people chose to use that power for their comfort and joyous madness running their new tech toys

they chose to be oblivious to it's destructive forces
people wanted their toys
without thought to consequences

Truer words were never spoken, they WERE the kings of toys.

Regarding the telling of adults what they so desperately needed to hear, I too was the master of that, brother 37.gif lmao..

I wasn't the most popular kid to have around at parties. coffeetime.gif ahem.

Turns out radiation is not all that bad after all :whew:


Fear of Japan's nuclear crisis far exceeds actual risks, say scientists

Pop culture has long helped fuel an irrational fear of radiation, and dire warnings about Japan's embattled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant are likely overblown, scientists say.

Fukushima is not Chernobyl, scientists repeat, and even Chernobyl was not as deadly as popularly believed.


Dire warnings of radiation spreading from Japan's embattled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to deadly effect across Japan, or even to California, are likely overblown, they say.

Radiation is all around us, varying with the number of miles we fly, the elevation of our towns, and the minerals in our environments, scientists point out. We live with it, and most of the time it is harmless.

Can you believe that shït? batboy.jpg It's getting even more frightening when msm is trying to downplay this

Was the CSMonitor that carefully explained how the walls of the reactor were what exploded, not the reactor itself

Obviously the walls are the least dangerous and most likely to vaporize technology on those plants.

This isn't rocket science.

Quote:Difficult to predict extent of Japan nuclear crisis – expert



Japan’s nuclear crisis has the potential of turning into a major disaster, with radioactivity spreading for thousands of kilometres if the sealed vessels housing the reactors break, according to a nuclear expert.

“If the reactors continue to heat up and the nuclear reactor vessels are breached because of melting or because of an explosion, then the situation might be disastrous,” Nicholas Sammut, chairman of the Malta Council for Science and Technology and a former research engineer at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research told The Times.

In the worst case scenario, he added, the radioactivity could spread for thousands of kilometres affecting people, livestock and food.
“It all depends on if and how the situation escalates but it is very difficult to predict the extent of the impact,” he said.
The situation remained tenuous yesterday as Japan struggled to contain a nuclear crisis sparked by a massive earthquake and tsunami that struck the north east of the island last week. Workers returned to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant after evacuating the facility when radiation levels soared after an explosion in the fourth reactor on Tuesday.

The flow of information has been tightened coming out of Japan. From what can be put together from a variety of sources, here is the latest:

A breaking news headline from kyodo states:
Quote:"BREAKING NEWS: Japan's nuke safety agency raised accident seriousness level to 5 from 4"

Quote:"The unfolding disaster at the Fukushima nuclear plant follows decades of falsified safety reports, fatal accidents and underestimated earthquake risk in Japan’s atomic power industry.

Japan weighs need to bury nuclear plant

Japanese engineers conceded on Friday that burying a crippled nuclear plant in sand and concrete may be a last resort to prevent a catastrophic radiation release, the method used to seal huge leakages from Chernobyl in 1986.

But they still hoped to solve the crisis by fixing a power cable to at least two reactors to restart water pumps needed to cool overheating nuclear fuel rods. Workers also sprayed water on the No.3 reactor, the most critical of the plant's six.

It was the first time the facility operator had acknowledged burying the sprawling complex was possible, a sign that piecemeal actions such as dumping water from military helicopters or scrambling to restart cooling pumps may not work.

"It is not impossible to encase the reactors in concrete. But our priority right now is to try and cool them down first," an official from the plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co, told a news conference.

An airborne plume of radiation is expected to hit America's western seaboard today before swept towards Europe. However, officials have stressed that the levels will not be high enough to pose any risk to human health.
Lars-Erik De Geer of the Swedish Defence Research Institute, said particles would eventually be detected across Europe.
'It is not something you see normally,' he said. 'But it is not high from any danger point of view. It is only a question of very, very low activities so it is nothing for people to worry about.'
The prediction that particles could reach Britain within two weeks is based on previous data, gathered by scientists observing nuclear testing in China.

They have really clamped down on the flow of information which tells me things are deteriorating quickly.
