23. And the danger from doing that is ...

... a shitload less than the damage being done at this very moment in your own country
by something a lot less powerful than a typhoon:

>> “You have 100, if not thousands, of wells underwater right now and we have no idea what
>> those wells are leaking,” East Boulder County United spokesman Cliff Willmeng said
>> Monday. “It’s very clear they are leaking into the floodwaters though.”

>> “There are over 20,000 oil and gas wells in Weld County alone,”
>> “Prior to the floods we knew that the oil and gas industry was left to police itself.

If people would just step away from their superstitions about "scary radiation" and
recognise the far larger problems around today, the world would be a lot better place.

As it is, the fossil fuel spokesmen/women are just pissing themselves laughing at
how TEPCO is being (rightfully) pilloried for their gross greedy incompetence while
NO-ONE does a damn thing about the historic & ongoing health damage from their
own fortune-building careers.
