No, that wouldn't be good enough. But I did a quick look at the article 
and the links supporting its conclusions and can say that they appear no 
more credible than the one about the Rothschilds. I'd expect that the 
links forwarded by Les (which I haven't read, don't need to) would 
contain more trustworthy information.

Specifically what I noted immediately were claims of the sort:

"Iodine-131 levels in the air that were up to 300 times above the normal 
background levels..... as high as nearly 1,000 times background levels"

This is laughable. Iodine 131 has a half-life of only 8 days. Thus it 
essentially doesn't persist in the environment and 1000x background 
levels would still be almost nothing.

I would never downplay the dangers of low-level radiation or radioactive 
isotope contamination, since a safe "lower limit" probably doesn't 
exist, and awareness of its danger has consistently increased over the 
last century or so. However comparing the danger of radioactive 
contamination diluted by something as large as the pacific ocean with 
the REAL danger faced by Japanese living near (or not so near) to 
Fukushima, is even worse than comparing the danger of "terrorism" in 
Western Europe to what people face in Syria.
