Lol. Love the theory, but not in this case. Radiation doesn't have anything to do with currents. That's geology and the moon plus temp. How do I know you ask? That's what I do for a living. I'm a health physics technologist. And the amount of rad material dumped into the ocean is definitely a concern for Japans coast, but Hawaii does more ecological damage with its naturally growing mountains.
The amount of rad material in all of the worlds nuke plants including the military and scientific communities could empty into the waters and it might have a significant impact on the part of the Pacific that collects all the floating garbage that people toss overboard.
Buy an almanac if you don't believe me. The earth goes through this stuff every 100 years or so and then a big one every 10,000 or so.
Nat, not telling you that you are full of it. I know a ludicrous amount about unstable atoms and their decay methods.
if you were goofing, I laughed, if not, hope you see this as an opportunity to learn. After all, you've taught me a few things on here too.
Sorry, back to the topic. I hate snow period! It makes people drive stupid, and keeps the kids home when I want to sleep in!!!!
