ROFL. You are seriously going to eat anything cooked outdoors in any type of weather after fukushima? No way! There's going to be massive increases in cancer patients in the next couple years to come, watch and see. I've heard that radiation has been detected in water as far east as massachussets in the U.S.
Its that bad world wide imagine what Japan is like. Why the hell havent they evacuated the Japan yet? This is getting crazier the longer it goes on. I heard yesterday that there are cracks under the power plant and radioactive steam coming out, i wonder what part of the world THATS going to float to?
More than 800 people in northern Sweden may have developed cancer as a result of the fallout of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear accident, a new study claims.

Common misconception. The rain is carrying particulate that is radioactive, the water itself is not, just the material it is bring down close to the ground.

Coal Ash is more Radioactive than Nuclear waste.
The total solar energy absorbed by Earth's atmosphere, oceans and land masses is approximately 3,850,000 exajoules (EJ) per year. In 2002, this was more energy in one hour than the world used in one year. Photosynthesis captures approximately 3,000 EJ per year in biomass. The amount of solar energy reaching the surface of the planet is so vast that in one year it is about twice as much as will ever be obtained from all of the Earth's non-renewable resources of coal, oil, natural gas, and mined uranium combined.
Solar energy can be harnessed in different levels around the world. Depending on a geographical location the closer to the equator the more "potential" solar energy is available
Iwas expecting to see him point the detector (is that a Geiger counter?) to one of those cement blocks, that would be interesting.

Why did he only wipe the solar panels to begin with? Seems like a pretty sorry control, or lack of......
That's not enough, because those would not show the amount of radiation before, during and after the event.

Just study normal jetstream maps.
If it happens in Portugal then I will know, we don't have forced medical internment, so people cannot be put in a hospital to hide it.
E.coli comment...agreed...but it gets you thinking what excuses they might use when it does start happening...and it will.

The rain is radioactive almost everywhere, but Canada is getting an especially large dose due to the jet stream from Japan. If you had been researching Fukushima, you would have known this already. Treat yourself and your rained-on possessions as radiologically contaminated, and act accordingly. I don't really know what to wash with if it gets onto your skin... but the larger concern is washing any clothes that got rained on (hopefully while still wet) and not letting the particles get dry and dust up around your house. The main goal IMO will be not breathing anything in.
This is part 3 of my measurements of the radioactivity falling on the north of GTA (Greater Toronto Area), Canada on August 14th 2011 at 17h55. Approximately 1 square metre of smooth surface wiped (glass, solar panels). Measured with a Eberline HP-260 Pancake Probe and with a Eberline E-140 counter. (Sorry for the crappy video quality, I was using my cell phone camera, I guess it's alright for a first upload...) I measured 20 000 cpm per square meter of wipe today!!! This is the all time record since I have been taking measurements since March 14th 2011 . Previous record was 10 000cpm (counts per minute).
