Wow! We are supposed to be monitoring radiation levels and and half of the monitors aren't working properly. Well that's real safe for us. I hope it becomes a big issue so the makers of these monitors can Learn a huge lesson.

Eight of 18 air monitors in California, Oregon and Washington state that track radiation from Japan’s nuclear reactors are “undergoing quality review,” according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s website. A sufficient number of devices are working and can measure any changes in radiation levels from the damaged Fukushima Dai- Ichi reactors, said Ronald Fraass, director of the EPA’s National Air and Radiation Environmental Laboratory in Montgomery, Alabama. “What we are seeing is not a problem,” Fraass said today in a telephone interview.

how long has the reactors been spewing there toxic smoke gas and steam? and just now the EPA is saying the monitors are not working? yea right just for john Q public, how would you tell some 50 million people you have got to move with in the next 5 years if they only could see the RAD numbers, in the worse case that is as it stands those along the coast line and 5 miles inland should think about leaving.

The EPA really is a joke..
5 days ago the nuclear crisis was all over MSM aswell as the tsunami, all off a sudden no word on it after 4 days ago, the last couple of days their has been small snippets saying how "Fast and Efficeint" the rebuilding is blah blah blah for 30 seconds and then this is literally what they say as they are closing that news topic "and the Fukashima nuclear crisis worsens or remains critical." Its a major MSM blackout I beleive, one of the boldest and right in your face blackouts I've seen in Australia.

Nice.

Especially since it looks like reactor #3 at Fukushima may have breached.

It did breach but they haven't said yet because they don't want us to know how bad it really is! Sad that they can't just tell us the truth and then try to fix it but it's too late. They lied and we all know it can't be fixed!

However I am happy to see them trying to fix it! I mean at least they aren't just giving up.

Auh! I see. I was thinking of the one that already breached. I was confused. That really sucks. They should just give up and evacuate. I'll keep a few people here until they are safe to go back home.

As you can see it is in external quotes so people already know I didnt write it myself. And why is it that you seem to think you need to come to every thread I make and post a personal attack against me and post nonsense that is irrelevant to the topic? You just joined the website so I think you need to you review the rules before you go around telling people they do things wrong or telling them they sound like a fool or posting personal attacks.

If you don't like a topic then don't post. Move on to the next thread and stop wasting your time posting nonsense.
