Hi Sandy,
My comments earlier today were never meant to minimize that the Fukushima  
accident is and was a disaster. If they were perceived as such, it was not  
my intent.

This being said however, someone claiming that many millions of people  
will die, to agree that fuel rods were being blasted from the reactors a  
mile high, that "white smoke" showed that Am, and Pu were being released  
 from the reactors,  etc., etc. goes well beyond "mis-information,  
deliberate or otherwise ".

I agree that TEPCO and the Japanese government did an amazingly  
incompetent job in communicating with the public about what was happening,  
which contributed to the panic. The US State Dept. is also complicit to  
promoting unjustified fear in that the US our government representatives  
spoke of possibly evacuating Americans in Japan to 80 km radius [when the  
Japanese government has put forward a recommendation at one point of 50  
km] as I recall, and there was even talk of our government evacuating US  
troops stationed there.

But the manner in which anti-nuclear activists sought to cynically  
terrorize the public is still reprehensible and irresponsible.
