[Marxism] Fukushima hasn't gone away

proof positive you (and now Jeff) didnt actually read the article.  Quote:

"""Continuous, intense radiation, at 530 sieverts an hour (4 sieverts is 
a lethal level), was widely reported in early February 2017 – as if this 
were a new phenomenon. It’s not. Three reactors at Fukushima melted down 
during the earthquake-tsunami disaster on March 3, 2011, and the 
meltdowns never stopped. Radiation levels have been out of control ever 
since. As Fairewinds Energy Education noted in an email February 10:

Although this robotic measurement just occurred, this high radiation 
reading was anticipated and has existed inside the damaged Unit 2 atomic 
reactor since the disaster began nearly 6 years ago…. As Fairewinds has 
said for 6 years, there are no easy solutions because groundwater is in 
direct contact with the nuclear corium (melted fuel) at Fukushima Daiichi.

What’s new (and not very new, at that) is the official acknowledgement 
of the highest radiation levels yet measured there, by a factor of seven 
(the previously measured high was 73 sieverts an hour in 2012). The 
highest radiation level measured at Chernobyl was 300 sieverts an hour. 
What this all means, as anyone paying attention well knows, is that the 
triple-meltdown Fukushima disaster is still out of control."""

so, while the radiation levels may indeed be in a state of SAME, our 
SAMPLING of that state is getting more accurate as we get closer. TEPCO 
hid behind the lower numbers, but now that the robotic cameras are 
getting knocked out after 2 hours of use, robotic cleaning's got problems

does "IN" have a meaning here?
