    I understan where you are coming from Merc, IMHO we are here to serve and at the same time respect the free will of others that makes our work rather interesting. Kind of having two hands tied up and a foot too lol

    But I am under the impression that not choosing is a choice, the choice to let other choose by voting and hence empowering the politicians to do as they please

    Still it is a choice that has to be respected and we can only do our very best to assist when possible, when it is allowed

    Perhaps all these hardship will have a silver lining for those that are still sleeping, perhaps it will no longer be a priority to catch up with the Jones' as we say in the UK and perhaps the impending radiation threat will assist those that are sleeping to re-evaluate their priorities

    All the other harrowing things that happened in this past decade were soon forgotten because they did not affect the developed world where most of the people live, but now it seems that the core of humanity might have chosen a situation which involves all of the developed world

    Today radiation has been found in milk in France so it is spreading around already

    Thank you for the time you spend answering, it is always enlightening Flowers

    During the aftermath...watching this is utterly amazing and surreal...this was posted April 6th, 2011.


    "Fukushima, Japan - The Japanese government has issued the evacuation order on March 12 for the residents living within the 20 kilometer radius of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.

    Since then, residents have left their homes, and the "no man land" has been out of touch with the rest of the world.

    A Japanese journalist, Tetsuo Jimbo, ventured through the evacuation zone last Sunday, and filed the following video report.

    He says that, inside the evacuation zone, homes,building, roads and bridges, which were torn down by Tsunami, are left completely untouched, and the herd of cattle and pet dogs, left behind by the owners, wonders around the town while the radiation level remains far beyond legal limits."

    Low Levels of Ionizing Radiation May Cause Harm

    a report from June 29, 2005
    WASHINGTON -- A preponderance of scientific evidence shows that even low doses of ionizing radiation, such as gamma rays and X-rays, are likely to pose some risk of adverse health effects, says a new report from the National Academies' National Research Council.

    This is a very good aerial (reference) photo of Japan's Fukushima nuclear reactor: radioactive leaks from - 7 April 2011 Last updated at 07:35 ET

    As work continues to bring the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant back under control, Reactors 2 and 3, are the most likely sources for the main leaks of radioactivity.

    LEVEL 7

    11 April 2011 Last updated at 23:46 ET

    Japan: Nuclear crisis level raised to highest level

    Japanese authorities have raised the measure of severity of their nuclear crisis to the highest level, officials say.

    The decision was taken due to radiation measured at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi power plant, NHK reported.

    The highest level for nuclear accidents (seven) had previously only applied to the Chernobyl disaster in 1986.

    Meanwhile a 6.3-magnitude earthquake was reported off eastern Japan, the second tremor in as many days.

    The aftershocks come a month after a huge quake and tsunami hit Japan, leaving nearly 28,000 dead or missing.
    Impact of leaks

    An official from the Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan announced that the crisis level at the Fukushima Daiichi plant was being raised in a televised statement, adding that it was a preliminary assessment that was subject to confirmation by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

    The level seven signifies a "major accident" with "wider consequences" than the previous level, officials say.

    "We have upgraded the severity level to seven as the impact of radiation leaks has been widespread from the air, vegetables, tap water and the ocean," said Minoru Oogoda of Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency (Nisa), the government's nuclear watchdog.

    One official from the Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco), which operates the nuclear plant, said that radiation leaks had not stopped completely and could eventually exceed those at Chernobyl, Reuters news agency reported.

    However, a nuclear safety agency spokesman told reporters the leaks were still small compared to those at the plant in Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union.

    "In terms of volume of radioactive materials released, our estimate shows it is about 10% of what was released by Chernobyl," he said.

    The decision to raise the threat level was made after radiation of 10,000 terabequerels per hour had been estimated at the stricken plant for several hours.

    That would classify the crisis at level seven on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (Ines).

    It was not clear when that level had been reached. The level has subsequently dropped to less than one terabequerel an hour, reports said.
    Evacuations extended

    The severity level of Japan's nuclear crisis has so far been set at five, the same as that of the accident at Three Mile Island in the US in 1979.

    Japan has also said it is extending the evacuation zone around the crippled nuclear plant because of radiation concerns.

    The zone will be widened to encompass five communities beyond the existing 20-km (12-mile) radius, following new data about accumulated radiation levels, officials said.

    Japan's nuclear commission said that according to preliminary results, the cumulative level of external radiation exceeded the yearly limit of 1 millisieverts in areas extending more than 60 kms (36 miles) to the north-west of the plant and about 40 km to the south-southwest.

    On Monday, a 7.1-magnitude quake hit north-east Japan, leaving three people dead. It also triggered a brief tsunami warning, and forced workers to evacuate the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

    Tuesday's quake rocked buildings in the capital, Tokyo.

    There were no immediate reports of fresh damage, though Japan's Narita international airport temporarily closed its runways, and metro and train services were interrupted.

    The cooling systems at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant were damaged in last month's disaster and workers have been struggling to prevent several reactors from overheating.

    Officials have warned it will be several months before the situation at the nuclear facility is brought fully under control.

    Tepco said on Tuesday that a fire had broken out briefly at Reactor 4, before being extinguished.

    The official death toll from the disaster is 13,130, while 13,718 remain unaccounted for. More than 150,000 people have been made homeless.

    Futaba village is located near Fukushima Daiichi Plant and People evacuated after the nuclear accident on March 11th 2011. The radiation level in Futaba-cho is about 30 micro Sievert per hour, which is 30 - 40 times higher that the normal natural background level. You don't risk your live by just staying there for several hours. but it's impossible to live for the time being.

    The most contamination are considered Iodine 131 (half-life 8.1 days) and Cesium 134 (half-life 2.06 years ), which radioactivity will disappear in 10 years. But if the area is much contaminated with Cesium 137, it's more serious as the half-life of Cesium 137 is 30 years and it will take 150 years until the radiation level drops to normal.

    Burgundia, many people asked about the dog...and I read that he was rescued. The whole video just breaks my heart, what a mess. My son's Japanese friends are all from Fukushima, but all of them were in Atlanta (they are Georgia Tech alumni) or they were on vacation! Of course, all of those young people's families will never be the same. And now, today, another 6.0 quake right at the nuclear plant location exactly. This is surreal. Should we start offering to shelter people from Japan? There are hundreds of thousands of people who can't go home for years, maybe never. What if that were us? Would we expect other countries to take us in? Linda

    I would like to think that wherever these people go, that they are warmly welcomed. It is so difficult to go to another country, with another language. I did it in my early 30's and I couldn't imagine how hard it would be for anyone that age or older. I would be willing to offer a place to stay to a woman or married couple. Thing is, it is difficult to get started in the States now, as we have so many more business and personal restrictions and so forth.

    Currently -Japan is the worlds third largest economy; the entire world is going to feel the effects of this environmental catastrophe...

    ***********

    Japan's government downgrades its outlook for growth


    The earthquake and tsunami caused widespread damage to Japan's north-east coast

    The Japanese government has downgraded its assessment of the economy in the wake of the devastation caused by last month's earthquake and tsunami.

    It said key areas of the economy, including industrial production and exports, would suffer.

    It marks the first time in six months that the government has downgraded its assessment.

    On Monday, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) cut its forecast for Japanese growth.

    "The economy is showing weakness recently due to the influence of the Great East Japan earthquake," the Japanese government said in its monthly economic report.

    Downward direction

    The damage caused to the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant has seen a shortfall of power supplies in Japan.

    That has resulted in rolling blackouts, affecting production at some of the country's biggest companies.

    The government has warned of the negative impact of the power shortage.

    It has cut its assessment of the country's exports, saying shipments may decline as manufacturers battle to get their production lines back to full capacity.

    The Japanese economy had already been struggling to come out of the global financial crisis before the earthquake and tsunami hit its north-east coast.

    Analysts say the twin natural disasters have set back that recovery process even further.

    "The condition of the economy is no longer flat or at a standstill, but rather the direction is downward," said Shigeru Sugihara, director of macroeconomic analysts at the cabinet office.

    Nuclear crisis


    A month after the quake, engineers are still trying to stop Fukushima's reactors from overheating


    Japan's problems have been made worse by the uncertainty surrounding the developments at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

    On Tuesday, Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency raised the severity of the crisis at the plant to level 7.

    This level was previously applied to the 1986 Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine.

    The move prompted fears that the situation at the Japanese plant may be worsening.

    However, Japan's prime minister Naoto Kan has allayed those fears.

    "Step by step, the reactors in the Fukushima Daiichi power plant are moving toward stability." Mr Kan said.

    "People should not fall into an extreme self-restraint mood. They should live life as normal," he added.

    this was just sent to me; it is a very tragic and a sad reality to this catastrophe...

    Note this video might be difficult to watch for some here.

    ***********


    "Earlier this April we made our way to Fukushima to do some investigative reporting of the current conditions in the five- to ten-kilometer area around the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant. This is the first in a series of articles where we will report our findings from our time on the ground in Fukushima.

    The location for our first story is a ranch in Namie, a town located 10 kilometers from the nuclear plant. Here, instead of the lively sounds of farmers going about their daily work, the air is filled with the desperate cries of abandoned cattle. Going to the barn to investigate, we found that over half the cattle in every pen were dead, and the rest were letting out heartbreaking cries for help as they stood among the corpses.


    As of April 11th this ranch falls within the 20 kilometer evacuation zone enacted by the Japanese government, and is considered to be at risk of reaching radioactive levels significantly higher than those of other areas. As a result, the owner and staff of the ranch have all taken refuge elsewhere, leaving no one to provide the cattle food and water.

    We can therefore presume that the cattle are dying of thirst and starvation, though the precise cause of the deaths has yet to be determined.

    Normally, the cattle are able to use their nose to push a pedal that releases water at a drinking hole in the barn. However, no water came out when we tried for ourselves, suggesting that the water supply has been stopped.

    By coincidence, we ran into some residents of Namie who knew of the situation and had prepared water and a little feed for the cows. However, they said they were only on their way to gather belongings from their home to prepare for evacuation, and that they would be leaving the town within the day.

    At this rate, the remaining cows will most likely die within a few days unless someone can come to give them food and water regularly—even so, it is unclear when it will be safe for residents of Namie to return to their homes.

    We can understand why the staff, fearing radiation poisoning, would flee and feel it unsafe to come back to tend to their cattle. We have no intentions of blaming the farmers, and understand that people must give priority to their own safety. Still, the sight of these abandoned animals was all too tragic.

    Even now, the starving cattle can only wait for whichever comes to greet them first: the humans that abandoned them, or death."

    I agree Gio, 100%. Abandoned animals just show you what some people are like...there were othe videos with cows roaming the streets and grazing on grass. I guess some set them free before leaving.

    This is such a tragedy . How could one do this ?
    In another video I saw a farmer saying people were leaving
    but that he decided to stay with his cattle .
    Different levels of responsability and consciousness lead to
    situations that are hard to understand .
    Very sad .
