    I just finished watching NHK World News on PBS to see if there was mention of radioactivity levels or a report re: the status of the storm and the plant…and (of course)there was nothing.

      Hey flatsville…I was naively, hopefully pulled into the same wish for info which was not forthcoming! Quit wasting our time, you MS media bowers, blowers, and lickers.

    Seems people could be bathed in it, and not even know it.

      Well so long as it is not taken internally it is not as bad but if people are living there then they have already.

      • MaidenHeaven MaidenHeaven

        They will be taking it internally when they eat or drink. It will be falling on water sources as well.

      "Seems people could be bathed in it, and not even know it."

      Let's expand on this notion Thom. We don't even know "it" because we totally don't feel ration because we so didn't evolve with ration beyond backgrond levels. Sadly the idea of evolutions is arguably the most tragic victim of the so called culture war. In the on going effort to divide and rule is not a rejection of evolution the ulitmate division, divorcing us from the rest of nature? perhaps

      Though not my favorite author(on scientific subects) Stephan Jay Gould's reflections on biology is worth the time reading.

      What are my favs you ask? Heinz Pagels "the Cosmic Code" and of course Carl Sagen "Dragons of Eden".

        Nuke power plants cause genetic decay, even when operating normally, with extra still births, deformities, cancers and general genetic damage downwind of them. Unfortunately we are "devolving" not evolving. Mutations are a loss of genetic information. Nuclear power is incompatible with life. We are indeed all under the bondage of decay and exposure to radiation damages the genome. Its the dirty little secret of population genetics that mutations are accumulating and eventually will end all life. Most mutations are too small for natural selection to weed. They just build up as genetic load. Collectively however, they will eventually render all life extinct. In that sense, nuclear power brings all life closer to extinction. Genetic Entropy & the Mystery of the Genome (9780981631608): John C Sanford: Books

        Nuclear power stations release enough radioactive gas in normal operation to cause an increase in the mutation rate around the world and a dramatic increase nearby. Natural selection only catches a portion of the genetic damage done to each generation. It slows decay down and is doing a vital job, but it does not even come close to stopping it. The genome is decaying and nuclear power accelerates that process. The genome started out complex, and is breaking down with each generation. Once that is grasped, then there can be no room for nuclear power. It brings us all closer to extinction.

    SFP4 would not just be a spike!

    • Anthony Anthony

      Agreed ….. unless it was toppled last year like suggested…. even still, I agree it would probably be a lot higher.

  • After watching the video: The winds seem to move up from the south then primarily west to east across the island blowing 'Fukugoo' out to sea is how it looks to me.

    So WHY would the levels spike in Tokyo?

    • Fall out man!

      Perhaps fallout already on the land and in forests is being re-aerosolized and spread around again. Fukushima has already contaminated so much land that when a storm occurs the fallout no longer needs to come direct from the plant.

      Of course, there are other plants that have very likely melted down too. So its not just Fukushima Tokyo needs to worry about. Its just that Fukushima Daichi is all the media has focused on. Remember that a spent fuel reprocessing facility in Tokyo caught fire after the Tsunami as well. Also, 14 other plants officially had "problems". The Japanese also shut down every plant in the country. It would not surprise me if more than just 14 had "problems". Otherwise they would have had those plants online again and making money so fast that the public would have had no time to protest about it.
