Prevailing Winds

In what the authorities call an unlikely event, here is a picture of the upper level winds from Japan and the site of the problem nuclear reactors, as it may apply to us in the future. It appears that the critical difference between these plants ans Chernobyl, is the latter spewed radioactivity far into the stratosphere, but even in that case it only affected Scandanavia, a short distane away.

Still, this is uncharted territory with a possible 6 reactors going into total meltdown. At the very least, it would seem probably that Japan is going to lose the use of a very large area of the north, witch will most likely become a wasteland such as exists in the Ukraine.
