    The article doesn't say.

    These creatures didn't get signs typical of radiation poisoning, the maps showing radiation drifting over Alaska are in the public space, now the creatures have signs typical of radiation poisoning.

    Not proof, certainly, and of course the issue of proving could only be done if we were following the seals, walruses, and polar bears around when/if they ingested radioactive elements and then followed the radioactive bits into their body to see what would happen. Or put them through a full body scanner geared to detect radiation.

    And true, correlation does not prove causality.

    But on the other hand, causality has not been suspended on earth, last I heard.

    Wildlife, no signs of a specific illness; accident; wildlife with signs of specific illness.

    To rule out causality is completely irrational.


    Today, if you exist... that's already suspicious.
