All I can say for sure is I live in Washington state about 100 miles from the coast. About a month after that thing blew up, my shoulders burned a little when it rained here. I found out the radiation level was 131 times "safe" levels at that time on the EPA's own site. They said it was safe for the first 2-3 weeks and then shut up. When a groups found out it was unsafe about a month later, the EPA said the facts were on their site. But they never told the people it was unsafe, so they were hiding it.
I go out in the rain now and haven't felt any burning. So just using that gauge, it doesn't seem as bad to me right now.
But having said that, I totally believe that mess is getting worse by the day and they need to do something. And I remember posting a interview done on some national news agency where some guy had invented a process that neutralizes radiation in about a 1/2hr. So they do have some process that could make things better there. But maybe that situation is so big, that process would not make a dent in it? That's all I know.
