Given the excitement on the list, here's a photo taken in 2012 by the
Department of State. There are plenty of reliable links in the original
story that started this discussion.

This story has been run by various dubious websites for years. Already
in 2013 Snopes de3molished a similar story:

http://www.snopes.com/photos/technology/fukushima.asp

and it has done so with several other Fukushima stories. This is in
addition to the other links that Les posted.

While not wishing to downplay the dangers of radiation and radioactive
pollution, which are serious problems for people who live near Fukushima
or eat fish that has spent time near the leakage, it does us no good to
spread dubious stories from dubious sites.

If a science story is serious, then it should be possible to find it in
serious sources - the last place I'd expect to find serious news about
science or technology is a website that offers Truther stories like
"It?s Official: European Scientific Journal Concludes 9/11 Was A
Controlled Demolition"!
