The Dangers of Nuclear Spent Fuel and Transatlantic Flights

 

Waste-vs-flight

Look at these poor people, dying in agony as the plutonium in the spent fuel surrounding them irradiates them and turns them into… oh, wait.

As you can see, they are not dying.  In fact, I’m in contact with several of them who tell me that after 4 years now, the entire original group is still alive and quite cancer free.

When you do the math, you discover in fact that a transatlantic flight exposes you to more radiation than you would get from spending some time next to some spent fuel casks.  (see the meme text above for details).
