Fukushima: Three Full Nuclear Meltdowns, and pesky reality
From CNN: Three meltdowns happened in Fukushima in 2011. Three nuclear meltdowns, a year ago. Recently, on a follow-up story in the Star-Phoenix, comes the quote:... After a magnitude 9 earthquake and a major tsunami walloped Japan's northeastern coastline last March, three of the Fukushima Daiichi plant's six reactors went into full meltdown, triggering explosions which spewed radiation across an area where tens of thousands of people had lived. The disaster was a "seven," the highest and most dangerous rating on what is called the International Nuclear Event Scale. The nearest you can get to ground zero and the most heavily contaminated area around it without government-approved papers is a blockade on Route 6, a long coastal highway that has been split in two by the danger zone.

As I understand it, radiation is invisible, and therefore, thank goodness, doesn't exist.
