    With safe levels set at 20 millisieverts, looks like somewhere between 120 and 150 years.

    •  Yes, Orinoco. I agree, it's well over 100 years. (4+ / 0-)

      Of course given the lies, and minimization we've heard so far the Japanese government will probably only bring this up in 2022.  

      The Japanese people will surpase them soon, and through out the politicians who are not protecting them, and their children adequately, is my guess.

      They will probably turn Fukushima into their permenent waste repository, so my guess it that area is gone
      forever, for any other use, as far as our generation, and the next several is concerned.

      We've got three cores in full meltdown mode.

      When they hit the water table they could be sending out large amounts of radioactive steams for an unknown period of time.

      If heard estimate of decades to a century.

      I don't know.

      Why are we not hearing more about the possible scenarios from the Japanese, and other scientist around the world?

      There is no "safe" 20 msv dose

    •  Sieverts are a horrible "measurement" (1+ / 0-)

      Theres no solid scientific basis for the measurement. You can get 3 different measurements from the same readings by 3 different people/organisations. It doesnt hold up to scientific method in the slightest. I realise it's "Fun" like the "feels like" weather temp forecasts. But this is supposed to be science.
