    No sure of your point... Safecast who have been independently reporting on Fukushima since day one have said that radiation outside of the plant keeps falling. This is higher because it's in an area that's never been tested before. Is it higher than Chernobyl? Probably given that Chernobyl was a mass explosion that spewed massive amounts of radioactive across a huge area causing such contamination that numerous foodstuffs were banned across multiple countries. Which of course is substantially different to what happened at a Fukushima but I'm sure you knew that already.

    Though as you don't use fatalities as a reason to define safe... it's no surprise that you keep banging on about how bad this is.

    I'm not doing anything other than merely repeating what Safecast reported.

    Because it was in an area that hadn't been accessible before. It's not that difficult to understand.

    You notice how much this has been watered down, if it even appears, in the Japanese media? In international media it's been reported for days that the levels have spiked to way beyond anything that came out of Chernobyl and that any exposure by a person to this much radiation for even a minute would have them dead in a week. Not even the robots can hack it, and they don't know where the fuel is or what to do. No news on that, though -- all is 'under control' after all.

    Radiation in this area has not been measured before, and it was expected to be extremely high. While 530 Sv/hr is the highest measured so far at Fukushima Daiichi, it does not mean that levels there are rising, but that a previously unmeasurable high-radiation area has finally been measured.

    Radiation levels near Daiichi have proven to be steadily declining.

    TEPCO officials said that despite the dangerously high figures, radiation is not leaking outside of the reactor.

    Oh, yes! And, we believe this because....?????

    It seems that Abe's statement to the IOC, "It's under control" was a straight up lit!

    Well clearly your father didn't write FAQs: Fukushima Five Years On, taken from the WHO website and let me repeat the quotes again:

    There were no acute radiation injuries or deaths among the workers or the public due to exposure to radiation resulting from the FDNPS accident. - source WHO

    Considering the level of estimated doses, the lifetime radiation-induced cancer risks other than thyroid are small and much smaller than the lifetime baseline cancer risks. Regarding the risk of thyroid cancer in exposed infants and children, the level of risk is uncertain since it is difficult to verify thyroid dose estimates by direct measurements of radiation exposure. - source WHO

    Again may I suggest you read this. http://m.huffpost.com/jp/entry/10537440

    That RIDICULOUS comment came from the WHO website with the FAQs on Fukushima.

    I don't think there's any point in discussing further when you are so blinkered as to avoid science

    The link you posted from 2015 was a copy of an article from 2011. Click the author's name. It points to the original article.

    Some have died

    This is a false statement

    On the other hand: http://www.who.int/ionizingradiation/ae/fukushima/faqs-fukushima/en/

    There were no acute radiation injuries or deaths among the workers or the public due to exposure to radiation resulting from the FDNPS accident.

    Considering the level of estimated doses, the lifetime radiation-induced cancer risks other than thyroid are small and much smaller than the lifetime baseline cancer risks. Regarding the risk of thyroid cancer in exposed infants and children, the level of risk is uncertain since it is difficult to verify thyroid dose estimates by direct measurements of radiation exposure.

    For the twelve workers who were estimated to have received the highest absorbed radiation doses to the thyroid, an increased risk of developing thyroid cancer and other thyroid disorders was estimated. About 160 additional workers who received whole body effective doses estimated to be over 100 mSv, an increased risk of cancer could be expected in the future although it will not be detectable by epidemiological studies because of the difficulty of confirming a small incidence against the normal statistical fluctuations in cancer incidence.

    From a global health perspective, the health risks directly related to radiation exposure are low in Japan and extremely low in neighbouring countries and the rest of the world.

    “It is unlikely to be able to attribute any health effects in the future among the general public and the vast majority of workers from exposure to radiation following the leaks and explosions at the earthquake-damaged power plant in March of 2011.” UNSCEAR

    World Health Organization said, "the predicted risks are low and no observable increases in cancer rates above baseline rates are anticipated"

    And yes people did die in the evacuation. An unnecessary evacuation.

    Never heard of the Fukushima fifty?

    I have. They were a group of workers, well in excess of fifty, who worked in shifts during the height of the crisis. Not dead though.

    Nobody's died from Fukushima. Few will. Science. None of your claims have been backed up by facts.

    UNSCEAR, WHO all stated the above. Proven by science.

    But obviously you don't believe in facts. You don't believe in science. Your links go back to 2011 - nothing recent. Because it's all been disproven by science.

    I'm sorry, you're using an article from March 2011 to prove your argument? Wow.

    Browny1... just read the link posted where the US scientific advisers to president Obama came to that conclusion.

    Ally - how many have died in Fukushima? How many in Chernobyl How much environmental damage from Fukushima and how many from Chernobyl.

    Chernobyl was the worst nuclear disaster. And yet now we know that man is more damaging to the environment than radiatokn

    I don't give a flying monkeys whether you believe an inaccurate astrophysicist or not. Plenty of scientists in the article I mentioned the one that concludes that The claim that an evacuation of Tokyo could have been necessary is based on flimsy, easily rebuttable evidence.

    The claim you constantly make.

    And if you think that pro nuclear supporters (not to be confused with nukes, which is a form of weapon) are the ones who disagree with science. Then you may need to actually spend more time speaking to scientists and not reading websites with claims that Tokyo came VERY close to an evacuation.

    But just to follow on... it's science that has been showing that the effects of Fukushima have been well and truly overblown.

    No, he's an expert in astrophysics.

    And yes the link's still not pasting but hey, it doesn't take an astrophysicist to be able to search slate fukushima new information...

    We now know that we came VERY close to a tokyo evacuation, so all those scientists you quoted have no credibility.

    And let me quote that final sentence from the article you can't find.

    **Whatever conclusions people draw about the implications of the accident, the following should be borne in mind: The claim that an evacuation of Tokyo could have been necessary is based on flimsy, easily rebuttable evidence. Furthermore, the falsity of that claim is indicative of the distortions in much of the Fukushima news coverage. That coverage has given rise to baseless fears about Fukushima that have heavily influenced public opinion. **

    So no, it didn't come very close to evacuation. It didn't even come remotely close to one. Science. It really does have the answers.

    The link is here

    What does it prove? That he was making statements that were woefully untrue. That you used him as an expert and that's why I mentioned him. In response to you.

    Those scientists were the American Scientists who President Obama asked to investigate. It was American research that determined that Tokyo would come nowhere close to evacuation. Something that was backed by the Chief British Scientist at the time. In fact he went on record as saying the French advice to evacuate Tokyo was not based on Science.

    But then there are many who are still determined to come to conclusions that are not based on science.

    Anyone who wants to understand more about what happened I recommend going to Youtube and searching for Michio Kaku or Helen Caldicott and Fukushima. Kaku actually gives an incredible account in layman terms in detail as to what happened,

    Or alternatively read up on what actually happened. http://www.slate.com/articles/healthandscience/science/2013/09/fukushimadisasternewinformationaboutworstcase_scenarios.html

    Kaku, incidentally, during the height of the crisis said that no textbook told you to pump seawater on a reactor. Funny, because 20 years ago when I studied mine did. So I don't know what he's read. But then again, I don't think even he would claim to be a nuclear expert.

    I'm willing to bet we would have lost Tokyo.

    After days of high-intensity analysis and numerous computer runs, the scientists concluded that radiation in Tokyo would come nowhere close to levels requiring an evacuation, even in the event that Fukushima Dai-ichi underwent the worst plausible meltdown combined with extremely unfavorable wind and weather patterns.

    never stated tens of thousands would die. In danger of getting cancer or other sicknesses yes

    I don't have the time to scrawl through all of your misinformation, so I'll answer this:

    tens of thousands In danger of getting cancer or other sicknesses yes - Utrack

    tens of thousands In danger of getting cancer or other sicknesses no - Science community.

    Proven by the fact that we are six years on and there's one. One single person who works at Dai Ichi has thyroid cancer.

    Babies or older adults nor anyone in between should ingest nuclear radiation.

    And yet we have done. Since the 1950s Pacific nuclear tests... since Chernobyl...since the fire at Windscale, the leaks from Sellafield etc... and of course the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki... Food is contaminated with nucelar radiation. As it is contaminated with any number of carciogens from acid rain, air pollution, exhausts etc etc etc

    It's amazing any of us are alive isn't it. It seems to be pure luck... though some, some foolish people (mostly scientists) would argue that there's a scientific safe level that's acceptable in terms of both exposure and accumulation.

    Just because you say it's bad doesn't mean it is... you've previously stated that tens of thousands would die from Fukushima. And now you're desperately clinging on to one solitary worker who has thyroid cancer to prove your point. And if anything, that just reinforces how wrong you are.

    What the government of Japan...whose limits are lower than every other country on the planet... so therefore what you're saying is that every single government, the WHO, the UN etc have all forgotten about babies? And this was despite in March 2011 on one single, solitary day, the government of Japan (despite the levels being below what would have been safe in Europe or the US) advised that babies in Tokyo don't drink tap water because the water was found to be contaminated to a level that wasn't safe for babies to do so. But yup, scientists around the world have just totally forgotten about that haven't they.

    oh and consumption over a period of time? Nope, that's not been remotely considered by anyone...

    Any reputable scientist will tell you no amount of nuclear radioisotopes intake is healthy.

    Any reputable scientist would tell you that fast food isn't healthy. In fact they'd probably advise you against eating it. They wouldn't advise against drinking milk that's below safe limits though, or any fresh produce for that matter.

    You don't spread misinformation? Any reputable scientists post on Enenews where you get your facts from? Or your initial post, that something that is BELOW INTERNATIONAL SAFE LIMITS is dangerous according to you. That the Japanese are substantially below international safe limits is neither here nor there because as far as you're concerned with your doctorate in misinformation, it's bad m'kay.

    But hey, what would scientists know?
