Thanks for the mention!
I must share some of the credit with my wife as she is the one who told me about the story, she had read it on the msn home page (I think) and I went
to find the earliest version of the story I could.
I next came here to ATS expecting that someone would have posted a thread or at least a mention in the
Japan declares 'nuclear emergency' after quake
thread and was quite surprised that it
had not been posted there either.
It will be some time before definitive results are in (according to the story in the OP) and I am hoping that they find that the problem is not

zroth has a point with their post in which
they make mention of BP and
other cxauses of environmental contamination. I conceed the point in my

The catastrophe is going to have wide ranging connsequences.
Whether these ringed seals (bearded seals, and walruses too , remember) are experiencing the effects of radiation directly, or from eating fish which
were contaminated, or what is happening to these animals of different species (which argues for an environmental cause) is something else, Fukushima
Daiichi is still nowhere close to a resolution, regardless of Tepco's insistence on "cold shut down."
They have been known to use words which they do not seem to know the common definition of, so take that for what it is worth...
Again, thank you!
