How Many Nuclear Bombs Worth of Radiation Did Fukushima Release / Is Releasing

CodeShutdown
 
Here is an estimate of becquerels from Hiroshima followed by three estimates of Fukushima release and how many Hiroshima bombs its equivalent to. Paper #3 looks good, so 10k Hiroshima bombs
AMOUNT OF RADIATION EQUIVALENT TO NUMBER OF HIROSHIMA BOMBS
89,000,000,000,000 Bq equals radiation released by …1 Hiroshima bomb (2)
15,000,000,000,000,000 Bq (lowest estimate of total released)= 168 Hiroshima bombs (2)
276,000,000,000,000,000 Bq (medium estimate)= 3,100 Hiroshima bombs (1)
860,000,000,000,000,000 Bq = 9,660 Hiroshima bombs (3)

  1. Good point, I modified the title.

    On a totally unrelated note, have you worked with the Kingdom of Fungi? One of the "3 great" divisions of life, along with Plants and Animals.

    I am growing Enoki, Maitake (Hen of the Woods), Shitake, and Portabello. All growing inside. Most mushrooms are fall mushrooms, the lower temperatures "set them off" as well as CO2 as in covered in leaves blanketing the CO2 downward.

  2. Aoples and oranges. The radiation source term from a weapon is much much different than a power plant. A weapons deadly eddects are blast and pressure. The amt of fissile material required for that tech is much different than peaceful applications. Ironically, nuclear weapons lead to peace and kept peace, saving billions of people. The humam population wpuld not be 7 billion today without the Atomic Ahe.

  3. after you prevent the eating regimen, it isn't always a very good idea to do too much workout. Your body will experience exceptional at some point of the time you're weight-reduction plan, but after you have stopped http://musclegainfast.com/leanfire-xt-reviews/
