Here is a shortened URL to bring up the excellent arrticle provided by 
Jaro about the chemical damages from the disasterous quake and tsunami.

An aside: I also followed the quake news very closely and noted 
considerable conflicting information. But under the drastic 
circumstances, I was only surprised by the quantity of detail being 
reported . And I question the value of speculating about deliberate 
misinformation. Just a huge number of two-legged fragile humans and a 
few lemons trying to cope with massive death and destruction -- would 
one prefer to have a group of armadillos handle the problems? (g)
