This is a very interesting and insightful video. Good thing Mike posted it. It's worth an hour of your time.

The one quibble I would have is when they spoke of the radiation levels in some neighborhood being multiple times higher than before the meltdown. That may, in fact, be equivalent to bragging that you have 25 times more money now than before, even though all you had before was a penny and now you have a quarter.

Comparisons of radioactivity to before the tsunami are interesting, but what is most important is whether or not the current levels are dangerous or not.

That show just served to illustrate the sheer hysteria that the Japanese have when it comes to radiation - the levels of radiation there are no more of a cancer risk than eating a bag of chips according to scientists.
