Accumulation of Sellafield-derived Radioactive Carbon (14C) in Irish Sea and West of Scotland Intertidal Shells and Sediments

Wait until you see the levels radiation that’s being put out into the North Sea and the surrounding area and continents like Scotland Norway Finland Netherlands you won’t believe it and they’re discharging by pipeline and by venting directly into the North Sea with trivial or inadequate processing and have been doing that for 30 years or more.. Haha still want to take that vacation to Western Europe or Scandinavia have fun with that one.. Avoid the seafood while you’re there if you know what’s good for you.

Anyone who was a serious student of biological sciences is immediately alarmed to learn that nuclear reactors routinely emit radioactive carbon (14C) and radioactive hydrogen (tritium) into the environment. Carbon and hydrogen are the very foundations of life. And, most of the human body is comprised of water (H2O). Tritium makes tritiated water. Radioactive carbon (14C) has a half-life of over five thousand years (5,730 years). Even tritium, with a half-life of 12 years, will be in the environment for almost 200 years.

Carbon forms the key component for all known life on Earth. Complex molecules are made up of carbon bonded with other elements, especially oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen, and carbon is able to bond with all of these because of its four valence electrons.”

Carbon-14 is formed in the fuel (UO2), in core structural materials, and in the cooling water of LWRs”…
