    That reminds me of what George Carlin used to say about "saving the earth".

    "We're not saving the earth, we're saving the people. The earth will just do fine; it's the people who are going away".

    Mister Hectic, I beg to differ -- and you all know I'm not the differ-begger I used to be -- but Eeyore's stick house was a casualty in the 1968 film Winnie The Pooh & The Blustery Day. I suppose you could say he technically didn't lose it, though. It was still there. It was just in pieces.

    If Mister Scotch lived in Poohville, I'd consider your argument.
    I've also seen pictures of his house, so I know it's still there.

    As such, your point is moot.

    My god, it's like Invasion of the Body Snatchers; everyone on DRC will be talking like this soon! :eek:

    Did I inadvertently start something here? At least I don't call any of those pod people "Mister Body Snatcher."

    As glaciers melt, cesium-137 and americium-241 will be released into lakes, rivers and oceans. Animals, when they drink water, will ingest the radioactive isotopes and the food chain will be poisoned. Lovely.

    The world's glaciers hold lots of nuclear fallout. Here's what might happen when they melt.
    New research finds high levels of radioactive particles frozen in the ice.

    How much nuclear wars have we had that we have all this fallout?

    The Cold War. We tested in and above the atmosphere.

    Those isotopes would have already gone everywhere not just the glaciers.

    Yes. But the ones trapped in glaciers will be released when they melt. That's the topic of the story.

    I fail to see what is special. The ones that did not hit the glacier have already been released.

    I don't think you understand how radioactive fallout works. Yes, some fallout is already in the food chain. That is bad. More will enter the food chain as glaciers melt. That is worse.

    It’s just a matter of degree. Any radiation is bad. Not sure there is a linear scale of badness.

    Now I know you don't know how radiation works. You are continuously bathed in radiation. That is not "bad". There is a scale of badness. This infographic should explain it all.

    I know I kinda make it a joke and play up how much I love various Scotch dash and pantry pics but when you post one, like this, it really does make me smile.

    Hopefully they can have a few volcanoes erupt so they can get some extra land.
