Remember how animal repopulated the Chernobyl site after the reactor melted down and leaked? The same thing is happening at Fukashima in japan.

Fukushima contamination was very minor.

The Japanese reaction, an extreme overreaction. I'll have to hunt a little for the link but I read a very interesting article showing that far more people where killed in car crashes from the evacuation than would have died if they all stayed in place. (which would have been 0) and thousands are dying every year from their shift back to fossil fuels.

Either way, animals do better with a little radiation and no people than they do otherwise.

The media blew Fukushima up FAR worse than the nuke plant did.

This is very sensitive topic. You should understand that we are not told truth about such disasters.

I could tell more but it's better to read an original source. PM me if you want.

Video not what I expected. Thanks

Note statistics used but scientist were careful not to draw conclusion with small sample sizes. The 65% decline in radioactivity was a surprise and good news to me given only 60 months had passed.

Long term life of the wildlife might me expected but the lack of defects and continued flourishing is also encouraging.

Given this was a very bad tragedy it is encouraging to note it does not hint at the end of nature as we know it.

Most of the very bad tragedy was how the whole thing was reported, is still reported, and how people reacted to all of the BS pushed by the media.

The incident itself was just a disaster, and the man who sacrificed himself to check things out should never be considered a tragedy, though it was tragic.

I read most of the problem with Fukashima was the fallout escaping into the water. Not land based. *shrug*

Maybe it's like in the new Godzilla movie...everywhere the radiation goes, life BLOOMS up and incredibly quickly?

Some people claim that the Soviet Union failed because of the inaction and delays getting people out and the truth of what happened revealed the lies. In college I did a directed study in radio-chemistry.

I tell the no nukes folks that radioactivity existed before we learned to split atoms. At the INEL (largest concentration of reactors on the planet) EBR-2 which I think is still operational, they have to keep the back up coal pile outside the fence or it sets of the rad alarms.

When Cher blew, the boys at the INEL were one of the first to state there was a reactor issue somewhere in the world - due to their high tech monitoring.

Some of the 3 mile island core is buried on the site. When they were looking to get the state permit for that specific location my buddy and I had some questions. They checked into the answers and moved then scheduled the re-containerization of the stuff like 20 years sooner than expected. Good for them for checking and doing something about it. I could tell you lots of stories about that place - but they would likely try and kill me again.

Whoever told you that is full of it. It would have been weeks before fallout from Chernobyl reached Idaho. Iíll try running a simulation later to see how long it takes.

Our ICBM launch detection satellites picked up the explosion, which is how we found out about it. But as far as fallout detection, Sweden was the first non-Soviet country to sniff it out. They originally thought it was a problem with one of their plants because workers coming *into* their plants triggered a contamination alert.
