Yup, they report it then down play it
Quote:"iodine 131 detected in air samples was "minuscule" and there was "no public health risk in the UK"."
Sorry, but any amount of iodine 131 is not exactly going to have health benefits.

The question is, what are they going to do with them? Are they going to just leave them? Are they going to try to encase them and seal them up? Are they going to try to dismantle them and "dispose" of the scraps?

Yup, a million lingering questions. They were talking about disposing of the radioactive water, but how and where? Rockets? 13.gif they have to cool it down before encasing them in concrete, and that still means a Chernobyl like dead zone for god knows how many kilometers around the plant.
If not the entire island.

High radiation outside Japan exclusion zone: IAEA


(Reuters) - Radiation measured at a village 40 km from Japan's crippled nuclear plant exceeded a criterion for evacuation, the U.N. nuclear watchdog said on Wednesday, the latest sign of widening consequences from the crisis.

Read it at reuters.com

The radiation spread has now 'officially' commenced. Stay calm everyone. lemur.png

Evacuees turned away from shelters

Hundreds of people evacuated from towns and villages close to the stricken Fukushima nuclear plant are being turned away by medical institutions and emergency shelters as fears of radioactive contagion catch on.

Here's a good vid and some clear answers



Says there are 7 milion people within a 200 mile radius of the reactors. Also, that they've been in meltdown since the explosions over a week ago. Goes into some detail on the extent of the cover-ups.

And what's all the shït about "We need cheap energy" ? You need some energy yes, to get to work and run plants and computers, farming, but people consume WAY!!! more than they need to. We don't need neon lights or steet lights or A/C 24/7 unless you're vulnerable. ƒück 3 billion people live with no energy at all (never mind A/C) on the hot latitudes, wtf is this "we need"? My house uses about $25/mnth of electricity, that includes a hot water heater. I hang laundry, I open the doors early in the morning to cool the house in summer, I don't have a dish washer. ƒück I grew up without electricity, we never had that until I was 18! Need. pfft. What we need is to get off our asses and spend some calories.

Octo and I have a real green footprint as well, we gave up our car which we never used anyway because we walk everywhere we go. We spend the entire summer at the cabin with no electricity.
We could easily go off the grid or even vanish and live off the land but all thats out the window on an irradiated planet. sad2.gif
