unless maybe you're underestimating fukushima's capacity to continue spewing isotopes. can we seriously believe their claim to have it all sorted in 6-9 months?

if the species is stubbornly self-destructive enough, what else would cause our elders and betters to reconsider? nothing coming up for me...

the question is already answered once and for all.  

But the damage is never measured correctly.  

The image is stuffing corpses under the floorboards and then denying there is any problem or anything to see.  

Your question is like asking when they will run out of unused (under) floor space.  But then, won't they just move on to the walls and ceiling?  It's a big house . . .

can't deny something damn stinky's going on for ever.
