Nuclear-hit Fukushima gets nod for 2020 baseball

Sure, the area could use the economic help, but how many world teams are going to send their young athletes to an area with a cancer generating machine?

Party like it's 1999. To be serious, though, Japan is on a lot of earthquake fault lines, and Tokyo is in the shadow of a dormant volcano (Mount Fuji)... who can survive an unexpected calamity more readily than Olympic level athletes anyway?

all the paronoia based on pseudo-science.

It is not going to pose any risk on your life if you only spend a few days in the city.

People should really start to make decision based on rationality and scientific facts, not ungrounded fear.

The Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant is over 30 miles southeast of the city of Fukushima - a city with a population of almost 300,000. In the city, the radiation level is less than 1 microsievert/hour. That's less than 9 sieverts annually. The average American is exposed to more than 6 sieverts annually from natural (air, food, cosmic radiation, etc.) and artificial (medical, air travel, etc.) sources.

And, yes, anyone with a Gieger counter in Japan can confirm this.

What, did you think they've decided to turn the plant's cooling towers into Olympic baseball stadiums?

Only if you have no idea what 'PC' means.

I hope canada sends you as part of their hurling team. Make sure to drink the water near the plant.

Right, it was purposely ignorant, like a joke. As if the area is marginalized and it's a way of treating the place fairly.

How near the plant?

We all realize that this is not actually / literally happening at the plant, right?
