The primary issue here is that we all know that something happened, and that radiation did leak, and it had to go somewhere, right?
Honestly, That is not the main issue.
It's not that there was no radiation leakage.... there was.
And it's not that it didn't disperse into the environment, because it did.
The issue here is the amount of radiation that leaked, and the effects OF that radiation.
More specifically, the ignorance of what Radiation IS, it's effects, it's source, and the tedious mathematics for determining the overall
radioactivity of the leak.
You see, The amount of radiation that leaked is potentially deadly, if it was all concentrated in one spot, and you are standing right next to it....
there is no getting around the fact.
But the media likes to over-hype the danger that this may represent.
Most of the radiation that leaked went into the Sea, and the Air.... where it was dispersed to harmlessness within a month or two.
The total release of radioactive materials from the fukushima plants isn't even a drop in the bucket compared to the normal rates of radioactivity on
the planet earth at all times.
Which brings me back to your statement about everyone's "Agenda"
Now, if we were to take this at face value, and state that the media was just sensationalizing the news because they like to fearmonger to get
ratings.... then we would have to ask why they don't also have Month long exposé's on the dangers of mercury in flu shots, or water
flouridization, or television flicker rates, or high frequency magnetic fields from power lines or whatever.
So, the question *IS*, why has the media chosen to sensationalize THIS story, and not others?
And just to pre-empt any potential retorts in the vain of the supposed levels of dangerousness... No, unless you actually LIVE in the fukushima
exclusion zone, you are not going to be effected by the radiation.
