    Zichi...not a person attack at all.

    Just whenever anyone highlights fossil fuels in Japan. You talk about every other countries use of fossil fuels. Which is irrelevant and designed to deflect from the death and destruction that the switch to coal in Japan has caused. Not once have you said it's unacceptable that this happens. Ybut you do constantly claim that it doesn't happen in Japan.

    The nuclear accident got into the ground. The ai and food. But at what levels. At what risl to health. Your statements are sweeping. Yes it's in the Pacific but it's 1 percent of the total radiation in that ocean. It's in the food but as has been proven numerous times before not at levels that are hazardous to health. And substantially lower than that is from your home country.

    Your argument is nuclear is bad. It's on a par with saying per die when they fly.

    Safest form of travel. Safest form of power.

    Guy, you have to remember that Zichi is of the belief that Japanese coal is different. Fossil fuels from other countries are dangerous but Japanese ones aren't. He also seems to be of the opinion that people don't die in Japan from fossil fuels. Therefore an increase in fossil fuels hasn't let to an increase in deaths. obviously this is different to the rest of the world but Japan is different. Apparently

    He didn't join Arsenal from Wigan. Wigan was one of the teams that Arsenal loaned him to.

    There were four possible outcomes

    1) reach the target

    2) fail and turn around.

    3) fail and be rescued

    4) fail and die

    Now one didn't happen and two wasn't possible. 4 didn't happen because they had the sense to call for 3. Not sure why people see that as a bad thing. Pretty much every attempt at something like this that fails ends in rescue or death. I remember Richard Branson being rescued trying to break a world record. Wonder if the same people were determined to hate then.

    And yes she was part of a team that rowed the Atlantic yet instead of proving her credentials it seems that some disagree. What do you think she was doing on that trip? Making tea? Cooking toasted sandwiches?

    More people die on the way down on Everest than going up because they don't have the strength of mind to turn round.

    She'll be back again and I wish her the best of luck. People like her are,IMO crazy, but that's because they take on things that are way out of my comfort zone.

    If an earthquake wasn't strong enough to cause the leaks, how could a tsunami that didn't knock over the buildings cause the leaks?

    And what happened after the tsunami. The power went off and stopped the reactors from cooling... and then ....

    And yes, the reactor and turbine buildings were damaged in the earthquake and subsequent nuclear event. As a result, groundwater is able to enter the basements of those buildings.

    The reactor and turbine buildings were damaged. The buildings. Not the reactor.

    Something to do with the tsunami that followed and engulfed the plant and knocking out the power etc.

    But despite what Zichi has said, there is absolutely no evidence that the reactors suffered major damage in the earthquake for one simple reason. They didn't.

    Now you can mark me down all you like, that doesn't change the fact that the reactors did not suffer major damage during the quake.

    You said:

    The Fukushima nuclear plant was extensively damaged by the earthquake including major damage to the reactors.

    There is no evidence of this. There has never been any evidence of this.

    Yes but if you don't use the word hydro, I don't know you're referring to hydro dams.

    A bit like when you use the phrase major damage, I know that you're incorrectly claiming that there was major damage to the reactors.

    would be better if you actually made a contribution to the discussion instead of just attacking comments made by others.

    Wow. Coming from you?

    So a degree in geography would be on a higher than yoga

    you've previously claimed that the reactor suffered catastrophic damage in the quake yet haven't provided any links so I think it's fair to ask for one. I mean you have said dams have never failed on Japan. I have never stated the "reactor" not sure which one you mean, "suffered catastrophic damage" but certainly parts of it were damaged like the cracks in the suppression chambers. Because of the dangerous radiation levels a proper inspection of the Fukushima reactors has been impossible. It made be many decades before one can be made.With regard to dams in Japan, I have only stated there as never been a major disaster involving a hydro dam.

    Sorry, you’re right. You didn’t say catastrophic. You said the reactor suffered ‘major damage’.

    And no, you said there had never been a major disaster involving dams in Japan. Whereas one failed in March 2011 killing numerous people

    In his evidence to the Diet, the plant manager at the time of the nuclear disaster, Yoshida stated about not being able to close the doors to the emergency center building because they had been distorted by the earthquake even though the building was suppose to be earthquake proof. Anyway I have said there was damage during the earthquake but the damage wasn't significant enough on its own and would have been repaired had it not been for the tsunami. I don't think you are qualified to make that statement and will will never known if there would have been a nuclear disaster without the tsunami.

    Wow. I’m not qualified to make the statement that it didn’t happen. Yet you’re qualified to say that the reactors suffered major damage.

    I think you missed the point again. You asked what would have happened if Tokyo had to be evacuated. Yet it was never ever going to happen so is irrelevant.

    You make a statement that the earthquake bent the doors. I asked if you have a link to prove that. You constantly ask me to provide links to my claims and I don't think there is any harm in me asking you to prove something. you've previously claimed that the reactor suffered catastrophic damage in the quake yet haven't provided any links so I think it's fair to ask for one. I mean you have said dams have never failed on Japan.

    Anyway I have said there was damage during the earthquake but the damage wasn't significant enough on its own and would have been repaired had it not been for the tsunami.

    Fukushima had one but the earthquake bent the doors which couldn't be closed allowing radiation to enter. They are suppose to be earthquake and radiation proof.

    Do you have a link for that?

    . What would have happened if Tokyo had to be evacuated?

    If. It wasn't nor was it ever going to be. It's like saying what would have happened if another, larger dam had failed. It didn't happen and if anything it shows what a good job the risk assessors did.

    Smith, actually I think that the fact he won election and has resigned now is actually a good thing for the game and FIFA.

    Now don't get me wrong, he is an odious toad and only ever did things which benefitted him. But had he dropped out last week there would have only been one person who could have taken over. Now, hopefully, there can be a fair and clear race for the best candidates.

    It may well turn out that that is actually Prince Ali but this way there can be a completely fresh and hopefully fair race.

    People die from the generation of electricity. This is undoubtedly true. Most people die from the generation of fossil fuels. Again this is undoubtedly true.

    And I still struggle to understand why you prefer the guaranteed deaths from fossil fuels.

    Awesome news. Now let's hope they manage to appoint someone removed from FIFA and coming in with a nice clean broom. Figo would be a good start.

    Actually, it's likely to be a lot more than 2000 but still

    Also, why do people keep saying no one knows how many will die. we have a very god idea how many will die. And the answer is 'few'

    And just to ensure I get record negatives on this I'll throw in one more fact

    About 1% of radiation in the Pacific is from Fukushima.

    Not at all Zichi. It seems strange for someone to constantly target my responses if you agree with what I'm reporting. As you haven't said that you agree with the findings of the scientists, or that a yoga teacher shouldn't be deemed as an expert it only seems logical that you would have an alternative opinion.

    The link you previously linked to on Nature was a news article and not a peer review science report like you claimed. Not all the posts on Nature are science reports. Nonetheless I did quite a bit of searching and reading.

    Out of a possible 897 entries for "Fukushima" within the first 150 articles I only found two which were about food contaminations. There are actually more science reports on insects. The post by Elizabeth Gibney which you linked to is a news report, not a science paper.

    Indeed it is a news report. A report which is based on findings in peer reviewed scientific papers. Which are cited at the bottom of the page. But then again there have been the reports from WHO, UNSCEAR etc who all show that for people to have health effects from Fukushima they would need to have consumed high levels of radioactive food. Which hasn't happened.

    So perhaps Zichi, you could explain why people have eaten high levels of radioactive food, as you clearly disagree with the findings of these scientists. Perhaps you can provide peer reviewed data that disputes this information.

    Because all I see from the science community is positivity. I'd like to see some of the negative articles that you must have read to dispute the findings of the science world.

    So on the one hand we have the science community who suggest that there are safe limits and use research and historical facts to prove it and on the other hand we have listenthetruth.

    tricky.

    You mean the nature article that lists the research of numerous different scientists? The one that shows that someone spending 6 weeks eating exclusively Fukushima food showed absolutely no radiation? The one that showed a different set of research that shows how the radiation in Fukushima? Which supports what other scientists have said previously?

    Is that the one you read?

    Speaking of backing up your claim, where's the link that shows 'Less than 80% of the people living in Fukushima prefecture buy any food grown in the area so the locals also continue to have some mistrust.'

    Obviously you can't because it's not true. But still when you continue to throw out these claims it would be awfully nice if you provided some evidence. You expect it from others but frequently fail to provide it yourself.
