Gundersen: There’s some good science out about rapid mutations in insects.
Insects are relatively radiation resistant compared to human beings.
So, yeah, it is frightening.
And of course, if it’s in the human gene poll, it will be 2 or 3 generations before it completely manifests itself.
The butterflies already have a couple generations and already it’s starting to manifest itself.
So we won’t see the results on the human gene pool for 30, 60, or 90 years…
In fact it’s a very real, terrible consequence.
