Hottest thing next season is the Oneill 4/3 with radiation blocking neoprene and fast dry technology. Plus if you glow in the dark night surfing is no problem.

Shortly after? If you consider 40 years a short amount of time.
If anyone deserves to be pissed at our government, it is the natives of the Bikini Atoll.
FYI, Chernobyl is only unsafe in certain areas. There are people living there now, though they have to be careful where they go and what they eat. The problem with that meltdown, was that they improperly contained it. It also doesn't have the benefit of seawater cooling and ocean dispersion.

there is a reason this news is not mainstream. its because nuclear energy equals big $$$$, and companies like GE own and control many of the media outlets.
people on here say there is no danger to anyone other than the people of Japan. FOOLS!!!
so why the most powerful world governments are concerned with overthrowing and destabilizing other countries, and feeding the public diversionary propaganda like gay marriage, royal babies, and so-called racially motivated crimes, they do nothing to address the real problems.
a lot of you here call this kind of info fear mongering. I call it reality.

And with tuna being caught in California waters contaminated with Fukishima radiation already http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-18239107 , like I said previously this is a serious enviornmental disaster that affects more than just Japan.
I'm not posting this to fear monger or complain. I'm only posting this to warn people so they can take steps to protect themselves. If you are eating Pacific tuna or other large pelagic fish at least take iodine tablets or better yet a natural source of iodine. Modafilan is a good product. http://www.modifilan-seaweed-extract....aspx?keyword=

Alright, next time I order some Pacific tuna at my local sushi joint I'll be sure to request a side of iodine tablets.
Also, I was unaware of the technology that alllows us to determine the source of radioactivity from thousands of miles away

Too Much Iodine
There are many dangers associated with taking iodine supplements, especially without consulting a physician first to determine what your specific condition is. The Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research (Mayo Clinic) explains that the problem with a thyroid conditions might not be a lack of iodine in your diet, but a lack of ability for your thyroid to absorb the iodine you are eating.
Taking more iodine supplements would not solve this problem, but it could overload your body with iodine and cause serious iodine poisoning of seizures, vomiting, delirium and other short-term problems. Just like having too little iodine can cause problems, too much iodine can also cause goiters and in extreme cases, permanent damage to your intestines and brain.
