Thank you for this post... I am working for a German company in Japan at the moment and one of my colleagues works for the radiation lab (in fact the only person ) and he is in charge of controlling foods etc. and there is no change in radiation. Stop the fearmongering. There is a lot of toxine which is in our food. 30km away from Fukushima, there is lower radiation then in Munich for example.
Yet another shill crawls out from the woodwork. You are a LIAR! Why would you say this when it's completely untrue??? I trust Arnie Gundersen anyday over nuclear industry lackeys like yourself. Spread your disinfo elsewhere we know the truth and it's getting out.
The REAL truth
Last time I checked Tokyo was 200 or so miles from the plant. So, are we to trust a former nuclear engineer or a nobody from Germany? I hate to be the one to break it to you, but you're more than likely EATING nuclear waste. If I were you I'd outsource my food supply somehow, because your being lied to, or you're lying to yourself and us.edit on 24-4-2012 by Nucleardoom because: (no reason given)

Can someone help me out please? OK radiation is now being detected in heaps of places. But, can someone give a run down on
1./ the "levels" now,
2./ Projected future levels monthly/ 6 monthly / yearly etc
3./ What type of half life / lives ae involved?
Because wouldn't the half life be one of the most important factors? If the half life of the radioactive material being dispersed is say 1 week then the prob shouldn't be anywhere as bad as say a half life of 500 years or even thousands of years. I would be greatful for any serious, "educated" replies please
The most commonly-used isotopes -- and those found at Fukushima -- are plutonium 238, with a half life of 88 years; plutonium 239, with a half life of 24,000 years; and plutonium 240, with a half life of 6,500 years.

This thread contains the biggest load of rubbish I've seen posted on ATS.
The reactors at Fukushima are in cold shutdown, all below 70 degrees C. The radiation that is being talked about is *inside the containment vessel* making it difficult for the endoscopes and other equipment to obtain photos of the *inside* of the reactor containment vessel.
There is still radioactive water that has been leaking and they are taking measures to pour concrete into the nearby sea to prevent contamination. But measurements close to the reactor vicinity show that there is only very low levels of contamination in the nearby ocean.
The reactors no longer have the capability of releasing radioactive material off site via the atmosphere.
Now please explain how, given the containment of the problem to the site and in the occasional leak of contaminated water into the ocean that the US is is any danger whatsoever?
The thread title is absolute rubbish. Concrete nuclear reactors in cold shutdown do not "fall apart". You people are unbelievable.

We as humans had our chance and we blew it.
Time to clean house IMO.
This isn't the fault of greedy corporations or corrupt politicians.
The blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the entire human race.
Each and every one of us.
IF we do not recieve outside intervention PRONTO
we will not be here much longer to worry about it.
These problems were caused by us....the human race and.......
No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.
