Expert on Fukushima radiation in US: ‘We know its going to impact public health’
• It’s more a matter of something happened that we didn’t want to happen.
• We know its going to impact public health.
• There’s not a whole lot you can do about it.
• Once you let the horse out of the barn, hell, the horse took the barn door with it.
• We’re stuck, this is an accident that should have been prevented. It’s hard to respond to it.
And now, for something completely different:

You just can't make this stuff up folks...
And from April, a supercilious post that really attracted our attention to the apparent ignorance and insensitivity that blocks the sheeple's reality of the true horror of the Fukushima multiple melt-through nuclear disaster/fiasco spewing life-altering radiation 24/7/365 with no end or solution in sight.
And so what, the Japanese will have a few babies born limbless or with blotchy skin,
they will adapt to their environment.
You're joking, right?
My wife is Japanese, my in-laws are Japanese, and many of the surviving in-laws did time in Tehachapi and we do not appreciate your attempt at levity or derailment.
If you do not think anything is wrong, you eat the yellow snow and drink the milk.
Now just to clear the air, i do not like what is going on over there but we cannot help the situation playing keyboard tag with the mongering of fear.
Speak for yourself.
"Playing keyboard tag," as you call it, just might invigorate enough concerned citizens to get up off their lazy butts, turn off American Idol, Dancing With the Stars and Cupcake Wars and
We certainly hope so. We are. OPERATION SURVIVAL is a working title for a project in bloom and a natural outgrowth of our Alliance roots. Stay tuned and you heard it here first.
As you can plainly see, dear reader, there is a lot of (re)education to be done to turn the tide in favor of life.
Meanwhile, the goalposts keep getting moved and acceptable collateral damage limits are steadily increased.

Japan raising radiation limit to 20 millisieverts/year leads to 160,000 lifetime cancers per million people
In April, the Japanese government raised its maximum limit for children from one to 20 millisieverts per year, a level that leads to 2,270 cancers annually per million people (or 160,000 lifetime cancers per million), according to data in a landmark 2006 U.S. National Academy of Sciences report on radiation cancer risk.
A massive outcry later forced the government to reverse the move.
About a fifth of the 1,600 schools in Fukushima prefecture were exposed to at least 20 milliseiverts of radiation this year, according to a Bloomberg story in July. [...]
The children already have a year's worth of radiation in 4 months at the 20 millisieverts per year!
