Actually the japanese were too fast. Should have washed the reactors into the ocean, cordoned off a 10 mile area to prevent fishing.\
Everything would be now a distant memory, like the British Petroleum oil pollution of 4 american states' coasts, and the not even noticed-by-public gigantic refinery fires in the tsunami aftermath.

Enviroagitateur would still crow how Kaliforneans should be afraid, very afraid of 0.0001 Bq per liter (normal background radioactivity is 12 Bq per liter).
But we would have moved on.
Serves the nuclear energy right for being the only big electricity producer NOT to dump its waste straight into the environment. It means enviro-agitateurs have an excuse to aggitate till kingdom come.
