If there is a meltdown, which I hope there isn't, wouldn't it be more prudent to watch weather patterns and wind currents to see where it most likely will be taken, rather than just show a map showing it all floating over the pacific to the United States? China has a huge population, the most dense on earth, and is right next to Japan. I would be more worried for those in the immediate vicinity, and the billions of Chinese living next to them.


Its no longer an if my friend. #1 is in meltdown. #2 very likely to follow(thats my opinion). You can bet the different nuclaar safety agencies are going to be on this as fast as possible.

Good morning all....I hoped to be waking up to some good news but inside I knew we would be at this point this morning, Well done and a huge THANKS ! to everyone who was on the night shift. I guess we now need to get working on time schedules of affect and weather for our own countries.

Respects and may your own god go with you.

On live news feeds from Japan, they are actually saying 1070 microsevierts. It is beyond bad.

A light water reactor explosion will have an impact more like what happened at three mile island, rather than the Chernobyl incident, according to an expert on Sky news.
Seems very different to that.

It's the real deal. Wonder why Youtube removed it? Are they part of the Governments policy of keeping the public numb to danger...

Move along people there's nothing to see here...


edit on 3/12/2011 by Brainiac because: Explosion was real. Japan in more trouble.

TO sum things up:
-Jiji news agency said there had been an explosion at the stricken 40-year-old Daichi 1 reactor and TV footage showed vapour rising from the plant, which lies 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo(which we have confirmed with video)

-Ceiling and walls of #1 reactor caved in
-Radiation leak confirmed
-Japan Chief Cabinet Secretary Edano: expands evacuation area at no.2 plant to 10 km, and its looking grim

Considering one microsievert is 0.000001 sieverts, that's not anything to panic about just yet.


No radiation leak is good, of course, but if it stays at around that level, that's nothing to overly worry about.

Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency is investigating the explosion at the Fukushima-Daiichi plant. Meanwhile, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yuko Edano, has told journalists: "As to the evacuation of the residents, of course we will have to ascertain the level of the radiation and, of course, we will have to cope and take appropriate measures. But once we do the analysing and once we know the facts we will let you know."


That sounds like an official confirmation to me.

Worst part is when I came into work on wed night there was a newly posted "Fallout Shelter" sign in the NOC (with an occupancy of 1). Its crazy on an unsurreal level.

Is anyone posting the updated links and stuff anywhere? Any new aftershocks or quakes or tsunamis? I have close friends over there and they were fine yesterday but they are in okinawa. Any one have any updated from there?
