Re: 8.9 earthquake leads to Tsunami and fires in Japan

The gamma radiation itself will only have a local effect. The real danger is the radioactive waste and particulate that can be carried in dust or liquid that will continue to produce radiation.

EDIT: Which reminds me, anyone ever see the short documentary "Aftermath: Population Zero." by National Geographic? It is a neat little piece about what would happen to the world if all the humans were wiped out, focusing on long term consequences of our actions. Very interesting when in the first week all safety measures on nuclear power plants fail and they "explode".
