I seem to remember a much more severe nuclear incident that Japan survived and even flourished after. 1945, wasn't it?

Oh, sure the nuclear is a slow long term problem that is at least isolated to a more remote area than say tokyo. I think the major damage at present is from the tsunami.

On the plus side, the last isolated, remote area of Japan to suffer a major radiation leak has been building rather good cars since 1964, a mere 19 years after the... incident.

The air might be clean, but the rain is not.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...-building.html

The water seeping into a trench outside the Number two reactor at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in northeast Japan had a radiation level of more than 1,000 millisieverts per hour.

Such a high level can cause temporary radiation sickness including nausea and vomiting and far exceeds the 100 millisievert per hour which is generally regarded the lowest amount at which cancer risks are apparent.

Officials at Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) are now attempting to locate the source of the leak, which is near the turbine building of the Number 2 reactor and around 180 feet from the sea.

"The trench is located outside the building and the water contains radioactive materials," Hiro Hasegawa, a spokesman for TEPCO, told The Daily Telegraph.

"There is normally no water found in this area so it is difficult to compare this to normal levels.

Perspective:

Hill St downtown Los Angeles, 300 miles from Nevada test site.

frpm LAPL Herald Examiner archives

An A-bomb blast set off in Nevada at 4:36 a.m., on April 18, 1953, was judged by early risers to have been the most sensational of any seen so far. The blast made the eastern horizon as "bright as day."

I watched that on TV last night, is it wrong that both me and the GF cracked up laughing when he turned back to close his car door?

People do funny things when under duress.
