How are 1-5 millisieverts per year - and that only in the most c0ontaminated areas -going to render Japan unihabitable?
.
Or is this "unihabitable" claim just a lie spread by BoigOil stooges in the MSM and internet?

Ah, so I did catch you lying. You (and your sources) have no backing for the preposterous claim that Japan will become uninhabiable!

So sweet to expose the lies of antinukular aggitateurs!!

So far, there is not one shred of evidence in your posts to back your absurd quotes about impeding doom.
.
E.g.
"300 tons of radioactive water" - that's nonsense, all water on Earth, except tiny amounts in laboratories, is radioactive. So, how radiactive?For example, Pacific water is radiactive at 12 Bq/L. So those 300 tons 1 Bq/l, 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000, 100,000, 1000,000, 1,000,0000, 10,000,000 Bq/L.
.
U see, it kinda matters.

While I cannot get too worked up about say 10,000 Bq/L, 10,000,000 will get my attention, and 10,000,000,000 will probably make me join your antinukular protestations.

Like I said you should educate yourself about Fukushima.. still unravelling.. you can search for each post quote to get the rest..

ABC news yesterday.. One slip-up in the latest step to decommission Japan's crippled Fukushima nuclear plant could trigger a "monumental" chain reaction, experts warn.

Within days, Fukushima nuclear plant operators will begin what is being described as the most dangerous phase of the decommissioning process so far.

In an operation never before attempted, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) will start removing 1,331 highly radioactive used fuel assemblies from a deep pool which sits high above the ground in a shattered reactor building.

The Fukushima nuclear plant's reactors were sent into meltdown by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011 in the world's worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl.

Experts around the world have warned ever since that the fuel pool is in a precarious state - vulnerable to collapsing in another big earthquake.

Yale University professor Charles Perrow wrote about the number 4 fuel pool this year in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists.

He said one pool contains 10 times the amount of radioactive caesium present in the Chernobyl disaster and warned one slip-up with the removal could trigger a chain reaction.

"This has me very scared," he told the ABC.

"Tokyo would have to be evacuated because [the] caesium and other poisons that are there will spread very rapidly.

"Even if the wind is blowing in the other way, it's going to be monumental."

I'm still waiting for any hard data beyond the scaremongering ... Any?
.
This was the largest release of radiation since Chernobyl, and antinukular types cannot find ONE piece of hard data on risk?

Charles Perrow is a sociology professor?? who's major theme is the impact of large organizations upon society. His structure and power view is explored in successive editions of Complex Organizations: A Critical Essay, first published in 1972, 3rd edition, 1986 (McGraw Hill). It is applied in the award winning Organizing America: Wealth, Power and the Origins of American Capitalism (2002, Princeton). Hardly a scientific expert! I bet dollars to donuts he could not explain the simple difference between a gamma and an X-ray.

David Suzuki has issued a scary warning about Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant, saying that if it falls in a future earthquake, it's "bye bye Japan" and the entire west coast of North America should be evacuated.

The "Nature of Things" host made the comments in a talk posted to YouTube after he joined Dr. David Schindler for "Letting in the Light," a symposium on water ecology held at the University of Alberta on Oct. 30 and 31.

An excerpt of the talk shows Suzuki outlining a frightening scenario that would result from the destruction of the nuclear plant.

"Fukushima is the most terrifying situation I can imagine," he said.

"Three out of the four plants were destroyed in the earthquake and in the tsunami. The fourth one has been so badly damaged that the fear is, if there's another earthquake of a seven or above that, that building will go and then all hell breaks loose.

"And the probability of a seven or above earthquake in the next three years is over 95 per cent."

Suzuki said that an international team of experts needs to go into the Fukushima plant and help fix the problem, but said the Japanese government has "too much pride to admit that."

"I have seen a paper which says that if in fact the fourth plant goes under in an earthquake and those rods are exposed, it's bye bye Japan and everybody on the west coast of North America should evacuate," he said.

"If that isn't terrifying, I don't know what is."

Suzuki's warning came as radiation from the Fukushima plant has been detected in northern Alaska and along the west coast, CBC News reported.

Radiation in Alaskan waters could reach Cold War levels, said Douglas Dasher, a researcher at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, although John Kelley, a professor emeritus at the same university, doesn't seem as certain that it will reach dangerous levels for humans.

"The data they will need is not only past data but current data, and if no one is sampling anything then we won't really know it, will we," he told the network.[HuffingtonPostBC]

Pity that's all I can say? You are asked to provide references or specifics and you reference people who have zero skills or knowledge on the subject matter other than the ones you profess which is a preconceived notion of what is the truth regardless of what the facts are. You select a sociologist an environmental zoologist and an ecologist whose studies have been solely about two subjects; acid rain, phosphorus controls and eutrophication of lakes.
