Another Day At The Beach At Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant

I am not a nuclear scientist, but this just strains credulity:

Three men working near the No. 3 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant Thursday stepped into water that had 10,000 times the amount of radiation typical for a nuclear plant, a Japanese government official said Friday, but nuclear experts said the burns suffered by the workers may not amount to much more than a sunburn. Beta rays given off by radioactive substances don’t penetrate deeply into materials, including flesh, said Nolan Hertel, a professor nuclear engineering at Georgia Tech. Consequently, the danger is relatively limited, he said. “Basically, a beta burn would be akin to a bad sunburn,” he said.

When was the last time you were hospitalized for a sunburn?

    The cover up happening in japan is scandalous. I feel really bad for the sheeple there who believe everything their govt tells them yet in this situation the govt has no idea what to do and consistently lies to its people. I don’t think japan will ever be the same after this
