Man, This just keeps getting crazier and crazier by the minute.

SkyNewsBreak (http://twitter.com/#!/SkyNewsBreak) reported a bit sensationalistically that radioactive iodine has been detected in Glasgow (Scotland) and Oxfordshire, England.

Take it with a pinch of salt though. I'm sure a) you can't trace the source, and b) someone else in the 6,000 miles or so inbetween Fukushima and Glasgow might have noticed it first

Does the video show proof? At work, so I can't watch it at the moment. If so, and the government has been lying about it.... all I have to say is, I told you so!

Big deal. Of course small amounts of radiation will reach around the world from this incident. As long as it's not anywhere close to harmful levels, it doesn't really matter.

I don't doubt there is information being withheld, but I'd like to know if there is any proof too. They show tangled wreckage of what looks like support structures.

Lol 02, I felt the same way about the article before the video.

Here's something else to chew on, though again, there's no proof:
Quote:
The radioactive core in a reactor at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant appears to have melted through the bottom of its containment vessel and on to a concrete floor, experts say, raising fears of a major release of radiation at the site.
Quote:
"The indications we have, from the reactor to radiation readings and the materials they are seeing, suggest that the core has melted through the bottom of the pressure vessel in unit two, and at least some of it is down on the floor of the drywell," Lahey said. "I hope I am wrong, but that is certainly what the evidence is pointing towards."

Even if it is true its come to the UK, I have enough sense to know it is not a major danger.

In the video about 3/4 the way in they have an expert giving details on each of the reactors. In one of the shots he shows the green crane pancaked onto the reactor.

Take it for what it's worth, but if I was Japan at this point I would evacuated everything north of Tokyo and possibly start making plans on how to evacuate Tokyo itself. I may be over reacting but I don't want to see what happened to the people in Pripyat, happen to the people in Tokyo.

Watch the video about 6 or 7 posts up and you will have a total rundown of each reactor.
