Global Glowing

Susanne Gerber

20.10.2011

Because all the world’s oceans are connected, TEPCO’s irradiated waters eventually will mix with the plastics in the Pacific Garbage Patch and the oil that still seeps from the Gulf of Mexico. Nuclear mishaps, minor and major, can create deadly legacies that outlive even the great-great-grandchildren of the engineers that designed the plants. Our short-term failings now have long-term consequences. Each year, our planet grows increasingly more radioactive. Global Warming’s new companion is Global Glowing. If 350ppm is the maximum sustainable concentration of atmospheric CO2, what is the „tipping point“ for radioactive isotopes? Hot particles released at Chernobyl are still being detected on radiation monitors around the world and 200 years from now, the same will still be true of the isotopes escaping from Fukushima.
