A Fukushima symposium at Willamette

Those of us who can't believe that the greatest nuclear disaster of all time is getting so little media coverage can at least watch some talking heads who ruminated about it in a public program over the weekend. The complete videos (including cameo appearances by legendary Oregon anti-nuke Lloyd Marbet) are here. The first anniversary of the start of the triple meltdown is just a couple of weeks away.

Same subject on NPR's Fresh Air today, always a great show:


Tokyo underground measures as contaminated as the Fukushima evacuation zone.

At that news, Veterans Today called for removing all USA military persons from Tokyo base and Japan entirely, and for verterans and military organizations to pressure Washington D.C. not to abandon the now-injured troops to die suffering radiation poisoning in a foreign country.

Evacuate Tokyo and All US Forces From Japan - Tokyo Radiation Level 25 Times the Fukushima Mandatory Evacuation Zone, by Bob Nichols, Veterans Today, February 25th, 2012

Let's see if America's military voice raises awareness of the clear and present danger in more than "so little media coverage" of the situation.

I believe I heard LarsLarson say his stepson is stationed over there now.
If the personnel stationed and exposed there return here carrying radioaction contamination, should they ever be allowed to enter public places or kept in quarantine?

uh, I meant to say "radiation contamination".

And I meant to mention that Tokyo is 100 miles from Fukushima.
