    Conflicting stories?

    BBC article on the explosion

    Apparently this article says the reactor itself was never damaged.

    The map displays where fallout from the worst case scenario might spread nuclear material and how long it would take to get there. The authenticity of this map and it’s sourcing is in question. Australian Radiation Services has been contacted for verification.

    Inb4 panic. Assuming this is even real, I think I`m right in saying that this is a "what if" picture. It looks like everything will be under control, and The World Health Organisation says the public health risk from Japan`s radiation leak appears to be "probably quite low". The worst case scenario isn`t even that bad.

    Also, reading up on this, the reactor core is still intact. The amount of radiation shown on this map would only be possible through a full reactor meltdown/blowout.

    The amount is diminished greatly by the time it actually reaches land. It drops to less than 1/3 of what it started at according to this and you probably get exposed to more radiation than that if you get an xray so I wouldn`t get to upset about it.

    "I call bull it wuldnt travle that far and it wuld get caught up in the pacific wind currents going south"

    Yes it would.

    "This is very stupid, radiation cannot be steered by wind, and the radioactive material wouldn`t have been blown to pieces into the atmosphere, so that couldn`t have been steered either."

    Chernobyl didn`t either, but it still caused major devastation, and radiation can be steered by wind you dummy.

    These plants do not use lakes for cooling, they use the ocean. Yeah it is a closed loop system, of course but if this hits a level 7, then guess what? Those of you who don`t think a closed loop system can breach at level 7 are just not in the know. And YES the "stuff" can flow in an ocean`s current attached to physical waste. You can bet on that. And yes radiation can attach itself to airborn gasses and dust like particles you idiots. Many forms of radiation have many ways to travel.

    As the saying goes: It ain`t necessarily so.

    Radiation radiates, but radioactive fallout can be moved by the wind. So you can get a cloud of fine radioactive material that is airborne and blown by the wind, which can spread out into a shape like this.

    It would require a major explosion and a containment breach, though, and that hasn`t happened in Japan.

    drating nuclear power, what a joke, chernobyl, this humans are just the quickest fix possible species, no worries about what happens later

    Nuclear power has killed fewer people than fossil fuel power. It`s relatively safe, though I question the wisdom of building nuclear power stations in an area that is so prone to earthquakes.

    Having said that, the power stations apparently withstood the earthquake itself, with the problem being caused by the tsunami breaking the main cooling system.

    Humanity now requires a lot of power to maintain itself. It has to be generated somehow and fossil fuels are a finite resource that is becoming more expensive to extract. We need a replacement. It isn`t optional. Nuclear power is going to have to be part of it.

    This is why I think we should have neuclear power plaants on secure platforms in the ocean, dont you think thats a good idea? Then if it starts to meltdown you have unlimited water to dump on it, your far from civilisation so the fallout is reduced and things like earthquakes wont affect it, plus you could move it wherever you wanted remotely if need be! just an idea =]

    Where are we to go?
    How can we survive?
    When the falling rain seems to cease we will all have to go.

    Where are we to go?
    How can we survive?
    When the falling rain seems to cease we will all go.
    We have built our lives without nature in mind.
    So that we`ve become the disease but we wont go.
    Those that survive can end with our life
    Peace will be returned
    We need to praise you
    Peace will first be revenged

    Once we used to hear but like footsteps appear
    now we have no fear and in turn will disappear
    We have built our lives without nature in mind
    So that we`ve become the disease but we wont go
    Those that survive can end with our life
    Peace will be returned
    We need to praise you
    Peace will first be revenged

    Reveneged...revenged...

    Too be honest, as a guy who likes arguing, some of the people I talked with recently proposed that the money going to Japan should be put into building a wall around it so the radiation doesn`t get to America.
    I`m not saying republicans are stupid. I`m just saying some of the stupidest people I`ve ever talked with were right wing, YEC, bible belt republicans.

    It`s the internet, people - I thought most sensible users could spot such an obvious fake.

    In replay to JaggyThistle message:
    "It`s the internet, people - I thought most sensible users could spot such an obvious fake."

    Let`s make an overview of the facts
    1. 6 cores of the plant are damaged many reporting failures on their cooling systems, as a last resort solution seawater is being dumped to them in an effort to cool them
    2. All 50 brave employees that where left behind to deal with the situation where taken back due to high amounts of radiation. (NONE is currently left behind)
    3. USA troops on north pacific have been found "light radiation sick" and have abandoned the general area
    4. The wind in the last few days is blowing from japan towards USA
    5. Many failed attempts to make people ignoring those facts (from people like you)

    U better think about it seriously

    This is a fake. Australian Radiation Services even announced that this chart was not authorized by them. There is a greater threat that western US citizens will be overusing potassium iodide pills because of this epic troll.

    BTW 750 rads would mean no survivors in that yellow area. That`s just not even possible.
