back on topic. every scientist, civilian, nuclear-promoting-devil, etc will have different opinions and different advice. im actually quite surprised that my dad hasnt said anything to the effect of "hey dude, u should get out of there and go to another country where its safe from radiation." but thats fine. im a big boy and i can make my own decisions. im getting fed up with all the lies, and after doing more and more research i have come to the conclusion that japan is NOT a safe place to live, even for me at 350 miles away.
the IEAE (international atomic energy agency) has a deal with WHO (world health organization) so that neither can disparage the other. the WHO.. the ones who are supposed to be protecting the world's health! the IEAE was created to simultaneously "regulate" while at the same promote nuclear energy. it is the same organization, the IEAE, who suggested that only 4,000 people lost their lives due to the accident at Chernobyl. yet other distinguished organizations and scientists claim that the actual number, due to various radiation-related sicknesses, is more like 985,000. i mean, WTF...
so u can decide to believe one side or the other. but what really matters is that you start thinking for yourself and your own well-being. japan is fucked. fucked in the asshole by a big, hairy, sweaty man with no condom or vaseline. japan is a tiny country if u consider how narrow it is. its roughly the size of California, with about 40% the population of the entire United States. now imagine that a nuclear accident occurred near Los Angeles. that is basically whats happened. all the water is leaking into the sea and even worse, the ground. when the meltdown lava goes deep into the earth, it reacts with the whatever and explodes, sending off dangerous radiation vapor. this is shit that we will breath. then water supplies are going to be contaminated. if the ground is obviously contaminated with cancer causing radiation, that means every single form of substinance will have the possibility of carrying radiation... YAY!??
they have already proven that spinach 75 miles away is unsafe. tea leaves are also unsafe at XX-distance. water. grass. cows eat the grass, and give us our milk, cheese, yogurt, butter... other vegetables will be contaminated too. u go into a restaurant, how do u know where the fuck the food comes from? you dont. is it safe to go outside for a stroll in the park for the day? do u really know how the prevailing winds are going to take the fallout? do u really want to see just *how* much radiation you and your loved ones can take? well maybe its just me, but i say "fuck that".
ok now im going into exaggerated rant mode. but i think this is warranted. i have heard absolutely NO ONE in my office even mention the ill effects or their fears of the future of japan due to the power plant meltdowns. not a fucking peep in 2 months. i dont know why the fuck everyone is so fucking calm. am i the only one who gives a damn if my children develop abnormalities, defects, serious health problems, cancer, or die?? apparently so. i am utterly flabbergasted at the lack of interest, discussion, and thought put into this disaster.
so yah. looks like we may be facing a disaster worse than chernobyl thanks to the dense population of japan, lack of awareness and questing-raising, and lying from the government with support from US agencies trying to keep nuclear power plants active throughout the world.
gotta talk to my wife about possible relocation. peace.
here is a very in-depth article on the effects of chernobyl touching on all these topics. if u have a chance, and are interested, take a look:
