    we die.

    A lot of people only seem to have a "how does this affect me??" view of things. You can see this in posts above and below yours. So they think "well i'll stop eating fish".. the danger isnt that Joe's fish nugget will be radioactive.

    The danger is far larger. Radical changes in the food supply can lead to war, massive ag changes that radically increase pollution. This will eliminate entire branchs of life on earth. And introduce radical genetic change across thousands or millions of species. And something ive tried to explain to both nuclear and gmo advocates.. genetic changes cross species. That means that some of those genetic changes may cross into the human genome.. and permanently. Even if no human were affected by the radiation (though we know they were and are.

    Humanity will blow this off and eventually erase this from memory while at the same time learning to accept it as "normal" sadly. Because that's what we do. And why were are in the growing crisis we are. i fear the world my niece will grow up to
