Paging Atomic Cow.......still think it's much ado about nothing?     :whistle:

Sorry for being a little rough on you, but this apparently has been going on for quite awhile and all along, it's been worse than reported.

Please talk [us] down here so we don't worry for nothing.

Not in the mood for a cheap insult today so don't expect any more replies.

And yes, I think the media has been fear mongering since day one.  The amount of material you'd have to dump into the ocean to cause any level of harm outside of the immediate area is so massive that it is physically impossible.

People need to stop hearing the word "radiation" and thinking it means the end of all life on Earth.

It wasn't meant as an insult in any manner.   Sorry you feel that way.

You had shown remarkable knowledge of nuclear power and was virtually the only one that was telling everybody they were overreacting.

And while it may not mean our sushi will be glowing in the dark....the Japanese have to live with it right in their own backyard.
