Back to work…

Sorry, but have to sound off about something I heard today.

There is a very well-intentioned group of people who are trying to raise money for children orphaned by the 3.11 disaster in the Tohoku area to assist with their education until the age of 18. I do not know all the details, so I have to reserve complete judgement on their work. At face value, it appears to be a necessary and humanitarian effort which I would support. There may be one caveat. The children must stay in their local area to continue their education.

*IF* these children are outside of Fukushima, I would fully support this effort. However, if the children are required to stay in areas of high radiation, playing, eating, swimming, walking to and from school on streets with readings beyond those safe for a nuclear worker (as has been found since 3.11), another way must be found. THESE CHILDREN MUST BE EVACUATED FROM FUKUSHIMA and AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Saying “It’s okay for them to grow up in those areas” is tantamount to saying “it’s okay to drive down a highway at full ‘legal’ speed with the kids sitting on the hood of the car.” Ridiculous. Childrens’ bodies are growing. They cannot be exposed to these levels without some consequence to their health. Nurses with children are leaving the prefecture for fears of the effects of radiation. Abnormal growths have already been found in some children.

Leaving the children in these areas amounts to state-sanctioned child abuse.

Nine Mile Point (Unit 1), Indian Point (Unit 3) in the State of New York were automatic shutdowns because of electrical grid problems. Salem (Unit 1) in New Jersey was manually shut down because of high river water levels and debris in the water.
Oyster Creek (NJ)’s alert due to the high water levels at the water intake remains.
