Japanese Govt Lied About Radiation Levels Because...

Date: Fri, 15 Apr 2011 21:25:11 -0300

...those pesky foreigners didn't trust them and were leaving the country
anyway.

What's the logic here?  The govt lies because people don't believe them so
people trust them less and the govt lies more?

Oh, and the partial meltdown of reactors 1 and 3 was confirmed yesterday.  Now
that it's not in teh news any more...

Grrrr.

"Molten nuclear fuel in three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant is
likely to have burned through pressure vessels"

"The report, which is to be submitted to the International Atomic Energy
Agency (IAEA), said fuel rods in reactors No 1, 2 and 3 had probably not only
melted, but also breached their inner containment vessels and accumulated in
the outer steel containment vessels."

Politics Behind Fukushima Mess

From: andrew cooke <andrew@...>

Date: Mon, 13 Jun 2011 10:19:12 -0400

This NY Times article explains the political mess and lack of trust behind the
emergency response.  It8s this kind of problem - not the easy-to-solve,
clean-cut technical issues - that proponents of nuclear power need to fix.
