minor radiation for now.... possibly dangerous levels to come should the reactors go (likely)

Urgh that article makes me wanna throw up.

How dare Obama throw the American people under the train, intentionally exposing them to hazardous radiation, and Californians no less... he clearly wants Americans to die.

lmao

obviously he's not causing radiation.... but telling people to do nothing for preparations is stupid.


I'm sure he's just trying to avoid panic..... but he's hedging his bets on either the reactor not blowing, or the winds changing directions before it does.

They have plenty of warning if something does go wrong. If it actually blows up entirely he still has several days to organize an evacuation if it even becomes necessary. No point depleting grocery stores yet. You know how bad Americans are when it starts to show signs of snowing... no food on the shelves for miles around because they interpret "light snow showers" to mean "SOCIETAL COLLAPSE IMMINENT, STARVATION RISK SEVERE."

and that panic is not entirely unjustified..... if shipping breaks down... there is only enough food in stores for like 3-4 days not counting peoples personal food stores.


and Mass evacuation in a few days is easy? heh heh heh there would be mass panic and riots... if you aren't ready (food & supplies) before evac is announced and live in a big city... u could easily get screwed... cross ur fingers

no need to drain the grocery store.... but it would be prudent to maybe make sure you have a weeks food in your house at least.

Good luck there Ronin, and those of you on the west coast.

But, idk. I watched a speech yesterday where he showed serious concern for the American citizens in Japan. I guess he's just not that worried it'll affect us here. Regardless, yes, people should be taking precaution.

If he announces anything like "start preparing" there WOULD be a mass panic and riots. Even though I think you're exaggerating; I doubt there would be any riots and mass panic. It's not like it's certain death rolling in and they have plenty of warning. And why would shipping break down?

It's not an end of the world scenario... it would be bad of course if radiation rolled onto the West Coast but it wouldn't be like "MOON TURNS OUT TO BE DEATH STAR" panic.

shipping would break down because they aren't going to truck into an area being hit with radiation.... also food would become contaminated that isn't otherwise protected somehow. (such as in your sealed up house)

end of the world? of course not... don't be ridiculous... I never said it would be...

BUT it's still wise to be prepared because it could make people deathly ill if caught with their pants down... so to speak.

No need to build a shelter.... but some minor preparations would be advisable for sure.


There ARE ways to convey messages in a calm, rational manner that wont cause mass panic and riots. As of right now, there is plenty of time to prepare in safety.... if they wait until the fallout starts blowing our way, THEN there WOULD be panic as time to prepare... and resources to do so.... would be in much shorter supply

Try not to worry about it too much. Make your own preparations if you don't believe Obama's calm demeanor. It's not as if the general public is unaware that there might be something blowing their way in the coming weeks.

Everyone with access to the internet or a newspaper knows about the reactor, and every story featuring it knows of the potential risks to the US. Everyone who heard about it will look deeper into it and discover whatever they missed in their first exposure.

Every article I've read says that there's no chance of radiation making it across the Pacific. This article is just attacking Obama, nothing else.

Radiation scenarios are a bitch, and I'm assuming half of the houses/apartments there don't have foot-thick concrete walls in their basements, assuming they have basements in the first place...so camping it out is not viable.

Riots? Depends on how it's played out. If a competent team of FEMA officials come and force a mass evacuation, I see it working. Other than that, people are going to try to carry all their earthly possessions and their dish washer, along with traffic jams up the wazoo, and the inevitable fighting/looting.

But if you take the Ronin path and happen to have/find a basement-converted-bunker with about a foot of earth and a foot of concrete, the Rads should be cut from about 750 to 20-30~...no clue when it will dissipate during half-life.

BTW: I saw it on the news on TV that they had detected tiny amounts (like, far from dangerous) of radiation along the coast matching the windstreams coming from japan... so I wasn't just pulling it out my arse.....

As I said though, unless the main reactors blow.... then there is nothing to worry about....

if they do blow... Japan is mega fecked.... Hawaii will almost certainly get hit with dangerous radiation, and the west coast of NA could likely also be affected.
