WSJ: "Japan Finds Radiation Spread Over a Wide Area"

August 31, 2011 p. A11

"The survey of 2,200 locations within a 62-mile radius of the crippled plant found that those locations had cesium-137 in excess of 1.48 million becquerels per square meter, the level set by the Soviet Union for forced resettlement after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, Japanese authorities said..."

"...the latest data point to the possibility that cesium could also be washing away and spreading to other areas, potentially contaminating rivers, lower-lying land and the ocean."

MAJIA HERE: I am very sorry for the Japanese people and regret the role my country played in persuading or coercing the Japanese government to implement nuclear power on an island so clearly, geologically unsafe for this type of "energy."
