    Maybe that was the plan all along. They can charge them rent and get income from the ferry rides to Japan and back.

    Looks like I'll be pretty safe in Texas.

    Listen at 3 minutes into this video....worse than Chernobyl....

    Japanese reactors will have to be entombed...

    Estimates that 500,000 could die from the nuclear accident.

    The nuclear sky is falling on the Japanese citizens...

    Why yes.....picking and choosing which parts of videos to watch and what section of a larger article to read can make things seem worse than they are. Thank you for illustrating that.

    Watch the entire thing. I'm just telling you where they are ADMITTING that things aren't peaches and cream anymore.

    Just like the Russians first made Chernobyl look like a wienie roast.

    Oh..or the part where they ADMIT they will have to entomb them...or they ADMIT 500,000 will die over the coming years from the "nothing to worry about" little thingy down by the plant.

    Move along nothing here to see...the sky is falling life or death nuclear event has been cancelled.

    The point is they have been deliberately slow in letting out alll the facts. Don't want to cause a PANIC. It's better to fry them where they stand than to have to deal with a million homeless people leaving in a big hurry. Think of the traffic jam.

    Just like in Katrina while the helicopters flew over and over the stadium showing you the pictures of 10,000 trapped people without food and water for a week. Better than trying to save them. That would really be a logistical nightmare. Leave them there at least we know where they are and what they are doing.

    Those pictures made me sick. At the very least they could have dropped down some water for them. They did nothing but take pictures.

    ''RUN FOR YOUR LIVES''---sorry prepster,, i just couldn't resist. it sho'nuff looks like those unfortunate people are going to have a long term problem over there. compounded by a lack of space anyway. i thought the pictures of the folks being buried vertical was very interesting, taking up less acreage for cemeteries.

    I really hate to bring this little matter up but.....Run for your lives....

    So. California's San Onofre nuclear plant, near fault line and sea, built to withstand less than Japan plant

    spokesman for Southern California Edison, the operator of the San Onofre nuclear power generating station (between LA and San Diego, the big white dome-shaped thing off I-5) was trying to calm fearful Southern California residents today when he explained that the 84-acre generating station was built to withstand a magnitude 7.0 earthquake. He also told local media that a 25-foot-high "tsunami wall" of reinforced concrete stood between the plant and the immediately adjacent Pacific ocean.

    Well, that's nice. But this Southern California resident remains concerned: the earthquake that devastated Japan last Friday, throwing various nuclear power plants into crisis and sparking worldwide fears of a major nuke accident, was a 9.0 "great quake." And the tsunami that soon followed? That was 33 feet high.

    When the plant was built 42 years ago (42 years! That's forever in design-years!), scientists predicted a 6.5 quake could strike the plant. The designers of the San Onofre plant built with a higher threshold in mind. But man, not high enough, for my money. There's a geological fault just 5 miles offshore, and good odds we'll be hit by a "great quake" of our own, sooner or later.
    LOL, different KIND of fault. Japan is in a subduction zone, California is a (left lateral) strike/slip....plus not much chance of big tsunamis since there isn't much of a continental shelf along the Pacific Coast (the wave energy hits the shelf, and the wave gets taller and slows down....increasing the mass of the wave since faster water is overtaking it, making it taller still. No shelf (the water gets quite deep, well beyond anchoring depths, less than a couple of miles offshore, most places) and so not much wave amplification.
    Good medicine in bad places
