The Chernobyl explosion was absolutely nothing compared to this, and now for me to disprove you with more evidence


The towers you see in this video are almost exactly 1000s ft tall
The explosion measures around 3000+ ft in a matter of seconds.

Lets hear the disinformation
That was the pumping system and not the reactor exploding. Again, you're posting FUD.

I've done a LOT of research on Chernobyl and the Fukushima issue does not share the same similarities in scope. The impact will be most notable within 50-75 miles whereas the impact of Chernobyl was seen for thousands of miles, and even then the radiation spread to the USA from Chernobyl were negligable.

your are uneducated and mis-informed
a bomb expends all its fuel and hardly releases any radiation.

A nuclear power plant has a very very slim chance of exploding and instead goes though a meltdown process letting off high amounts of radiation.

But again people are commenting and they really have no clue about nuclear physics

If you think radiation is harmless you are a moron, all radiation is harmful.

Radiation is extremely fast small moving particles that disrupt your cells on a vibrational frequency.
Yes, while all types of ionizing radiation are not "good" things, they aren't necessarily bad. Your body has mechanisms in place to deal with the constant exposure to radiation. These mechanisms correct the hundreds or thousands of DNA mutations that occur every single day. It's actually pretty difficult to cause the necessary mutations to cause cancer. Not only must the right genes be mutated, the necessary genes should remain intact and the genes for certain safety mechanisms should be inactivated.
While I haven't seen an article specifying the amounts of ionizing radiation emitted from the plant and how it will be distributed, I am assuming it isn't going to be an issue based on what I have seen.

Now if you come at us with some numbers and facts instead of just "oh radiation is bad for you, hurp durp Fox News", then we will take your claims seriously. Until then, start stocking up on iodine buddy.

In conclusion, I propose that it is you who is the uneducated one.

If you did do alot of research you would agree

Nope your posting fud.....

Look at the picture , look at the video, study history, use some common sense, look at the amount of nuclear material. I mean do you really believe thats a 3,000 ft hydrogen explosion , and even if it is, its not big deal? i mean really? honestly do you really believe that. I mean i really want to know if your that gullible
Remember the oil spill....

No leak
5,000 GPH
10,000 GPH
15,000 GPH
etc...

And i was the first to post about the internet caps on OCN Remember or should i pull that thread up too...

Does your brain not have the ability do break down scientific information

Or do i need to point out that the united states has not posted radiation readings since this happened? I mean were is the debate, the real scientific debate.... i mean whats going on. You people arnt concerned? at all? really? i mean really? are you that dumb.... to not ask your self why they have posted the readings yet.... Japan released a few readings... and they are some what scary... i mean i have been refreshing drudge report, cnn, watching you tube video, going over scientific information. All you can do is post a ridiculous comment , when iam doing this for you, iam warning you.



VIENNA, March 17 (Reuters) - Low concentrations of radioactive particles from Japan's disaster-hit nuclear power plant have been heading eastwards and are expected to reach North America in days, a Swedish official said on Thursday.

In Washington, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) said radioactivity would disperse over the long distance and it did not expect any harmful amounts to reach the country.

"We expect the United States to avoid any levels of harmful radiation," NRC spokesman Joey Ledford told Reuters. "We do not anticipate any threat to American interests."

The Swedish official, research director Lars-Erik De Geer of the Swedish Defence Research Institute, was citing data from a network of international monitoring stations set up to detect signs of any nuclear weapons tests.

Also stressing the levels were not dangerous for people, he predicted particles would eventually also continue across the Atlantic and reach Europe.

"It is not something you see normally," he said by phone from Stockholm, adding the results he now had were based on observations from earlier in the week. But, "it is not high from any danger point of view."

De Geer said he was convinced they would eventually be detected over the whole northern hemisphere.

"It is only a question of very, very low activities so it is nothing for people to worry about," De Geer said.

"In the past when they had nuclear weapons tests in China ... then there were similar clouds all the time without anybody caring about it at all," he said.

TOWARDS EUROPE?

De Geer said the main air movement in the northern half of the globe normally went from west to east, but suggested the direction occasionally changed and at times turned.

In Geneva, the U.N.'s World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) said on Thursday that a "northwesterly winter monsoon flow prevails over the eastern and northern part of Japan" and that this was expected to remain the case until around midnight GMT.

The New York Times earlier said a forecast of the possible movement of the radioactive plume showed it churning across the Pacific, and touching the Aleutian Islands on Thursday before hitting southern California late on Friday.

It said the projection was made by the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO), a Vienna-based independent body for monitoring possible breaches of the test ban.

The CTBTO has more than 60 stations around the world which can pick up very low levels of radioactive particles such as caesium and iodine isotopes.

It continuously provides data to its member states, including Sweden, but does not make the details public.

De Geer said he believed the radioactive particles would "eventually also come here".

The New York Times said health and nuclear experts emphasized radiation would be diluted as it travelled and at worst would have extremely minor health consequences in the United States.

In a similar way, radiation from the Chernobyl disaster in 1986 spread around the globe and reached the west coast of the United States in 10 days, its levels measurable but minuscule. (Additional reporting by David Morgan in Washington; editing by Diana Abdallah)

Also lucky that it's not a harmful dose of radiation yet.. although I suppose if it got worse it would help if this was the path still


Wouldn't help hawaii

Glad I didn't stay on a nuclear engineering path for my mechanical engineering degree. That industry just went to ****.
Correct, this is very sad. Nuclear is a VERY efficient form of power generation. It's very sad that all these hippies are so misinformed about the truth of nuclear energy. The media is going around telling people nuclear energy is dangerous, and they make nuclear energy supporters appear to be crazy maniacs who have a death wish.

The fact is, there has NEVER been a death resulting form a nuclear incident in the US as far as I know.
