The 'Wuala Fukushima Archive'

I created this public group on Wuala to initiate the collective archival of evidence about the Fukushima disaster. This is also an experiment about the possibilities offered by tools like wuala. http://www.wuala.com/The%20Fukushima%20Archive/. You may join wuala and the group to contribute. Feel free to use my referall promocode if you're not already a member: G6NAM4KB6F3C7BM4K4PJ. Note however that I do not make friends on wuala but rather only communicate through groups. Also, I am not involved in any way with wuala :-)

About radioactivity

The clever radiation dose chart

The link below shows that we must be prudent when dramatizing the effects of radioactivity. http://www.ufunk.net/en/photoblog/un-excellent-tableau-dexplication-des-doses-de-radiation-par-xkcd/ Do not however confuse irradiation and contamination. The latter consists in absorbing radio elements, which is very toxic, because of a very local effect of radiation on organs..
