Radiation prediction

More Australians will die from cancers caused solar radiation (skin cancer) over the next month than Japanese will die over the next year from cancers from the nuclear reactor problems.

Very conservative I would say BOAB. Very unlikely to be many deaths in Japan with the possible exception of workers. But if they have been managed properly, they'll be okay too.

Yeah, very conservative. However, I wrote that at the height of the scare about the reactors when the panic was at its worst. I felt like saying that more Australian's would die in one day, but thought that would be quite over the top. Now, barring a complete stuff up, that would be more accurate.
