    Default Radiation Coming ``

    It will only be a question of time before we start seeing the true results of Japan's nuclear disaster - http://www.foxnews.com/science/2017/...ima-plant.html

    No surprise Joe. Look at Cheyrnoble . Still a no go dead zone for MANY miles surrounding that disaster.

    A couple of other articles on the subject.

    There does not appear to be any change in the containment of the reactors or radiation.

    Tepco is still deploying the next robot on March 1, since the est. 530 sieverts is limited to just one area of containment vessel 2. The robot should be able to complete the data capture as long as it doesn't get stuck in the hot spot.

    Also something to keep in mind when reading these radiation levels. The intensity of the radiation measured follows Newton's Inverse Square Law, and the intensity is inversely proportional to the distance from that melted fuel, or any other radiation source.

    So, the higher reading could be as simple as moving 125 ft closer to a source that was 200 ft from the initial measurements.

    I guess that is why they will be sending in more robots, and going over the readings & camera footage

    Cheyrnoble has become a haven for animals, no human interaction has actually allowed many at risk animals to build up their numbers with very minimal side effects, it has been quite interesting to see how nature evolves to deal with these type of problems.

    I saw the same documentary Fox. While it may have been a boost for wildlife I must ask, Would you eat a deer , boar ect , ect, from the hot zone..?? Would u live there with your wife and baby girl.?? We likely won't see the true long term èffects from Cheyrnoble for another 50 years and I guarantee that it won't be pretty.

    No I would not but I also have not evolved to live with the increases.

    What I was getting at is that the short generations of these smaller mammals has shown that evolution through the generations in the area have adapted to the changes without noticeable long term effects, very cool what nature does.

    Nature also greatly helps by making the average life expectancy of the type of mammals in this zone less than 10 years. If the deer, hogs, bears etc. lived to 75 or 80 like we do than you would likely see far more long term chronic effects kicking in. Fact is most mammals in nature die from other causes long before the radiation can get them.

    That is the reason they are doing so well, people will get horrific diseases but the mammals with a shorter life span will never get the diseases as they will already be dead. It is a forced sanctuary for these animals, numbers coming back of things that were on the verge of extinction in the area.

    Nuclear scientists have the knowledge to build reactors that are fail safe but until society demands that the ones in current use are replaced we will get more accidents like this where they melt down due to electrical problems/outages
