Some particles decay quickly others like plutonium has a half-life of 24,000 years. It is very expensive and takes a long time to clean up an entire town.

Oh I am aware of the consequences of containment leaks... but this is no Chernobyl.

Actually, some have said it could be worse due to all the spent fuel rods stored above reactors.

... that is for the sake of holding on to viewership. To even try and compare the two is beyond ignorant. Please don't regurgitate things like this that you hear on T.V/Radio because it is exactly what I had said earlier, sensationalism.

This is a great find though. It is crazy to see him driving into a disaster zone.

I have a problem with people believing everything they hear on the media and repeating that information to everyone they know.

Where do you get your news from, as a matter of fact I believe the media is doing the opposite and not telling us the real situation.

Sounds like you are in denial about the whole situation out there.

Even if no one knows one way or another now so why say anything of that sort at all?

Why don't you fly to japan and drive around Fukushima with a geiger counter like they did and then report back to us?

I promise I will believe you.
