Our 9/11, their 3/11

The Japanese are now six months into the worst nuclear disaster in history. And the pain is nowhere near over.

Jack - it seems that Japan has their problem under control, and are aware of the challenges ahead. This is fast becoming a non-issue. You need to learn a little more about science of Nuclear Energy, and the progress we have made in making it even safer. If you admitted to yourself that, no matter what, you would be against any Nuclear Materials being used anywhere for anything your little opinions would be taken for what they are - opinion - but I doubt, if the need arose you would skip having a PET Scan, Nuclear Medicine Study, CT Scan of MRI if asked by you Doctor. You wouldn't want to be a hypocrite after all.

Dude...under control?

Mark Gravengaard, it appears that you make a living in the nuclear industry, working for J. Gravengaard Corp., in nuclear medicine. That may give you superior knowledge (although funny thing, you guys can't even seem to get your phones to work), but it also makes you prone to twisting people's words and lying through your teeth. Those are hallmarks of your filthy industry.

Japan does not have it problems under control, as anyone can plainly see.

This isn't about nuclear medicine, and you can leave that same comment here 100 times and it won't make it so.

Worst. Nuclear. Disaster. Ever.

This would be a good time for nuclear shills to lie low. You look foolish.

Japan's death industry is thriving, as described in this Reuters piece, which does not, however, mention any increase in the mortality rate owing to Fukushima:

"In 2010, according to government records, 1.2 million people passed away, giving the country and [sic] annual death rate of 0.95 percent versus 0.84 percent in the United States, which is also the global average.

The rate of deaths is on the increase. Last year, there were an extra 55,000 dead and over the past decade, an average of 23,000 more people have died each year in Japan."


"A niche that the yakuza have slipped into is as brokers who introduce funeral homes to hospitals, said one funeral director, who declined to be identified. That role alone can pull in millions of dollars in commissions."

We may be observing the dissolution of Japanese society; Fukushima may be a precipitating event in terms not only of destruction and death but also distrust of elected and corporate leadership.
