Ya I said that while yes they can't hide it all together I saw on the news last night that even some Japanese citizens and newcasters there think that their government isn`t telling them the whole story. I myself even though they`re saying it`s no major amounts of radiation wouldn`t want to be anywhere near there.

@Mildcorma I don't think you understand how radiation sickness works.

"It`s not a bad radioactive mix, it won`t make you sick nor will it cause any long term harm but it`s a precaution should be taken as there is no point in putting people at risk where there does not need to be any."

It`s a statistical thing, background radiation can give you cancer. Any increase, increases the risk of serious long term harm.

goaliejerry: The fudgeushima plant has breakwaters offshore, there are angled jetties out in the sea to help deflect tsunami waves, and the plant is built on a bluff over 20 feet above the high tide line.

It had survived several large storm surges before this without a problem. This tsunami was 30 ft. that's rather extraordinary.

madest: The 'Big Oil` subsidies you are complaining about are for the very `green energy` projects you claim to want. BP, Shell, Phillips, and others are installing windmills and solar energy plants to appear to be green and get those subsidies.

So make up your mind do you want windmills via `big oil` being subsidized to install them or do you still want your red herring argument against them ?
