    about all the other crap released into the environment by the quake and tsunami, online for 11 months, that people didn't give a damn about because acrylamide, asbestos, benzene, bisphenol A, bromomethane (methyl bromide), cadmium, chromium compounds, chloroform, chlorodifluoromethane, ethylene glycol, dioxins, formaldehyde, lead, mercury, toluene, and xylene isn't radioactive (h/t Rod Adams).

    It appears that it isn't newsworthy if you can't scream "OMG ATOMZZZZZ!!!111!!!11!".

    •  None of this matters in anti-nuke land. (1+ / 0-)

      One billion people could die, for instance, from famines related to climate change, and they would still be talking about Fukushima.

      Cancers from chemical pollutants don't count, especially if it's cadmium from plants that manufacture solar cells.

      Solar cells are holy and sacred and cannot be discussed in any negative terms.

      You're not paying attention.   The only thing that matters is the reactors.

        "not paying attention" once again.

        This poison mess is too large to hide under your "nuclear" rug of lies for poison profit ...

        When the former Prime Minister of Japan condemns poison nukes in the NYT... you "nuke-for-profit-dudes" have a problem continuing your game of distraction.

        CLEAN UP YOUR POISON with your own $$$, not taxpayers who are already on the hook around the world.

        WE THE PEOPLE do not want it.  Alternate energy is here TODAY - use it... stop destroying people and environment for a change, eh?

        •  I couldn't care less about the circle jerk (0+ / 0-)

          of anti-nuke rhetoric.

          Like I said, one billion people could die from climate change and you'd still be talking about the reactor.

          In fact, 20,000 people died from buildings in the Japanese quake and are you calling for a phase out of buildings?

          No, you're not.

          As I point out continuously the World Health Organization - which by the way is an organization with scientific credibility reports that 3.3 million people die each year from air pollution.

          Half of them are under 5 years of age.

          Do you care?

          No, you don't.   There is NOT ONE paranoid anti-nuke on this website who has ever in my experience ever discussed these dead.

          Your response to these dead is lazy googled responses.

          One of the hallmarks of bad thinking, of lazy thinking, of toxic thinking is the logical fallacy called appeal to authority.

          You say, "the Prime Minister of Japan says..." and insert some rote knee jerk toxic and mindless anti-nuke rhetoric.

          Some one else could easily say that "The President of the United States believes that Iraq has nuclear weapons and therefore we are justified in murdering 100,000 Iraqis."   This actually happened in the early part of the last decade.   Maybe you heard about it, or maybe not.

          The President was not merely stupid, he was also a delusional liar.

          With this in mind, I am completely unconcerned about some Japanese Prime Minister's bizarre rote anti-nuke ramblings.

          I have yet to meet ONE rote dogmatic anti-nuke who has ever opened a science book, but one can find thousands upon thousands of them who are willing to cite each other, in the vast circle jerk of fear, superstition and ignorance.

          Nuclear power saves lives and as my sig line says:  "Ignorance kills."  I will add that fear has always throughout history been a motivation for crime and indifference and that superstition simply breeds poverty and, predictably, more fear and ignorance.

          But have a nice evening in spite of your indifference.
