Nuclear Fission occurring in that thunderstorm over your head?
Yes, it is possible thanks to the Fukushima disaster.
One of the great unknowns out of the Fukushima nuclear disaster is the effect of the long term pumping of high atomic weight elements into the atmosphere. I have previously discussed one such large scale threat, the nuclear spallation of Fukushima fallout (both radioactive and non-radioactive) resulting from Earth directed Coronal Mass Ejections. But, there is another much closer and more frequent nuclear fission source in thunderstorms.
The lightening in thunderstorms actually produces potentially deadly levels of high energy gamma radiation, when that gamma radiation strikes higher atomic weight elements it will cause nuclear fission to occur. That photo-fission effect is not just limited to fissile materials. What makes the situation potentially more deadly is that the high atomic weight fallout from Fukushima may actually seed the formation of thunderstorms resulting in the creation of fresh radioactive materials from photofission. The strong correlation between the Fukushima disaster and the largest out break of thunderstorms / tornadoes in decades may be indicative of this affect.
The first indications of such nuclear fission occurring in the thunderstorms above our heads would be the detections of significant short half life radiation; much like the detection of radioactive fallout SIXTY-TWO TIMES greater than background radiation in the Saint Louis rainfall of 5/25/2011 seen in the videos below.
