Interesting try. But I suspect there is a safe soot dose too. I also suspect that in MANY places we are WAY above that safe limit. With radiation, there are only a very few places that approach the limit, Ramsar Iran, the plant and miscellaneous hotspots near Chernobyl and Fukushima. A few others. Fukushima prefecture as a whole is NOT among them.

Then again, I am in Ontario which gets all the crappy coal emissions from all the obsolete and dirty coal power in the Mississippi valley. We stopped using coal here and still have particulate pollution from elsewhere.

The United States and other countries opposed the admission of the PRC in the UN, and the ROC, now based in Taiwan, kept its membership of the UN until October 25, 1971.

Could be. Almost certainly all of Europe down-wind of Germany. France maybe not so much. Almost ALL of China and India.

I truly am jealous of Ontario. I follow the Ontarians for Nuclear Energy page on FaceBook. 55% from nuclear and almost all the rest from hydro. Ontario Rocks! Too bad about the [email protected] coming up from the Mississippi (mainly Ohio?) valley.

Hey lite on brains and space cadet the PRC and ROC are political parties not China itself. China has always been a member of the UN since 1945. In 1971 PRC was officially recognized as the official government at the objection of the US because of the communist ties they had with North Vietnam. You two probably weren't alive at the time and if you were how old were you?
Let us remember the original issue stated by space cadet was that china was denied membership because of the china syndrome.
You guys are a couple of revisionists and I am done with you, have a nice life in lala land.

Relations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union (later Russia) within the UN have evolved in step with the larger geopolitical situation between the two powers. While the Soviet Union was boycotting the Security Council and China's seat was represented by U.S.-friendly Republic of China (instead of the communist People's Republic of China which would replace the ROC in the UN in 1971), the U.S. and UN jointly condemned the invasion of South Korea by North Korean troops, leading to the UN sanctioned Korean War. Later, the U.S. persuaded all permanent members of the Security Council to authorize force against Iraq after that nation invaded Kuwait in 1991. This was a major step toward U.S. and Russian reconciliation after the end of the Cold War.

No problem
Go back and look at posts 147 and 151-161 and specifically 152 were you state

"I disagree with you. How else a movie was named the same?

Because the whole nuclear safety community referred to it as a possibility at a time China was denied UN membership, etc. and the Three Mile Island core melt.

Changing history does not help this industry with its faults and successes."
Look at the middle sentence why would you write this about the PRC and recognition opposition by the UN? what does the use of the words China Syndrome have to do with the PRC being recognized as China's official government and the US objections to same. Your problem is you spout so much garbage that you can't remember what you say. That is the easy way to spot a LIAR. You are out of your league so why don't you go post on a Muppets blog it is a little above your IQ but certainly more appropriate than this one.

With the nation's only permanent nuclear waste dump shuttered indefinitely by back-to-back accidents, officials are making plans to ship radioactive waste from Los Alamos National Laboratory to rural West Texas.

The Department of Energy and the operator of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant near Carlsbad in southeastern New Mexico say they have signed an agreement with Waste Control Specialists to truck the waste to its site in Andrews County.

The agreement will help Los Alamos meet a June deadline for getting the last of thousands of barrels of plutonium-contaminated clothing, tools, rags and other debris off its northern New Mexico campus before wildfire season hits its peak.

The waste, which is shipped and stored in huge sealed canisters, would come back to New Mexico for final disposal once the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant reopens.

"We are pleased that WCS is in a position to provide temporary storage for this waste while the WIPP is shutdown," said Waste Control Specialists President Rod Baltzer. "This will allow the Los Alamos National Laboratory to meet its goal of having this material removed by this summer so it can no longer be threatened by wildfires. WCS has never had a wildfire because all surrounding areas are covered with asphalt and caliche roadways. In addition, the waste will be in storage facilities that have sprinkler system, and in the event of an emergency, WCS has its own fire truck on site."[abcnews]
