Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
See upthread.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Environmental activist group Greenpeace said it had confirmed radiation levels of up to 10 microsieverts per hour in Iitate village, 40 kilometres northwest of the plant, and urged the government to evacuate the area. "It is clearly not safe for people to remain in Iitate, especially children and pregnant women, when it could mean receiving the maximum allowed annual dose of radiation in only a few days," said its radiation safety expert Jan van de Putte. "The authorities must stop choosing politics over science and determine evacuation zones around the Fukushima nuclear plant that reflect the radiation levels being found in the environment."

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
