This is as idiotic a statement as those who think Japan's current situation is payback for Pearl Harbor.

99% of the people who had anything to do with Pearl Harbor, or the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, are dead. There is no payback of any kind to be had on either side.

people who think that are just dumb, im sorry. These are human beings trying to save where they were born and raised. How they are doing this after these events is just amazing. They will shutdown these reactors and everyone will be able to focus on building japan again.

And as they say old wounds heal with time. Those who were around more then likely wouldn't want payback anyways..

I know, it is ridiculous. Even a tiny bit of research on power outputs of both solar and wind shows that it is impossible as of now to use them as main power sources. The best part is while these people who claim to be for the environment attempt to block nuclear advancement they only harm the environment further while we burn more and more fossil fuels and coal to make up for the ever increasing need of energy.

All the idiots posting on FB and other various places saying it's payback/karma are annoying. We dropped 2 nukes on them and the estimated death toll was around 200k compared to the 2k+ in Pearl Harbor. I'm also fairly certain 100% of the people saying it weren't even born in that time.

Really, I guess I haven't really looked into Nuclear plants enough. Thanks for the info.

Everyone focuses on the nuclear bombings when it comes to atrocitiess commited by the US during WW2 but the fire bombing on Tokyo and other urban areas actually caused more casualties than the bombings on Nagasaki and Hiroshima, regardless nobody can say it was an honorable way to end the war.

I'm not sure if this piece of news is true or not so if someone could verify it pls post:

Quote:
Special USAF aircraft have detected large amounts of Radioactivity over the mid-north Pacific region. The radiation cloud could make landfall in western North America within 24 hours.

The WC-135 Constant Phoenix is a special purpose aircraft derived from the Boeing C-135 and used by the United States Air Force. Its mission is to collect samples from the atmosphere for the purpose of detecting and identifying nuclear explosions. It is also informally referred to as the “weather bird†or “the sniffer†by workers on the program.
-----------------------------------------------
100 members of the [Canadian Forces] Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) deployed to Vancouver BC, Canada,
Province of BC emergency program relocated to Kamploops
300 ICU beds made available in Vancouver and Victoria Hospitals
Scrubbing(decontamination washing) of long range surveillance aircraft at west coast and Hawaii Airbases
A tip from a reader: Sure sign of imminent radioactive fallout… milk dairies quit collecting milk for human consumption, this happened previously with large Soviet nuclear test and after Chernobyl.
