    Hiroshima and Nagasaki were cities, that were destroyed by means of nuclear bombs. fudgeushima is the name of a nuclear power plant, not a city. Seriously... IAB needs a fact checker or something. Also, there have been quite a few nuclear spills and contaminations between then and now... japan hasn`t had to deal with it all.

    don`t know whats going on but japan are acting a little out of touch with this one. the good news is they have loads of people working their asses off to fix this asap, and even if it did meltdown then it would be a tiny radioactive event compared to Chernobyl (which is a list of everything you shouldn`t do in a nuclear meltdown) and the likelyhood of it harming any humans would be tiny thanks to it`s location in Japan.

    Oh no! A Japanese news report is in Japanese with Kanji subtext. STOP EVERYTHING! Get this guy some English, because everyone everywhere should speak English! Especially the Japanese right now.

    Seriously, though, who cares? You get your precious explosion, right?

    No, It will not be another `Chernobyl`, the reactor is a different design. Fuel rods can melt but they likely will not loose containment like Chernobyl did.

    To all those who misread the intention. I did not put "Uh OH:" One of the mods did. The rest I wrote and since my wife is sansei and has relatives in Tokyo the implication was genuine. It just seems they get all the worst poisoning from nuclear explosions than any other country in it`s history. It basically blows.

    No, it won`t.

    Chernobyl was a badly designed plant that was badly maintained and used for a bad experiment with badly trained operators who were badly misled by the bad diagnostics from the badly designed plant that was being used for something it wasn`t meant to be used for - a bad decision. The incident was badly mishandled by the Soviet authorities, which made it much worse.

    None of those things apply here. It`s very unlikely that containment will be breached at all, let alone as it was at Chernobyl.

    Angilion says, "No, it won`t." (be another Chernobyl)

    Well it is a level four out of seven a few hours ago...lets see your opinion in twelve hours Angilion! Only time will tell, not you. I hope you are right but my stomach says you are wrong.

    Furthermore, This power plant is the same age, if not a little older than the setup in Chernobyl. Does that fact not raise a few eye brows?

    Chernobyl was due to human error NOT by the hands of evil scientists, evil electrical engineers and evil politicians. The horrific facts were slowly realized by the world public, true.

    Perhaps the Japanese are holding back as I type this. Perhaps today we are already at level 7 in Japan? Who knows? We`ll find out soon enough.

    It`s not a linear scale.

    Level 4 is a minor release of radioactive material that has a local effect only and is unlikely to need anything more than local food control measures.

    Level 7 is a massive release of radioactive material over a very large area, probably involving multiple countries, widespread long-term health effects, etc.

    Three Mile Island, in which noboby died, rates a 5 on the Ines scale.

    Just because its as old doesn`t mean its as poorly built. I highly doubt that you would want to cover up a nuclear disaster, as the discovery of such a thing by the public, which would be inevitable, would cause entropy beyond comprehension. Its in -everyone`s- best interest that the authorities on this subject be forthcoming, and seeing as they say there is little to no danger, I`m not worried.

    LuckyDave, you are a fantastic optimist!

    The only thing that is inevitable is LIES. This “situation” is a “sign-post” of man`s weakness...well repeated over time...take a look at the past two centuries?

    Do I need to take you back to the industrial revolution, when ALL technology was grand? Was it so grand after-all?

    The science/things that hurt or hindered primitive “humans” are “the sources” of our future! The sun, the wind and the rain. Massively, “we are” still ignorant of our own natural potential.

    “Just because...highly doubt...such a thing...be forthcoming...seeing as they say...”

    WHO WROTE THAT?

    Your statements are an “Epic Fail” by the “terms” of the internet! Who ever wrote that poo was a dick.

    Tramp, I wrote those words, yes, I did my research instead of following my gut and no, being older does not automatically make you right. If we all die, we all die, there is not much we can do about it. Build a nuclear shelter? I don`t have the money for that, so I`m JWF should Armageddon decide it wants to arrive tomorrow.
    Those who are in charge of other people`s safety, the people who are paid to help run the reactors, who have run them without error until a Tsunami hit, say there is not much danger; I`m sorry but I tend to trust someone in that position. The past two centuries? Why yes, lets look back to Chernobyl, much more recent and an incident you have quoted. In said incident, in a country where communism and lies ruled, they quickly evacuated two cities to get away from the radiation. They did not sugar coat it, they told people to "get out, you`re in danger." But you think I`m probably just running my mouth, the only thing inevitable is lies after all...

    From reuters:

    Apparently, over 30 American Nuclear `experts` are now in Japan. I hope the USA dudes can help. It would be nice to "cap" the situation and turn it in the other direction. My concern is how people downplay such an event. I don`t think people should live in fear but humans have much to be ashamed of. It looks like my gut feeling has been correct again.

    Who knows, Chernobyl might get beat out by this event? I never said it would but what gives people the nerve to say it will not. That is just whacky.

    If you do not like the presentation of "these" events in the "media", perhaps keep your eyes on the ISIS webpage. I`m certain those folks are delivering the straight facts; no more, no less.
