    there are 7million people within 50miles of one SoCal nuclear plant. Evacuate? Yeah, right

    •  She assumed they would evac to 50 here? (0+ / 0-)

      Willingness to evacuate to 50 miles in Japan should not be taken to mean they would recommend that here.  Industry and state officials would be up in arms.  In the U.S., the 50 miles radius is not an "evacuation zone," but is the planning limit of the "ingestion pathway," inside which officials may recommend other protective actions, such as restrictions on sale and consumption of milk and produce.
