Radioactive Releases in Japan Could Last Months, Experts Say


www.nytimes.com

But Pentagon officials reported Sunday that helicopters flying 60 miles from the plant picked up small amounts of radioactive particulates — still being analyzed, but presumed to include Cesium-137 and Iodine-121 — suggesting widening environmental contamination. In a country where memories of a nuclear horror of a different sort in the last days of World War II weigh heavily on the national psyche and national politics, the impact of continued venting of long-lasting radioactivity from the plants is hard to overstate.

Nooooooo.... hopefully this is only the extent of it... and won't be worse...

But this is very very very bad. And it exposes the lies of the Japanese government... and cast doubts on the real situation of what going on in those nuclear plants.

Hopefully they really succeed in cooling down the reactors before it goes China syndrome on us...

Have your Potassium Iodide pills ready along with your Geiger Counter, the last thing you want is to wake up a mutant


I'm actually surprised that the Pentagon released that much information. Knowing them the radiation is probably 3x as far out as they said it was.

Guess we'll have to see for ourselves.

Update : new tsunami to hit area where the Fukushima plant is...

And sounds of an explosion + smoke at the plant.


Kyodo says Japan issued a 3-meter tsunami warning on east coast, including Fukushima. AP says gray smoke is seen on Fukushima reactor.

Not good at all!

So whats going to happen when japan can no longer be inhabited because of dangerously high levels of background radiation? What role is this going to play in the global economy? Japan shows one of the highest indexes for technological growth. With no power and no resources, Japan is going to have to shut down their stock exchange. It seems the situation is larger than radioactive material in the environment, paired with the oil crisis in the middle east, this could potentially contribute to a global economic shutdown.

Those poor people dont deserve this.
No one does.

I hope they get this under control soon.
Its masking the coverage of the revolutions.

Not that its not serious...but do we really need 24/7 re run coverage?

If this can be confirmed, then it is a good indication that the core containment is breached.

Not good.
