I cant wait for the post on April 1st (AFD) where someone reports seeing Godzilla coming out of Tokyo harbor (with a faux study on the effects of radiation on accelerated growth in certain animal species). Not that any of this is funny but I couldnt resist.

None of it appears to have been well thought out in the long term..
If the nuclear engineers who designed these plants didn't know about the solar lunar connection to earth quakes, and fault lines...
what eles don't they know?
[T]here are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don't know we don't know.

The wind is moving at a speed of about two to three meters per second, said the official with the Japan Meteorological Agency who is based in Fukushima Prefecture, the location of three troubled reactors.
The French embassy in Tokyo warned in an 0100 GMT advisory that a low level of radioactive wind could reach Tokyo in about 10 hours, advising its citizens to leave the city.
The German embassy issued a "general advisory" urging all Germans and their relatives to register on a "crisis list" and to consider leaving Japan, especially those with families.

Tokyo is Upwind from the reactors.. they'd have to have a Westerly wind to have fallout reach Tokyo .. most of the fallout would fall within 5-10 miles of the reactor, but most being out at sea since the reactors are on the coast. California would get more radiation than Tokyo.
South West. The wind would have to be directly South, or blow out to sea then back at them going Southwest.edit on 3/15/2011 by Rockpuck because: (no reason given)
