That's a good idea. Cause this whole mess will be wrapped up in about 34 years anyway even without the radiation. Our only hope is to move to Barrow or points further north.

U.S. will see unprecedented heat waves by midcentury


Steady, unprecedented heat waves could soon hit many parts of the planet, striking the tropics first as early as 2020 and much of the United States by midcentury, says a study today that's based on models from 21 climate centers worldwide.

What have these models accurately predicted in the past? Data models can be useful, but they have to be reliably accurate before basing decisions on their predictions.

Or we could be on the verge of an empending ICE AGE....

Or, nothing could happen except we wasted dozens of years worried about nothing and spending money on the "Sky is falling" crowd...

Reguardless, the planet has been here hundred of millions of years before us and will be here millions of years after we are gone and it could care less. Life is born, dies and goes extinct before we were here, all during our stay and will keep doing it after we are gone.

Point is, enjoy your time here, it is only a flash of a second in the big picture. Don't waste it by worring about something you have no control over in your lifetime.

It is apparent that hawknest is impressed by large numbers no matter how minute the quantity they are describing actually is. The article he is putting forth is best described as designed to scare the Chicken Littles among us. First a gallon of water is a cube approximately six inches on each side. Look at the nearest friendly milk container that size and it is kind of obvious to any intelligent person that approximation is appropriate. I don't know if Hawknest is familiar with the size a square mile is but here goes some elucidation for his benefit. If you line up 10560 one gallon milk containers you would have that many gallons of water if all of them were full. Then figure lining up 10560 lines of milk containers packed tightly against the first row and you would have the first six inches of water in your square mile. Now that is a fairly large amount of water at 111, 513, 600 gallons of water. Then to approximate the surface of the Pacific Ocean you would need to fill up 63,780,000 of this square miles of milk jugs. If you multiply out that number with a computer you get something silly which is 1.17758E +12 which is scientific notation for a number which none of us could type out in a normal lifetime.

Then if you still have any ambitions to count zeros the author of this piece of exaggerated horse manure is impressed or addicted to large meaningless numbers which as they stand are meaningless to any of us. He refers to "BECQUERELS" which refers to the number of atoms that react in a period of time. One Curie in the old system we use is equal to 37,000,000,000 Becquerels which means you really have to start typing zeros. I doubt is Hawknest even comprehends that kind of number since even the Tea Party people could couldn't count that high. By the way the average depth of the Pacific Ocean is in miles so the dilution factor is quite high for the previous smount'

The articles he's putting forth is full of holes, as usual, kind of like his brain must be.
