I haven't seen this mentioned, but after spending a few minutes watching Tepco's webcam....there are birds flying around occasionally.... shouldn't these guys be getting some pretty bad doses flying around that place???

Then I saw one land on cam and it occurred to me that these birds are probably going who knows where with who knows what on their feathers.... what if they were migratory?

Just something to toss out there.

That is one way radiation can spread outside any exclusion zone. Animals can't read. Tuna in the pacific brought some to the west coast of America.

Believe it or not, the area around Chernobyl is considered a Wildlife Sanctuary to some. The exclusion zone is home to a wide variety of wildlife and a surprising number.

Few wild animals lived in the region in 1986; their habitats had been destroyed for Soviet dairy farms and pine plantations. But large mammals started appearing almost immediately after the evacuations, and the animal populations soon exploded.

Roe deer and wild boar caught here in the early 1990s packed more than 2,000 times the safety norms for cesium-137 in meat. Though internal radiation levels have since dropped dramatically, some animals recently tested in Belarus still exceeded safe levels by dozens of times.

National Geographic also did a pretty good bit about the wildlife there and it is amazing. It's also a unique place..or, maybe not so unique now, sadly. A small piece of Japan may well endure the same legacy in the long term.

Yes, a huge swath of what is now Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia was blanketed by dangerous radiation. And hundreds of thousands of people—entire towns—were relocated.

But within a 1,100-square-mile (2,850-square-kilometer) area that remains cleared of most people and agriculture, the wildlife have moved in. A surprising variety of animals actually appear to be thriving in a landscape that is devoid of human activity. Scientists have observed that other species show signs of troubling genetic changes, evidence of the continuing long-term aftermath of what is still seen as the world's worst nuclear disaster.

The radiation won't kill everything or even most things like poison gas might. It'll subtly and slowly change life and at the basic level. The mutations and outright birth defects ...but also evolution in artificially forced ways. Never a good thing... Hopefully they keep the Chernobyl Exclusion zone a closed area for our lifetimes, anyway. It's quite a thing. However, irradiated areas are certainly not automatic dead zones.

They collect, naturalamente, a lot of Radiation but their Life Cycle is much shorter!

A few Months ago i visited a Lecture with Tim Mousseau here in Tokyo,
when you use a external Search Engine you get many Studies from him
he done in Chernobyl and Fukushima, very interesting!

He love Birds

One of the most interesting Things he said is that the Nature
is "very Radical" and Birds with even the slightest Change
in their Feathering have no possibility to reproduce!

He is talking about Swallows who migrate a lot
but nearly always return to their Place of Birth
(Chernobyl/ Fukushima) and he found out that
the common Wildlife is not flourishing but decreased
for ca. 30%!

I really like his scientific Approach without falling
for the Bs., i highly recommend his Research
also regarding "Fruitmutations",
we laughed a lot about the Internet in that case.

A little bit difficult to see but in front is Taro Yamamoto
who gave a "Letter of Concern" yesterday to the Emperor
which caused a lot of Trouble here in Japan!

They should quarentine the birds lol.

it only makes sense that if the birds are eating irradiated food........ that means every time they poop... they are dropping little dirty bombs all over the place. A bird can fly a long ways in one day.

Yep! Another cover up! Actually brought the birds in;

Just like the gulf oil spill, all cleaned up!

And people are still eating food coming from there! Watched a movie called BigFix, explains how we Clean Up Things.

There is no way to clean up their mess in Japan. Most of it is covered up, hidden from everyone. Things are floating up on the beaches of CA! Even Life so far under the Sea is coming up for air!

Don't worry though, this will be debunked too. No one wants to know if their children having kids might grow another eye or even worst! They will play it off, act like nothings going to happen.

You know the drill!

Oh, Thats Creapy!

Some seeds that birds do eat need to be passed in order to grow. Man eating plant life maybe?

Fukushima was already in May 2012 the most and best Documented
Industrial Accident, it is really amazing how much Data is out there,
we know mostly everything,
except the exact Location of the molten Fuel
but we know it is not left and rights
as well as not above the Reactor

They know! Just do not Know What to do!

Who actually has a plan for this anyway? Some have thought about it and took some steps just In Case yet only looking at it on a small level or say 10 yrs from now. Now, since it will effect pretty much the Whole Planet, where can you actually start?

Will the Planet get hotter, or colder? Loss of Life will be in the ???????? and thats just Sea life alone! Rad effects things at different levels, like a cockroach really. It gets sick, dies and has some young and the young live with it later. Different things will show of latter of if their body can not handle it, Poof!

Now if one wants to consider what their eating from the sea, how will the effects take hold say in 3-5 yrs? Next you have the Spring season, how much as gone into vapor and is just waiting, floating in the air? And when it does decide to storm, will the rain that follows have any? Most will flip it and say that their is no Rad in the water whatsoever, period! Call it a Dis-Ease and give it a name. What comes after Bird Flu? Cat Flu? Dog Flu? Could jump to Sea Flu 2012 and call it like it is!

I actually Feel for the ones spending all their waking life looking for answeres!

I go with Science, this is the most calm Way for me,
please have a look:
Fukushima Daiichi

Vs. Chernobyl


We should not forget that ca. 80% of the Fukushima Emissions are gone
to the East but this Photos make it clear that Chernobyl was much more
"colorful" than Fukushima NPS.

The Harm for our, the Japanese Birds, is smaller than for the
Birds in Soviet Russia.
