Judy, THANK YOU!  

 Not to discount the potential harm we humans are causing though (short term in 
the grand scheme of things), did you see this article that speaks to one man's 
narrative of his experience on an ocean sailing trip? I'm leaving for the ocean 
today for a week - the energy and spirit and beauty and power of the ocean 
lives on and nature will "heal" itself I do believe, whether we're here or not.

 First, these are by no means necessarily "signs that the west coast is being 
fried by radiation from Fukushimo [sic]." These are items the author of the 
post wants us to believe are signs that the west coast is being fried, etc. 
There's no evidence for a connection between many of them and Fukushima 
radiation; they're just various anomalies whose cause is unknown at present. 
And the items that report radiation measurements are meaningless unless we know 
to what degree such radiation levels might be harmful. In some of the cases the 
rise in levels is negligible because the normal levels are minuscule; and 
there's a great deal of controversy over how much radiation is actually harmful.

 Finally, it's important to know that the author of the post (who is not a 
scientist) just published an end-of-the-world conspiracy novel in May and is an 
evangelical Christian and a "prepper" who sells various survivalist supplies on 
his Web site. IOW, he has a financial interest in making people paranoid about 
government conspiracies and otherwise scaring them to death. It's not 
impossible that some of his 28 "signs" are legit and that they should worry 
us--but I'm certainly not going to take his word for it.

 (I just find it so amazing that folks read stuff like this article and 
automatically assume it's valid without ever thinking to do any investigation 
of the writer's credentials or possible conflicts of interest. The lack of 
common sense is simply mind-boggling to me.) 

 Finally, Share, do you know what a "bucket list" is? I'm not sure what you 
mean by it, but the way you use it above doesn't appear to have much to do with 
the actual definition.
