    The bad news is that the brave leader of Fukushima’s Fifty has died of esophageal cancer. The good news is that it had nothing to do with his job.

    Semi-related to this topic…

    300 tons sounds like a lot, but a friend pointed out that’s only an Olympic-sized swimming pool of water that is 30x – 60x above the “safe” level of radiation every week (“only”…)

    Anyways, I don’t know if his math is correct nor how devastating that really is. Has anyone seen a spectrum of the outcomes of this situation, from least to most “bad” (i.e. best cast vs. worst case scenarios)?

    It would be nice to put realistic boundaries on just how bad Fukushima could be for humanity…

    Cheers,
