Is saying the sky is falling to promote themselves and do disservice to the truth.
If one goes to "Scientific American" and reads the blog of the nuclear expert, one will see that while there may be some issues with radioactivity, on the whole, the issue is not as dangerous as the media portrays it. Of course if they just give the facts, then it is boring. They have to play up the scare factor to boost their ratings.
The truth is Chernobyl was worse and now their is wildlife thriving around the plant. Not safe for humans yet, but not as bad as the way the media portrayed it at the time. Like it was going to be hundreds of years before anything could survive in the area.
Lots of serious issues to be resolved in Japan, but we will not have a nuclear holocast as the media and environmental extremists are running around trying to portray.
We have the technology to make new nuclear power plants exponentially safer, but nothing is 100%. More people will die in car accidents this year than those seriously affected healthwise, by the nuclear power plants in Japan.
It was some dude in England I believe, who said it best. " There is nothing to fear but fear itself". We have plenty to fear from the media.
A nuke plant coming to a neighborhood near you. Four nuclear meltdowns possible in Japan. Would be catastrophic to see how the whole island of Japan would be evacuated, and where would these millions go. Australian maybe?
There is a nuclear powerplant not that far from me. Not scared. More afraid of all the smokers that I work around. In fact you have a 400% chance of getting cancer and dying if you smoke and less than a 40% chance of getting cancer and dying if exposed to the levels of radiations seen by the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, according to one nuclear scientist.
