I watched some of the address yesterday afternoon. I just didn't get that warm, fuzzy, safe feeling that I think he was trying to present.

I think it is really not so necessary to be too worried, rosetta stone spanishhowever ,US is still far away from Japan...and i believe that the government always think more for their people, they have enough iodine plates to provide if it really happens.

Say, have you made your bracket picks yet?

I'm off to Rio!!

How's that hope and change workin' for ya? Working pretty good for me, got enough for 5 years of survive in place. I just wish my Geiger counter would shut the heck up.

Oh, OK. I guess everything is cool then.

Was concerned for a minute there, glad I can go back to filling out my bracket.

While typically I could care less what the government recommends as far as preparation for events is concerned, this is one of those moments when it would be prudent to listen.

There is VERY LITTLE danger of a radioactive plume causing any havoc in the US at all. Even for those in Hawaii. If it were a high probability that a radioactive cloud would kill off living things thousands of miles away in the US, ALL of Japan would be dead by now and so would Hawaii.

Nice info on these links. Thanks. I noticed a lot of vitamins and herbal remedies. Better get them in before they are taken off the shelves because of 'Codex Alimentarius'!

That's another part of New World Order's Agenda 21. Take away the populations ability to protect themselves with more natural substances!!

Oh no not the radioactive zombies again. Just when i thought it was safe to go to sleep at night here they come. I think most Americans are zombies radioactive or not. Those of you that are leaving please leave your keys and deeds with me to take care of

i saw an interesting study back when there was a case being made for the people who were downwind from the above ground tests in nevada, many decades ago now. they found there was a belt of people, across the usa who had a higher incidence of multiple sclerosis and that it coincided with the jet stream, for the most part. the interesting part was, that it wasn't isolated to the immediate area, but all the way across the usa.

will see if i can find the map that shows the data, unless someone else has it.

amazing how many people are downplaying this.

ionizing radioactive isotopes are dangerous at ANY level, and are not comparable to things like 'being in the sun'.

are you people morons or do you just enjoy being reckless?

im actually very disappointed to see some of the usual 'proof or it didnt happen' parrots here accepting obamas word as gospel...

well obama we are all ears.... you say its safe and not to worry, well put your money where your mouth is. lets open public access to the data readings over the pacific.

here's a pdf on it. page 16 "A Journal of Mormon Thought"
actually contains a map of where the fall out went. these were real nukes, tested above ground in the usa proper.

i think the japanese example is alot less dangerous by comparison, but it never hurts to be careful. just don't have open windows for a month or so, perhaps? don't drive with car windows open, etc.

From 1945 onwards, the US Goverment and other countries of the world have released in excess of 2045 nukes in the space of 65 years , both in the air, on and underground and in our oceans.

The US alone has detonated around 101 atmosopheric nukes within its own borders between 1951 - 1963 with a further 909 underground detonation of nukes between 1951 - 1992. Even Britain was allowed to detonated a further 24 nukes on US soil between 1962 - 1991

With all these nukes going off everywhere in such a short period of time it kinda makes the incident in Japan seem pretty small in comparison.

In closing, I post video by Isao Hashimoto which demonstrates very clearly the scale of 'testing' of nukes carried out within the lifetime of many reading this post.

how are controllad weapons tests comparable to multiple reactor meltdowns?

did you just hear the word 'nuclear' and assume they were the same thing?

And 'controlled' release of 1000's of nukes means its radiation fallout is somehow safer than a reactor meltdown? There is certainly a possibility the damaged reactors in Japan may or may not get worse, my post was to highlight ONLY what has already happened thus far.

If we look at the Chernobyl disaster of 1986 we see that:-

The Chernobyl disaster was a nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine). It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and it is the only one classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale.

Four hundred times more radioactive material was released than had been by the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. However, compared to the total amount released by nuclear weapons testing during the 1950s and 1960s, the Chernobyl disaster released 1/100 to 1/1000 the radioactivity.

When a president says to "just listen to your government" We should all be concerned. Especially when the words come from our current Narcissist in Chief. I'll listen to the govt. when and if they ever complete a project on time and on budget.

I agree radiation from Japan is not much of a threat to us. However we definitely should prepare, and this tragedy is a good reminder to do so. With all the earthquake activity around the world, volcanoes and weather etc,. going on, we have nuclear plants also and this could happen somewhere closer to home to any one of us. So take this as a que to get prepared!

I agree with Hawkiye here. A situation like the one in Japan should be a wake-up call to the possibility of similar scenarios here in the states and our region. We should be getting prepared. If this happened here, you better believe we'd be getting on it.
