[Various] Japan Nuclear Emergency - Continuous Coverage of Damage and Radiation Risks - Page 119  

post #1181 of 2836
It's unfair to accuse me paranoid. At the moment details are unclear, and what people have been saying including CBC (just found this article) is that it won't be dangerous, however I have every right to take this concern seriously. You probably would if you lived here and knew if anything happened you would likely be the first hit.

It looks like a lot of you were wrong and there is in fact a possibility of potentially harmful radioactive fallout within the next 24 hours. I want to be sure first if this is true, if it will happen, and how dangerous it will be - before I hightail it to Calgary where I may have a place to stay.
Where you are at, you have nothing to worry about.

I will be in the first hit and there isn't anything that would hit that'd be dangerous think of an xray.... and secondly that news report is like a day or two old and hasn't been reported by any credible site.

I see nothing wrong with being cautious and i would not call it outright paranoia, Nuclear accidents are nothing to be shrugged off.

If you're in Vancouver, high tailing it to Calgary is not only paranoid, but probably only going to be marginally effective on the remote chance appreciable fallout does make it across the Pacific.

You are basically saying, "OK there is a fire 20 feet to my left, but I really don't want to be able to smell it, should I move another foot or two to my right?"

A few:
1 - the major cause of damage was the tsunami, the quake itself was off-shore, if you look at USGS charts the actual quake felt on land was only around 7, not low but the damage would certainly be a lot higher if it was on land.

2 - Each reactor functions as an independent unit in terms of safty, if redundant systems only failed at one reactor, you can say they were unlucky, but its statistically almost impossible for redundant systems fail in three disconnect systems unless there's bad engineering involved. The Japaness likes to talk about their quality standards but reality does not seem to agree with their claims.

3 - The levels of radiation detected 60 miles away from the reactor does not match the claims that only slightly radioactive steam were released into the atmosphere, the dust from the blewn outershell is the most likely canidate for the particulates and the levels detected indicate they were highly radioactive at time of explosion, again, this does not match with claims that radiation level at the site are within "legal limits".

Yup.

Anything is possible especially with this situation.

May I ask about the credibility of this? Is it true? Alternate news sources? Worst effects?
You got trolled. Sorry. The link that you clicked that sent you into a tizzy was blatantly false. If you read the thread back a bit it will show you that the source has absolutely no credit. No death clouds reported anywhere (yet?)

Okay, don't believe in it, don't take it seriously. That's your choice. What we don't know is how bad the radiation is (it's unfair to make statements like this because there hasn't been any confirmation of how bad it will be) and we do know that according to this article, the province itself is taking action and taking it seriously. More hospital beds, relocations, and stopping of dairy production is definitely a sign something's coming. The writer is asking for credible sources just as we are. Go find them.
