Judging from the absence of replies, I can see why the media ignores this disaster.

then i guess we all fail as a species,, together then,.
I was under the impression a nuclear war would result in a nuclear winter.
Am I wrong in my math?
Our nature is to learn from mistakes. We made a HUGE one. a few of them, so let's learn to better the future instead of dwelling on how bad everything seems to be.

You people have been saying this for months now and guess what? there is no evidence for dangers to large populations.
NISA Mentions "Neptunium-239" in August 29 Press Conference
Now this is very curious.
The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (NISA)'s daily press conference is ongoing (August 29). The NISA spokesman Moriyama mentions neptunium-239's conversion ratio to plutonium-239 as 1 to 1.
According to the June 6 estimate by the NISA:
So, now it is:
Plutonium-239: 7.6 x 10^13, or 76,000,000,000,000 or 76 terabecquerels
The amount of plutonium-239 has increased 23,000-fold.

This may be a stupid question but here goes.
Isn't the end result here the reactor melting down and reaching ground water, if it hasn't already. Once that happens is there anything that can stop it ? I mean it seems once it reaches drinking water it's all over but the crying. Everyone in Japan should be evacuated and relocated.
How can anyone live there if it's in the ground water. Wouldn't it eventually spread all over Japan ?
