If you think things are cool over there and "out of the water" your an idiot. We are not getting strait info from japan or the japanese government. We better be focusing some spy satellites at japan about now and monitoring the radiation levels for ourselves. If your in japan, Leave now.
Chernobyl Cleanup Survivor's Message for Japan: 'Run Away as Quickly as Possible'
What Skripka said. Check your sources before posting. Also, enough fearmongering. Yes, fearmongering. You said you were "shot down for it". Well, let me shoot another bullet then:
Detectable =/= harmful; Chernobyl survivor =/= nuclear expert.
Leave Japan? Are you REALLY suggesting that?
If you want to be taken seriously, put some effort into gathering relevant & unbiased information and refrain from calling people idiots (at least out loud
Who knows, your opinion itself might take a 180 degree turn in the process - mine often does when I dig for info on various topics.
Also, some cover-up is always to be expected - I'd go so far as to say it's essential. Exactly how would it help if the operators listed every single possibility of something going wrong? How would it help if they started releasing loads of technical info that only ~0,001% of the world's population could understand?
The masses do not need to know the details, because fearmongers will just get a ton of info to manipulate and use to spread panic with. It's times like these that people's morale must be kept as high as possible. While some degree of honesty is crucial(especially when it concerns international matters), releasing too much info will NOT help the situation - it'll just make it worse.Edited by Hyoketsu - 4/17/11 at 4:01pm
