"I caught Kenny boy testing plankton, and not reporting results"
Interesting and something I'll personally look into…
Let's face it Ken is the head and is a mouthpiece, he is not the one that actually does the testing.
Gathering samples, transporting them and the many stages of testing things as complicated (and hard to read) as foods and water for individual isotopes requires 100's of people.
If you look at the sea reads they are on point. problem seems to be noone can understand the results so sea water results are posted without worry.
Foods like kelp and plankton are a no brainer. If there is any AT ALL in it it's a problem. Easy to understand right?
Any levels could ruin a global industry. I think we should ALL be able to view and know the results. But this creates a problem, a world wide problem. So the results must be tested again and again with the same result for a no holds barred release of information.
We know in our knowers (those that have actually been studying this stuff) That certain isotopes decay and change the overall readings over time so this creates a lawyers dream for not releasing the results. They can argue to the cows come home that the results don't show the same levels and therefore can not be accurate. So the argument is since the tests are not showing the same results when repeated they must be flawed.
Simple argument for a food lawyer to block the public release of results.
Doubt is why we can't see the results to begin with…
It would be if any of that was true.
But I think you know what I was saying.
Support those that test like woods hole!
A very complicated process (testing water and food) that you can't possibly do.
I have no personal opinion on Ken. Infact I don't even pay attention to him, I pay attention to the results of the testing at WH.
The numbers aren't a political he said she said debate.
The numbers are not subject to your opinion or what he said or what she said. They aren't up for debate or assumption nor are test results subject your need to talk bad about someone or something.
The results are the results and if we want to see more of them we need to support the testing and disclosure whole heartily.
NEVER casting doubt on the testing, only doubt on the nay sayers that make it harder still to get the actual results by reinforcing doubt in the accuracy or spouting that the most poison substances on earth are not a problem…
Cry like a spoiled brat or be a responsible adult…
After all it's only the future of the planet we are dealing with…
