    Disasters tend to be disastrous.

    And another talking head video of a guy patently NOT qualified to talk on the matter of nuclear accidents. Again the bullpoo of zirconium fuel cladding spontaneously igniting on contact with air. (Hit, its an alloy that requires massively raised temperatures unlikely to still be present in the core)

    Then there is the whole matter of the nosebleeds. Not an unusual symptom in any case and very unlikely to be caused by radiation. (another hint, radiation hasn`t been documented to cause nosebleeds and only mild other symptons in ANY of the very extensive research on the matter)

    The other reported symptoms can simply not be caused by radiation poisoning. All the research there is shows very clearly that those kinds of symptoms would mean severe radiation poisoning of a kind only possible with direct exposure to a potent source. (IE bath in the cooling water runoff for a few hours)

    When it comes to leaks, we`re all in the same boat.

    @ferdyfred, I have no doubt anybody is going to believe. Believe it if you will, or dont: I`m an engineer with quite a bit of nuclear safety training working in a related area of expertise.

    Just do a bit of reading on all the claims made, and be critical about the sources you believe. You`ll come to the same conclusions I made.

    One of the symptoms they`re claiming is `dullness`

    Id have to say this video expresses plenty evidence of dullness, so it must be legit, lol.

    This is such a tragedy. Just yesterday Prime Minister Shinzo Abe begged the worlds scientists for help. We need a new Manhattan Project on how to put the genie back into the bottle. If nothing is done, there will come a day when swimming in the Pacific Ocean will kill you. No more Nuclear. Stop the madness.

    @Madest, you could dissolve ALL the fuel (Both spent and fresh) present at the fudgeushima Daiichi site and dissolve it in the oceans and it would barely raise detectable levels of radiation. And we can detect the decay of a single atom. It wouldn`t even BEGIN to raise the radiation levels to even remotely dangerous levels.

    I`m 50/50 on this whole deal. I feel terribly for the people of Japan who are living with the consequences of the earthquake/reactor meltdown, but I do not think it is going to affect the rest of the world nearly as much as people claim.
    For example, this Wasserman fellow talking in the video is a journalist. Why the hell would I EVER listen to a journalist about a scientific phenomenon? Of course he`s going to play up the danger and "wow factor" of the story, he wants people to get all uppity and concerned and flock to his website/publication for information.
