“Large-scale breakdown of the protective ozone layer in the stratosphere was initiated in 1958 by high atmosphere bomb tests, and continues due to releases from power plants and reprocessing plants. Radioactive Krypton-85 goes to the stratosphere where it greatly enhances CFC ozone damage.” http://ratical.org/radiation/HoLLR.html#p5
LOSS OF OXYGEN GLOBALLY:
“The percentage of oxygen in the air is down to about 19 percent. The expected amount is 21 percent of oxygen. Oxygen is formed by trees and plankton. Trees and plankton are killed by radiation.” http://ratical.org/radiation/HoLLR.html#p4
“Trees and green plants provide about half, and plankton provide the other half of our oxygen. Phytoplankton, which are the base of the marine food chain, is declining. Various studies confirm this: plankton in parts of the Antarctic Ocean is declining up to 12 percent.”
“The nuclear industry is responsible for the ozone hole. Radioactive gases like Krypton-85 appear in increasing amounts due to the bomb tests, releases and accidents at nuclear reactors and especially from the nuclear fuel recycling plants. Krypton-85 goes up to the stratosphere where it creates ice crystals which catalytically enhance the destruction of ozone by the fluorhydrocarbons.”
This is why are people so irritated, the surface ozone, less oxygen, uvb radiation…

Sellafield Cesium 137 simulation
1998, two dead pigeons from Sellafield, UK Nuclear holocaust plant: Per Kg Pigeon feathers: 246,000 Bq Cesium 137, 26,000 Bq Plutonium 239, 18,500 Bq Americium 241, also Rhutenium 106, Europium 154, and Cer 144. Says Prof. Dr. Kirchner, Germany: http://www.castor.de/diskus/sonst/sellafieldtauben.html
-> 26,000 bq Pu239 = 0,000011 g Plutonium 239!

Computer simulation: assuming a continuous release of Cesium 137 of 1,000,000,000,000 Bq TBq per year from radioactive waste from Novaya Zemlya (Russia) http://www.bsh.de/de/Meeresdaten/Beobachtungen/Radioaktivitaet/Kara-See/Animation_Kara.jsp

Total release of Fukushima reactor One: 40,000 trilltion becquerel – 70% went into sea: http://ajw.asahi.com/article/0311disaster/fukushima/AJ201202290025
47 quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 released into Pacific from Fukushima — Nearly 50 times original Tepco estimate: http://www.biogeosciences-discuss.net/10/4127/2013/bgd-10-4127-2013.html
Plankton takes in 200,000th of a radioactive substance:
“If the cesium in the fresh water happens to be radioactive cesium-137, from a nuclear reactor or other source, then the fish will contain 1000 times more cesium-137 than the fresh water itself, on a weight-for-weight basis.” Source: http://www.ratical.org/radiation/CNR/PP/chp2.html
“The dangerous thing about the water contamination is that the food chains are much longer there than on land. Among the many steps in the water to accumulate more and more radioactive substances in the organisms. This means that contamination in fish at the end of the food chain is much higher than the water in which they swim” / Radiophobia: “government calls the fears of the people “radiation phobia” = unfounded anxiety before radioactivity. Everyone should just be pretty happy, then they would not get sick. Only sad people would get radiation sickness.” / “The special radiation sensitivity of children is yet not considered.” / “the snow melt began in the mountains. “In the forested mountains the radioactive clouds are stuck, which now come in small streams running down again and causes the rivers to be charged more radioactive” … http://www.n-tv.de/politik/Fukushima-ist-nicht-ueberstanden-article5731966.html
Cesium 137 activity is 200,000 times higher back waters (!) than before Chernobyl:
Tokyo University of Marine Science,”8,000,000,000 ~ 93,000,000,000 Bq of Cs-137 can leak to the sea every single day”: http://fukushima-diary.com/2013/03/tokyo-university-of-marine-science-8000000000-93000000000-bq-of-cs-137-can-leak-to-the-sea-every-single-day/
= up tp 0,03 g Cesium 137 PER DAY!
