Germany has permanently shut down eight of its reactors and pledged to close the rest by 2022. The Italians have voted overwhelmingly to keep their country non-nuclear. Switzerland and Spain have banned the construction of new reactors. Japan’s prime minster has called for a dramatic reduction in Japan’s reliance on nuclear power.
As of November 2011, countries such as Australia, Austria, Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Israel, Malaysia, New Zealand, and Norway remain opposed to nuclear power.
Pacific Ocean May Be Lost,
FYI: A normal coal powered station will emit far more radiation in it's life time than any nuclear reactor, barring a major catastrophe, but people only moan about CO2 when thinking of coal...

WAIT JUST A MINUTE!!! My TV box hasn't said anything about Japan in months....isn't that over?
When are they going to tell the truth about the actual accident, then maybe they could start thinking of solutions.
I really dislike these kind of stories, there is no factual substance to it, and it only spreads fear. Fear is extremely powerful and dangerous, we should try to limit spreading it if we can.

Hiding our heads in the sand is also dangerous. Would a recent ocean impact map of the radiation spreading into the pacific be factual enough?

Maybe I'm showing my ignorance here but I have to ask - were the results of dropping two a-bombs on Japan not as bad as for the earth as this Fukushima mess? Seems like the planet hardly even felt the effects ... outside of the Nagasaki and Hiroshima anyway.
