If I kept pouring salt into a glass of water eventually the water would become saltier and saltier because it had nowhere to go.

Actually if you keep pouring salt into water, the solution will quickly become saturated and the salt will simply collect at the bottom of the glass after forming a dynamic equilibrium.

Science FTW.

that is saturation, which applies to radiation in no way shape or form. chunky is correct, you are fail.

No one is "overhyping". This IS a big deal, no matter where you live in the world, whether you believe it is or not. It may not affect your health, but it will affect a myriad of other aspects of daily life. It's sickening to me that every time info is posted, legit or not, people attempt to shoot it down as "overhyping" or "sensationalizing". I don't know how something like this can just be shrugged of as insignificant and no big deal. This is the probably the biggest blow to nuclear energy in history, but yet, not a big deal somehow. This thread is kind of a joke if you look back and read it.

Yup, this is something serious. But most people who don't understand the severity will cause others to overreact. Social turmoil is worse then everyone getting bone cancer in their 70s.

I'm not saying that we should take this with a grain of salt or leave it to the "professionals" to take care of it. This is indeed something serious that we need to draw attention to.

That's like saying a blast of C4 is really bad when you're standing on top of the C4, so it will also eventually be bad for everyone really far away as well.

You apparently don't understand how radiation works. Which makes you look really dumb when you post stuff like this:

As Chunky Chimp said earlier, please quit trying to incite fear. The real problem with this thread is the fear-mongering coming from people who don't understand nuclear power or how radiation and half-lives work. The levels of radiation coming from this incident are 1/10th of Chernobyl.

If you're so smart about it to point out that I'm wrong, then explain it... how a radiation leak in an enclosed space would not keep accumulating radiation so how would "concentration gradient" would apply there and why everyone here twisted the article out of context because they they don't have the greatest reading comprehension.

Besides analyzing here facial expressions, can any expert or someone with knowledge about this subject dissect anything she said? Is she 100% correct/incorrect? Half-right/half-wrong?

Anyone?

She is 50% fear mongering and 50% sugar coating. Therefore the truth is open to interpretation depending whether you see the glass as half full or half empty.

The answer lies in the question.....is she being paid to promote a book? when it comes to nuclear energy we have extreme right and extreme left views with everybody so quick to yell fear mongering, which shows how childish they are that they have to label everything as simply black and white....the only way they can understand the world is to divide everything in two categories.

to bad they have another 500 plants on coasts and fault lines i can this happening to another plant. Tell me why in the * would you put it on the shore to begin with, let alone near a fault line?
