This could get really bad! Anyone know how far this radition could spread?

Well, Chernobyl is on the far Western border of Russia, and the winds and jet streams tend to carry thing East, so Russia and China should get the brunt of this assuming it is even picked up by wind currents and carried any significant distance.

Now this! Pray for Russia -- the wildfires there are super-massive & just incredible! Pray for all of us. It's bad enough if the fires burn radioactive contaminated trees & buildings, but if they reach the decaying sarcophagus containing Reactor #4 -- this has the potential of destroying, not only Russia, but Western Europe. And there's no way to contain the fallout from hitting anywhere in the world. We're talking endgame scenario.

mm... little off topic, but I'm wondering why all the disasters and bad things happen to New York in all movies... and well.. real life! Is it a self created prophecy or prediction!

Because no matter where you are in the World, everyone knows of New York.

People tend to understand its size and population, so depicting the destruction of New York or the possible destruction gives the mind an indication of how powerful the evil must be to do it.

Mind games at their best, have you also noticed how the good guy does not always win any more? up until recently well maybe 10 years ago, it was always prevented at the last moment by an all American hero, more recently we have had the movies showing the good guys being too late.

Unthinkable being the most recent, A MIND BLOWING MOVIE, which shows us how far any of us would go to stop something like nuclear terrorism, in a way its sick, but full of truths about us as individuals, and so surprising it was not a box office hit.

Thanks very much for the info - that gives me a better understanding.

well just to clarify...if you would read from the source i posted

The radiation, according to the newspaper, comes from facilities for the production of atomic bombs (400 km east of Moscow) burning in Sarov. Emission of radiation in the environment continues.

On the territory "of the atomic research center," as this plant is officially called, two fires are still raging, the newspaper writes. Russians cannot conceal facts, since fires are perfectly visible from satellites

the radiation can be picked up from the soild from the Chernobyl fallout throught the convention currents created by the fires but there are other sources for the radiation also.

that is a more corcerning the chernobyl fallout will have lower counts as radioactive half lifes are involved.

the worse part is when this does happen there is fallout created because of all the ash being created from the fires themselves.

the question is what are other nations pledging to do to help and is Russia accepting help from other nations...does anyone know?

Just found this on the RSOE EDIS site:

"The wildfires threatening areas of Russia contaminated with radioactive waste do not currently pose a health hazard for the rest of Europe, experts at the German environment ministry said Wednesday. Russian authorities had warned that radioactive particles could be released into the air from fires burning in the Bryansk region, as well as in Chelyabinsk in the Ural mountains. However Germany and Western Europe are not under significant risk of dangerous radioactivity being borne on the wind from the wildfire regions, the Federal Office for Radiation Protection said. 'The fires have no radioactive significance for the rest of Europe, as the distribution of radioactive materials is limited to those regions,' a statement from the office said. It would be possible for radioactive particles to be carried on prevailing winds, as had been feared in western Europe and particularly Germany after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, the agency said. 'But in the case that noticeable amounts of radioactive material would be transported to Germany, their concentration would be of a harmless level,' the office said. The office maintains a network of radioactivity-measuring stations across the country."

Phew, I was generally getting worried.

"This could be really bad!"
"Pray for this pray for that...!"

Christ, there's no wonder people on here get accused of fear-mongering. Slow down and just use your brain, experience and common sense.
