I could post more scientific information, but yeah, that should make the point for now.

Basically there is a rash of fear mongering concerning what and how exactly Fukushima is affecting life on this planet. The people doing the fear mongering have no science to back them up, and will never post science that proves their point? Why? Because their beliefs just originate back to a circle jerk of bloggers who have no idea what is actually going on.

The motto of this site is deny ignorance. To deny ignorance you must educate yourself on the situation. In this case, the people who are denying ignorance are those who refuse to look at the science behind what is going on.

Fukushima IS a disaster, a bad one. It will probably be a disaster for a very long time. There is no taking away from that. However, the FACTS do not currently change that this is localized to Japan for the moment and is in no way shape or form affecting any countries outside of it for the moment.

If you want to debate the facts on this issue please SOURCE your data or I will dismiss it without merit. I linked science, you should do the same.

Ha ha!!!! Brilliant!!!

I spent some time over the last few days looking into the 'truth' about Fukushima - from scientists; from websites that are NOT 'sensationalized doom-porn.'

Exactly spot on. I even clicked on your thread to say "Nuh uh!!" but -- you backed up exactly what I was going to add to that!!

No worries, folks. Well....some worries. 'Cause it sucks, overall. But --- We'll be okay - so will the marine life, and other flora and fauna (and humans) (which are fauna). It IS a horrible thing. No doubt about it; and I'm not denying that damage was done, or that consequences will not be felt.

But - it was a relief to read about the actual "SCIENCE" behind the current situation.

Simply said I agree but the backlash will be fun to read. I live on lake Michigan and a woman I work with told me I had better move because the water will be bad because of the meltdown in Japan before anybody tells me.????????????????????????????????

Thank you!

Fukushima remains a problem because it's unstable and leaking, but it's hardly the end of the West Coast just yet.

Like probably everyone in Japan, we'll just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope they can get it stabilized before another event cracks that bad egg wide open.

People seem to overlook Chernobyl, as a very good (if not our only really comparable) example of what to expect. Yes people and animals will die as a direct result. But life inevitably goes on. In fact the wildlife is flourishing there with the people gone.

I expect it will take considerably longer due to the scope, but Japan will be fine. And so will the planet. Humans will have to try a little harder to wipe them selves out. Because Fukushima is not going to do it.

But, surprisingly FEWER than we are led to believe.

I could go into a long reply complete with "scientific" links to back it up, but I won't. You need to do more research ( is a great start) before you can begin to downplay any effects already incurred from this disaster or any future ramifications for not only Japan, but the entire world. I will point out only one of a myriad of potentially globally devastating problems with this disaster:

The spent fuel pool in reactor "building" 4.

How many more quakes will it take before the house of cards topples?

But you didn't. So your post is pointless with no data to back you up, which is exactly what the uninformed continue to do.

Come back when you have time to write a proper post with science behind it.

Since graduating, Gundersen has founded and serves as the President of Fairewinds Associates, Inc, which provides paralegal research, expert witness testimony, discovery review and preparation of deposition questions.

Because of Gundersen's background in nuclear power, she has been hired to work on many prominent cases involving nuclear power plants and illegal radioactive dumping.

That's the woman who is behind

She's in Houston. Her site routes through Europe at some point....but, I'm no programmer or net-nerd....

We cannot legally give you specific advice on what it is safe to eat.
We are not doctors, and cannot give you medical advice.
We cannot legally give you specific product recommendations or purchasing advice.
We do not find computer generated maps tracking the spread of radiation, airborne or liquid, to be accurate or reliable because they are based entirely on estimations of the amount of radiation released.
Fairewinds does not do testing, so please DO NOT SEND US SAMPLES.
We are not equipped to handle or test potentially radioactive materials. Unsolicited samples will not be opened and will be discarded.
