit 6?
    FD Unit 6 SFP

    Common Fuel Pool Fuku Daichi?

    Fuku Dainin Unit 1
    F Daini U1  SFP?

    Fuku Daini Unit 2?
    F Daini Unit 2 SFP?

    F Daini Unit 3?  
    F Daini U3 SFP?

    F Daini Unit 4?
    F Daini U4 SFP?

    Tokai Unit 1
    Tokai Unit 2?

    How many curies of radiation were released by the incident at the above reactors?

    Answering I don't know is a reasonable answer, by the way.

    •  Relevant how? (0+ / 0-)

      Answer: not enough to pose a significant health impact, according to, you know, actual scientists who understand epidemiology

      •  so you dislike specifics (0+ / 0-)

        well, that's just sad.

        because the numbers matter here.

        Why don't you take a look at the sea lions turning up dead on the California coast.  

        the numbers aren't looking good for them

        •  maybe (0+ / 0-)

          they were poisoned by unicorn farts? HOnestly, of all the ridiculous things you've come up with, that's up there.  I'm sure that Fukushima explains the increase in ADHD too, amirite? /snark

           Seriously, no one has a clue what is driving that.  Your lack of interest in the actual science, and your interest in blaming everything on Fukushima shows that you really are not serious in delving into the reality of this.

          •  if you can't say how many curies were released (0+ / 0-)

            there is no scientific discussion with you.

            •  We established that (0+ / 0-)

              I think you quoted 60 million.  Which, after being analyzed by scientists, gave rise to a risk assessment, which is what actually matters.  

              But yeah, if you don't have the atomic weight of K-40 memorized, there's no having a scientific discussion with you either.  (I'm not convinced you know what the word "Scientific" actually means)

              •  so you are comfortable with the number 60 million (0+ / 0-)

                for the total curies released?

                we can discuss the isotopic spectra of what that was next,
                but, I feel like I have to walk you like a 4th grader through the math.

                •  whatevs (0+ / 0-)

                  it is an estimate, since of course know one actually knows.  HOwever, there's no need to talk about isotopes here, since people who actually do that for a living have actually already done that.  And, no, you don't really need to walk me through it, since I've mostly already recognized what is actually relevant, and it isn't that.  I don't see any reason to sit through a lecture on stuff that I already know, already understand isn't relevant, and probably understand better than you do.   I'm going to hazard that I probably understand those key epidemiological models well enough, seeing as I have a PhD in population biology.

          •  could you tell this guy it was Unicorn Farts? (0+ / 0-)
