I really wonder where you are getting your information from! The evacuation zone is not being extended.
Sorry - it is correct that the evacuation zone has been expanded to certain areas where higher levels of radiation have been detected, but residents are being asked to evacuate within a month, so it hardly sounds like a desperate situation. And who says they don't have gas? It may be in short supply, but it is possible to get it. I'm sure you can check for yourself, but if you can't, I'll give you the BBC website reference ("Life inside the Exclusion Zone" or something like that).
The US and UK recommended a 50 mile exclusion zone with the same recommendations, but the US has now admitted that it did this without any scientific evidence.
do you have any proof they admited this?
Yes. Here you are:
I would think that still leaking radiation would make things worse wouldn't you??
there have been several members of ATS giving reports from inside Japan as well..and the numbers don't always match...but trust the ones that you want..
I have friends who are researchers at Tokyo University. The University has 3 separate radiation counters, all of which give very similar figures to those in Shinjuku. If you have a source for different figures, please post it.
Actually, why not hop on a plane to Tokyo - the US government isn't saying it's not safe - and take a look at things here
Actually if I had a way there I would come...not to sit in Tokyo but to go and try help get people out of the radiation zone
And In the month following the Chernobyl explosion 134 workers were hospitalised with acute radiation sickness and 31 died
and if you think that only those few people died from Chernobyl then there is no use talking to you further...
Where did I ever say that?? Why not reply to what I said, not what you imagine. What I am talking about here (I'm sure you know that, don't you?) is the number of workers who died in the immediate ONE MONTH period after the explosion. I'm sorry if that wasn't clear enough for you.
It seems that you really WANT this to be a huge disaster. Why is that?
