As per snopes
, US government
agencies have stated that the diluting effect of the Pacific would make the level of water-borne radiation reaching US shores to be undetectable. I tend to believe it. Given how alot of wildlife is positively thriving around Chernobyl, I don't expect that Fukushima radiation would be causing any measurable effects to wildlife on US shores.
I'm thinking an embargo on Japan like the one on Cuba would get things corrected pretty fast.....
Um, the 60+ year embargo on Cuba
has done ... what exactly? Other than shuttng Americans out of Cuban beach resorts, and Cuba being unwilling hosts to a US naval base and "resort"?
Anyway, as nations go, the Japanese have proven to be pretty effective at recovering from big disasters - their recoveries and rebuilding from previous earthquakes is inspiring. I'm not that worried about Fukushima.
