To be honest we really have no idea. None of us really has a clue. We all have our different perceptions, all of which could be completely wrong, and we just have to hope for some type of relief at this stage. Resisting with effort getting wound up at your God/Japan comment because I just don't see the point, not sure it's worth it at all at this stage. Am just hoping we're about done with this whole nuclear problem now and can get on with getting aid to those people.

So if someone speaks the truth they are angry? Sheesh...

Back to topic. Yes Nuclear power is still be best option in the face of waning fossil fuels. This was a once in a 50 year quake and nothing bad is going to come out of this. Japan a few months ago planned on building more reactors.


that has nothing to do with this thread.......

As the scale of Japan’s nuclear crisis begins to come to light, experts in Japan and the United States say the country is now facing a cascade of accumulating problems that suggest that radioactive releases of steam from the crippled plants could go on for weeks or even months.

*SNIP*

In other news, Japan had an earthquake, and they are in deep trouble.
Both China and Russia have pledged assistance and solidarity with the Japanese, despite historically rocky relations.

TOKYO (Reuters) - U.S. warships and planes helping Japan's earthquake and tsunami relief efforts have moved away from the country's Pacific coast temporarily because of low-level radiation from a stricken nuclear power plant, the U.S. Navy said on Monday.

The U.S. Seventh Fleet, in a statement, described the move as precautionary measure.

God help those people...if they're moving the fleet, it must be worse than it is being trumpeted...

My heart goes out to the Japanese workers trying to get this reactor under control, and their families, and anyone exposed to radiation. Also, of course, this doesn't mean I have forgotten about the more immediate tragedy of the earthquake, the tsunami and the thousands, if not magnitudes more, of families who have lost loved ones.


Just a thought... the official reports are saying they HOPE the confinement is still intact... if there were workers inside would they not know?

They're downwind of reactor explosions. If the wind was blowing south then yeah, huge problem, but thank....whoever, that it's not. I don't see this as being a big problem. The thing I'm concerned about is radiation levels from here on out from Fukushima.

During the 2004 Tsunami there were sport divers under water when the Tsunami went over head... it disturbed them only enough to know something happened. Their dive boat rode over the wave. Its when the Tsunami breaks near land that it is most dangerous

I think it confirms at least one, and probably multiple reactor breaches...These ships are built for NBC operations, and it would seem that the 'danger' posed to the crew outweighs the humanitarian need.

Containment at reactor #3 blows, fleet moves shortly thereafter...nothing to see here folks, move along

Report: 2,000 bodies found in northeast Japan


(CNN) -- Approximately 2,000 bodies were found Monday in Miyagi Prefecture on Japan's northeast coast, the Kyodo news agency reported.

If confirmed, the discovery would be the largest yet of victims from last week's devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Roughly 1,000 bodies were found coming ashore on Miyagi's Ojika Peninsula, while another 1,000 were seen in the town of Minamisanriku, where some 10,000 people are unaccounted for, Kyodo reported.
