My main concern is for the poor souls in Japan at this time. And I know lots of folks in the USA are scared right now, but please - Any fallout will have a loong way to travel over the sea before it gets to you.
I remember Chernobyl well as a child and though the resulting fallout had some devestating effects for those in the direct path for many years, by the time it hit the UK most we had to worry about was destroying the wool of our sheep, though the meat was still quite edible (people tended to buy imports though). Sure we've had our fair share of cancer rates / odd animal births, but don't forget we've also had the odd hair raising moments from our own Nuclear facilities too!

At this point, I think I'd rather just watch the MSM to get fairly accurate limited information, rather than getting flooded with 100% inaccurate overload of information.
Haven't you noticed that ATS has become worse than the MSM the past year or so? Maybe 1% of the information posted on this site is accurate, if that. The end of the world comes often on ATS, in the form of flu pandemics, oil spills, military invasions starting WW3 and now nuclear accidents.
This is no doubt indicative of the garbage which has inundated this site and a direct reflection of the individuals who are running this pixelated rag. This is what happens to a site when the owners prefer to pursue a selfish agenda, instead of pursuing quality control.
Quality members are dropping like flies...errr...I mean dropping like birds on ATS. [/quot
Well put. I find it odd that i tried to post a decent sized paragraph to somebody who needed a bit of reassurance when i was suddenly locked out of ATS. Now, i'm not usually the paranoid type but when i finally got back in and went to the thread i commented on, I noticed somebody else had posted exactly the same thing as me but mine hadn't gone through. Just sorta made me a bit mad but, not much i can do about it i suppose.
