Radioactivity is everywhere, including us humans. So technically, even our smiling faces spread ionizing radioactivity to the surroundings. Our bodies are radioactive because of radioactive isotopes we get for example from our food and drink. But how radioactive are we? Where does our daily radioactive dose come from?

The fuel used in a nuclear power plant is uranium, which is extracted from the ground. While the impact of uranium quarrying operations on the environment regularly evokes discussion, it is less often noted that since uranium has a very high energy density, the required amount of uranium to be quarried is quite small. Consequently, the impact of the associated operations remains small as well.

Climate change has become part of mainstream discourse in Finland. Markku Ollikainen believes that the Finnish Climate Change Panel, which he chairs, has played a role in this. The changes in the public discourse are taking place quickly, but so are the changes in the climate.

We all are stars of yesterday. You and me both are made of matter that was created in ancient stars and supernovas. Carbon, and all heavier atoms, were created in these explosions which also spread them around the universe. Uranium, the mineral used as fuel in nuclear power reactors, is one of these.
