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.

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.
