When it happened I was then listening to the German television channel ZDF. A reporter from a Tokyo hotel was complaining that he would not receive regular fresh information from the Japanese on what was going on in Fukushima and he stated that it is known that the Japanese regularly hide the truth in these affairs.

No mention of the distress of the population, the tens of thousands of death, the tens of thousands of blessed, the desperate situation of the survivors who had lost everything from the tsunami, or were searching for the lost members of their family and their friends. And of course, the journalist was expecting that the Japanese would give priority to inform him at short intervals about the situation in Fukushima while he was drinking his beer in a Tokyo hotel, and would please provide the information in German if possible.

What an insult to the people of Japan !

This was a journalist, who are you Sander C. Perle?

Listening to the YouTube there is a lot of truth as to what is being stated. The public was misled, mis-information, deliberate or otherwise was the norm, so to question Chris regarding just his comments on Fukushima, is not as pertinent as one could say about other topics discussed here on Radsafe. Fukushima was a disaster with serious consequences and I am not confident that we have all of the facts as to what happened, what the current state is and how stable the reactors are, even today.
