Chernobyl proved that
You tell me to educate myself on the subject, but one of the greatest man made disasters in human history has happened as a result of them building this nuclear plant where they did... So you can go on and on about geo thermal this and that, but ultimately, they didn't take into account disasters on the scale of the EQ that happened off the coast of Japan that started a chain event of Tsunami's, after shocks, and many other horrible things that have not only hurt the country of Japan, but have now threatened the rest of the world... So, you can say it was a good decision all you want, I just flat out disagree with you after seeing the results we have (and knowing that it likely will get far worse)...
And I do admit I am not an expert on the subject, I'm just an outsider looking in, I could be wrong with everyone I've wrote, but these are my feelings/opinions on building a nuclear plant in a EQ zone that has a long history of devastating tsunami'sedit on 5-1-2014 by jhn7537 because: (no reason given)

So you believe the Fukushima effect on the rest of the world will be minor, why are you so confident? Have you not seen any of the effects that have been seen in the US alone? Or the dead creatures being found on the ocean floor in the Pacific (We had a ATS thread on that earlier this week)...
My question to you is, do you believe the below article is total crap or just fear mongering? If so, why do you believe this? And, would you believe what TEPCO/Govt's would say about the disaster, would you trust their stance on it and the data/info they're sharing with the public? Govt's have been known to keep the truth away from people, so I really doubt anything they say or promote nowadays. I
Article that's been on ATS
I really don't understand why the rest of the world hasn't stood up to Japan yet and waged war on them if they don't allow "others" to come in and help fix this disaster?? Why aren't ALL the leading minds on this industry on route to Japan to determine a solution for this? This can have world-wide effects, so it shouldn't just be Tepco and Japan trying to figure this mess out..

Hey since it's not serious at all, do you mind if I fly you out to the Fukushima region? Care to go swimming along the coast? Eat seafood from the water around the effected area?
A lot of you (not going to call you a debunker, becuase you may be sincere) "not so serious types" seem to down play this all the time. I would love to see if you had the guts to go over there since it's not so serious... I'm sure you and every other "not so serious type" would coward away quickly...
1. Maybe you could identify who these researchers are that you claim are saying radiation levels are not elevated. I am not seeing this info out there. On what do you back your claim that the people reporting higher radiation levels don't know how to use their instruments. Sounds like you are making claims, but have never bothered to see if they are correct.
3. I don't think you have a clue how serious the reality is. There is very little information out there, and what is out there is dodgy, sketchy at best.
5 - 21 Based on what, your ability to call things crap?
22. Um, your claim that there is 0 radioactivity, nothing, in coastal waters basically cements your complete lack of knowledge on the subject.
