    Those so-called radiation meters are absolutely, pathetically, shamefully inadequate. There are alpha rays, beta rays, gamma rays, and close to 2,000 dangerous radioactive substances in the air, the soil, the water, the food, most of which the meters do NOT pick up. And what about the "hot" particles, like deadly bits of plutonium inhaled right into the lungs? And what about NO SAFE FOOD, yet the kids are forced to eat it anyway? What about TEPCO and the Japanese government having the decency and humanity to stop acting like mass murderers, and get those kids OUT of there!!

  • There was no mention of radiation or meltdowns.

    Anybody else notice that?

    Not a word about the largest man-made catastrophe in history happening at the Nuclear Power plant that continues to contaminate the ocean and the atmosphere on a global scale. Endangering children and future unborn generations.

    Here's my music contribution:

    It does not matter where you're from. Fukushima, and what it now represents, is not going to change anytime soon. :(

  • Indeed, we're probably all just over-reacting. It'll never happen again:

    Japan quake analysis points to larger tsunamis
    Friday, 8 February 2013Anna Salleh

    Scientists now understand why the 2011 Japanese tsunami was bigger than expected and say we need to prepare for larger tsunamis in the future.

    The warning comes following an analysis of the quake which caused the tsunami, reported today in the journal Science.

    "Japan did not expect a tsunami that size. The country had a tsunami defence system in place but because it didn't expect such large waves, the system was inadequate," says Dr Virginia Toy, a geologist at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand, who was involved in the study.

    "We now realise we've got to build systems that have greater capacity."

    To PU239: We are all probably just UNDER-reacting. What you say will "never happen again" is happening again and again and yet again every minute of the day, because they have not even a clue how to fix it and the radiation just keeps spewing out of there unabated. It's ongoing, cumulative, deadly, and speading. So the "never again" part of your comment is already "again" every minute of the day. The only appropriate reaction would be world-wide action to protect a planetary future IF POSSIBLE; and even that doesn't seem to be happening.
