The Fukushima FUD-Con release has killed 1650+ people and constitutes a disaster.
The Fukushima Rad-Con release has killed NO ONE (and will likely kill a handful or so) and thus cannot be rationally called a disaster or catastrophe.

Stop wasting posts. You are WRONG!
Wow you really got me there with your intelligent rebuttal.
"The man who says he is the smartest in the room is usually not"
My comprehension skills are just fine it is your writing skills that need work. In general the only time you write a complete sentence is when you cut and paste something. As far as wasting posts I took a minute to look at the number of posts we both have on this blog alone.
You have 89 which is nearly 40% of all the posts on this blog. I have 13 which is about 6%. The vast majority of what you have included in your posts is either cut and pasted from someone else's opinion which you happen to agree with or are absolute drivel, those posts are easily identified as your thoughts. You remind me of some of the group think liberals who figure if I just yell loud enough or don't stop talking that somehow I am correct, or at least I will get the other person to stop talking so I win by default. I actually feel sorry for you!!!

Dozens of Greenpeace activists sneaked into a nuclear power plant in eastern France at dawn Tuesday in the latest break-in by the environmental group to highlight alleged security weaknesses at atomic facilities.

The activists broke into the Fessenheim plant and hung a banner reading “Stop risking Europe” on the side of one of its reactors “to denounce the risk of French nuclear power for the whole of Europe,” the group said in a statement.

A spokesman for state-run power firm EDF, which runs the plant, said it was functioning normally despite the break-in.

Ratepayers may get refunds from San Onofre nuclear plant closure

Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric ratepayers could be in line for a share of more than $1 billion in refunds as part of a possible financial settlement related to San Onofre.

Director of the Center for Marine and Environmental Radioactivity at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Massachusetts, Ken Buesseler spoke of the extreme effects of the earthquake and tsunami in Fukushima on March 11, 2011. The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant has leaked large amounts of radioactive material into the surrounding environment since the facility experienced a meltdown following the tsunami.

According to Buesseler, the Western United States is not under a direct health threat from the radioactive leakage originating from Fukushima.

“Radioactivity can be dangerous, you should be concerned when things like this happen, but I don’t think that Santa Barbara or the West Coast are contaminated to levels where we should have concern for our health or safety,” Buesseler said.

Buesseler said he was studying the fallout of plutonium from weapons testing in the 1940s and 1950s by the United States and Soviet Union.

“I did a thesis on plutonium isotopes in the North Atlantic,” Buesseler said.“Plutonium is what’s been delivered atmospherically after the weapons testing globally. So every pond, every lake, every piece of soil that’s exposed has a bit of plutonium in it. What we were interested in, as oceanographers, was the science of that fallout in the ocean. How much was left in a waterfall and how much was left on the sea floor with respects to isotopes.”

According to Buesseler, he primarily focuses on the fallout from Cesium-137 because it takes a long time to dissipate from the ocean.

“Cesium-137 has a 30-year half-life which is around for a long time,” Buesseler said.“That’s why it’s still here from the weapon testing 60 years ago. If you were to ask what’s the most radioactive ocean right now from Cesium-137, it would be the Aegean Sea followed by the Baltic; not the Pacific, not the Atlantic.”

Buesseler said two sources of Fukushima radionuclides, which are high-energy atoms with unstable nuclei, are entering the ocean through “atmospheric deposition” and “direct discharge.”
“We have these explosive releases of atmospheric derives of fallout and the gases carried out by aerosol either to the ocean or on land,” Buesseler said.“Luckily for Japan these tend to fall offshore. So about 80 percent of the fallout that came through those explosive releases fell on the earth and that happened about 3 days after March 11.”

When activists break into sensitive nuclear facilities, are arrested, and jailed; the anti-nukes bitch.

TEPCO is struggling to handle the huge -- and growing -- volume of contaminated water at Fukushima, the site of the worst atomic crisis in a generation.

Thousands of gallons of contaminated water are being stored on site, with no permanent solution for safely disposing of it.

Dumping Radiation Directly Into the Ocean

In order to siphon off the rapidly accumulating radioactive water, TEPCO has begun deliberately releasing it into the Pacific Ocean, several hundred tons at a time. The company has claimed that the radiation levels in this water are too low to pose a threat to ocean life or public health. Yet, shortly after the controlled releases began, a TEPCO tests revealed that water at one of the Fukushima wells was too radioactive to be dumped into the ocean. The test detected 1,700 becquerels of tritium per liter of water, surpassing the maximum allowed amount of 1,500 becquerels per liter. A sample taken in May also exceeded the limit.

Meanwhile, the company is proceeding with plans to freeze the ground surrounding the reactors in order to prevent any more water from infiltrating the plant. Workers have already begun excavation to bury a network of pipes that will have minus 30-degree brine pumped through them round the clock.

Environmentalists and the media have criticized this "ice wall" plan as an expensive, unproven plan that is likely to fail.

TOKYO (Reuters)- Japanese government officials no longer expect the world's biggest nuclear plant to restart this year, sources said, a delay which deals a blow to turnaround plans for operator Tokyo Electric Power.

Starting the Kashiwazaki Kariwa facility, 300 km (180 miles) northwest of Tokyo, is a pivotal part of Tokyo Electric's (Tepco) attempts to shore up its finances three years after its Fukushima site suffered three nuclear meltdowns.

The company had slated the restart of two reactors at Kashiwazaki for this month, but critics have long said that goal was unrealistic and four sources with direct knowledge of the matter said it would be postponed. One source said the timetable could be pushed back by a year.

"It will take some time for Kashiwazaki, it will be impossible to restart it this fiscal year," the source told Reuters. Japan's business year started in April.
