    Cue the Godzilla music…

    They always talk about “low levels” of contamination. The chemical analysis (done by TEPCO…) has not yet turned up really nasty stuff, like Pu-239. But St-90, Cs-134 and -137 are no picnic either. It all accumulates. Yes, the Pacific is vast, but still… I bought a Geiger-counter three month before the accident. I have started to monitor my food, especially fish and rice. Fukushima will become to Japan what Hitler is to Germany – long gone but never forgotten…

    This is a big disaster. The half-life on anything nuclear is terrible. meanwhile the people eat radiated food and mutations start running rampant if they haven’t already.
    I saw on you-tube some of the people from near chernobyl and it was frightening.

    The Bikini Atoll has recovered from bomb testing in the mid twentieth century.
    Maybe Japan will recover, too.

    Just pray for a solution. It’s as much of a plan as they have.

    Who knew that Godzilla and Mothra would turn out to be predictions?

    Before I moved to Sacramento, it pleased me that SMUD shut down nuclear power plants.

    Now if they could exchange the half life of radioactive stuff with the shelf life of strawberries and raspberries, I’d be happy.

    How well does our nuclear emergency response capabilities compare with theirs?
    -
    I hope it’s a helluva lot better than our oil spill response capabilities.
    -
    Maybe the Japanese neglected the essential media blitz process.

    ^^Irradiated milk, strawberries, raspberries, last dang near forever, and it’s become common around the world! Yes, food preservation has “advanced”!(?)

    The upgrades to Rancho Seco cost over $400 million. And what did the rates payers get for their investment? 550 Megawatts taken off the grid for no good reason. No wonder California is broke and their electrical grid has brownouts.

    you do realize that it will register you glow in the dark watch and a tube tv if you still have one and then there is all that sunlight

    no they got and are still getting the full blitz. 80% of the early reports and predictions were wrong. in the end, even with this current hysteria it will end up some worse the three mile island(which is to say zero problem) and much better then Cernobyl (middling bad)

    Fun fact. While spent fuel is radioactive, it is mostly from having concentrated what is normally spread very thin, there is uranium, plutonium, cesium essentially in atomic portions of all rocks.

    The small amount released into the ocean will be excessive in nearby area, However spread across the pacific it is highly unlikely
