The Japan Disaster

10 posts in this topic

This is really a sad series of events. Those power plant workers are risking their lives to get that nuclear plant under control. Traces of radiation has already made it to Chicago O'Hare Intl Airport. Travelers coming in from Japan on Wednesday triggered radiation detectors at O'Hare International Airport as they passed through customs. In one instance, radiation was detected in a plane's air filtration system. Radiation was also found in luggage and on passengers on flights from Japan

radiation reaches California.

Small traces of radiation have been detected in the skies of Sacramento, CA and elsewhere. So far the amount of radiation is too small to harm anyone but things may get worse if they don't get that nuclear plant under control. If the winds are strong enough to move radiation from Japan to California, it could spread across the country

radiation has also been detected on the SS Ronald Reagan in San Diego.

Welcome to the new apocolypse - Nuclear fallout, a new war of religion, and government control. Only, the fun special effects stuff doesn't happen, we all don't die immediately and all instead have to learn to live in this new age. Instead of worrying that Mad Max is going to come lob your head off, you are worried that somewhere, sometime in the furture, you are going to die of cancer. Not knowing is sometimes even worse.

May you live in interesting times...well, these times, they are interesting.

btw looks like a new war has started. It will be interesting to see how Russia and China reacts since they are against the U.S. and its allies attacking Lybia. We just may be on the brink of World War III.

traces of radiation from the Japan disaster has now reached the east coast of the United States. Progress Energy has detected small amounts in Raleigh, NC. Radiation has also been found in rain water in Massachusetts. However currently the radiation poses no health threat. My concern is if the disaster gets worse and the nuclear plant spews out more radiation at higher intense levels, those levels could get higher in the United States. Radiation in rain water is really a concern because thats the source of our drinking water. Radioactive gamma causes sterility in men, not to mention cancer. I don't trust what scientists or the government says because first they said NO radiation would reach the United States. Its obvious they are trying not to panic the public.

But isn't it a VERY small amount? It would need to be at a much higher level for it to do any sort of damage here in the US and even with a meltdown I highly doubt it would reach anything above a trace here in the US.
