Insightful? Informative? Underrated? Anyone?
I don't have mod points today, so I'll guess I'll have to go with.... 'Anyone'?
Srsly though, the dude is right.
What do you mean by ITER having a good head start? ITER is still a giant construction site! Here's what ITER currently looks like. Yes, it's that hole in the ground.
I meant that ITER the project was initiated in 1988, thus giving them a good head start. I didn't say that they were still ahead.
Not quite, the whole system it actually consumed more than it produced. The power outputted by the lasers was less than was produced. There are inefficiencies in the lasers so net power is negative.
Yes and in an future power producing environment, the thermal power output needs to be converted to electricity. Typical thermal power systems does this with an efficiency of about 33-48%, so there is still a way to go. Still they are making fast progress compared to ITER, which have had a good head start.
That you give us actual fucking measurement numbers in millisievert per unit of time instead of scaremongering with ambigious definitions.
If I were 74 years old and my home had an annual 5mSv radiation dose(technically in excess of 2x civilian limits). I would live there, whole fucking year. And if I die of cancer, I'd have done so anyway.
Well the city of Namie (within the 10km radius) that is mentioned in the story, was sort of lucky and didn't get all that much fallout and has something like the 5mSv of a yearly dose rate like you mention. But it i surrounded by other communities that has more than 10-20 times higher dose rates, even though some of them are further out in the 20-30 km radius. There is no scaremongering, just reporting on a serious situation. Also I don't think a 74 year old woman is likely to do very well in a community that has no services, and where everything is shut down.
Can you cite an example of "lots of radioactive steel parts" becoming cars?
Not in the US, and not cars but here are references to elevator buttons http://uk.reuters.com/article/2008/10/22/oukoe-uk-france-lifts-radioactive-idUKTRE49L69320081022 And belt buckles. http://www.slate.com/blogs/future_tense/2013/05/29/asos_investigation_into_radioactive_belts_demonstrates_scrap_metal_problem.html Bonus link to the EPA http://www.epa.gov/radtown/orphan-sources.html
Why not fit cars with a voluntary limiter that users can enable themselves?
You mean, like a brake?

Is this the end shitty cell phone batteries?
end *to*, dammit!
I cannot see the big scent manufacturers liking this one.
Get ready for the Digital Smellenium Act.

Fixed that for ya.
Nah, I think it is supposed to be
