I would like to roll back my personal attack as you seem to have rolled back your........well, I can't say what I am thinking without negating this statement.
For future clarity, could you just tell us which of these were drunk posts by you, and which were written at the behest of COREporate kiteboarding and/or just heartfelt (semi) retractions in an attempt to gain a clear conscience.

I haven't been to Japan in ages, nor the West Coast of the US since 2014 and I had no Pacific plans in the immediate future even though SWMBO wants to revisit Hawaii. So I started a bit of googling it being Xmas, no wind and I was bored. The first thing that sprang up ironically was the Irish Sea where I'd just been two weeks earlier on a kite demo, so that went down well, but back to the picture. I thought it gave an overly dramatic view, but is quite eye catching and serves its purpose which was to attempt to tease out some facts. Lots of folk on this forum are quite clever and some a hell of a lot better informed than me and lets face it we all have a vested interest in keeping our playground as clean and as pleasant as possible.
Most of my research just revealed conspiracy theory type stuff, the Israelis destroying the place because it supplied enriched uranium to Iran I thought was the classic..
But seriously I've been around a while, and cancer levels seem to be at an all time high, the number of friends and acquaintances that have departed this mortal coil recently ex windsurfers mostly is upsetting, and in other walks of life also. So things like this do tend to enrage and if there seems to be even a hint of a cover up then it makes it worse and the world seems to have stopped talking about Fukushima yet it's still going on.
I know the half life of seizium 134 is only what two years and the levels of 137 are not yet that great, but Trinium? We don't seem to know much about its long term affects and I think as kitesurfers we should be talking about it without becoming too irrational, so yes I used that pic, but I did point out it wasn't what it seems at first and I'm hoping someone else might bring us something more accurate, more to support the argument that we should be concerned, rather than the opposite. However if the opposite is true, then it's a win win thread, either way worth a discussion.
That's what forums do.

I live and ride in the shadow of Dungeness A and B and if in your peurile halfwitted mind you thought this was an attack on the US, you're sadly mistaken, I have many friends who ride in Oregon, Pistol River etc You think I take joy from all this? You really are a sad helpless troll.
The Irish sea is one of the most radioactive, but they stopped doing that, public pressure stopped it. There have even been attempts to clean it up albeit too little to late, what I don't see is anything like enough urgency or pressure being applied to Japan to get a move on in shutting it all down.
Oh and try a bit harder with the spelling eh? It's Captain and should be followed by Sir.

Here in Europe we're still suffering the increased Cancer rates from Chernobyl, I hate to ruin your day but Fukushima has kicked out 100 times what Chernobyl did and they still haven't even got a lid on it so they can start to remove the fuel rods..
Eating a banana FFS -really.
A. seems very much heartfelt and sober, though your spelling may indicate some shakiness that could be remedied by 1 drink - no more - to steady your hands. You also seem to be highlighting that you knew it was a conspiracy (or just BS) theory from the beginning. So for that I am at somewhat of a loss for words. Could you just clarify that you were in fact citing conspiracy/fake news to possibly ask the question as to whether US west coast kiters were actually feeling the effects of the radiation?
B. & C. were, in my opinion, drunk posts to which COREporate kiteboarding has instructed you to make an attempt at making amends for.
