    Here’s a cool animation of all the nuclear tests since 1945

    Interactive map

    Note the amount of tests on U.S. Soil.

    This is a silly posting.
    The amount of nuclear material in a fission bomb is measured in kilograms, whereas the Fukushima installation holds 1800 tons of nuclear fuel, in 6 reactors and 7 storage pools.
    At least 4 reactors and some storage pools are damaged and leaking. Current volatiles emissions from radioactive decay are running at about 10% of the Chernobyl total output and seem likely to continue for months, perhaps years.
    There is no substantial clean up effort under way, as TEPCO, the utility in charge, is clearly entirely overwhelmed by the task, whiled the national government is weak and clueless.
    This is a disaster and it should be recognized as such.

    These Pacific atoll shots produced some pretty decent tsunami, too.

    “Etudiant” – do your homework. Most Pacific atoll shots were hydrogen bombs (with a little fission trigger) with yields up to 2 megatons (USA). They were detonated in the wide-open ocean because they were so dang big.

    I liked growing up in the 50s when nuclear power had the potential to make “anything possible”.

    Now, we get hand-wringgey greens who want it to be “nothing allowed”

    Where’s the fun in that??!!!
