The point isn't that the radiation levels are low enough to not cause HARM, but the fact that there is any radiation streaming across the ocean, with
a disaster that is getting worse, and worse, and worse is definitely worth watching out for...
It's a warning, it's to be prepared. Because what happens IF Fukushima goes, if they cannot contain it, all the spent fuel pools dry up, crack, light
on fire and release radiation on par with Chernobyl into the air?
This is becoming VERY, very real. They have admitted today that they haven't been entirely truthful with what information is released. How are we
supposed to know just how much will really make it into our borders? Noone knows, that's why we HAVE to keep an eye on it.
The situation, as admitted by even Japanese authorities, is NOT looking good. They are going to last ditch efforts to contain massive releases of
radiation. This is just the start, it will build up more and more.
We just need to be prepared and keep an eye on things, and know when you should properly have to take action to avoid the west coast or pop your
iodine pills. This isn't fear mongering (unless the title was changed), as it reads that radiation HAS reached the west coast from Fukushima.
And this is verified... so how is this fear mongering, if all facts have been represented? There was never an a display that it would be even close to
damaging to US residents, but still of concern. But the Japanese government HAS admitted it will only get worse.
