More "Don't ask, don't tell" from Fukushima

Here it is more than four months after the triple meltdown and explosions at the nuclear reactors in Fukushima, Japan, and the government of that country is only just now releasing the results of testing of radiation levels from air samples taken one meter above ground level. These tests weren't even conducted until the last week in June. Before that, there was testing done of soil, but not of the air above ground, through most of the country.

And guess what the new tests show. The air at one meter high is just as contaminated 90 miles away from Fukushima as it is 30 miles away.

They sure do break the bad news to you slowly over there.
