[ RadSafe ] Regarding Greenpeace calculation of doses from Fukushima

Is there anybody on the RADSAFE list that has experience with the use of 
the Hotspot code? ( https://narac.llnl.gov/HotSpot/HotSpot.html)

As probably known to most of you Greenpeace grabs whatever media 
attention they can get (succeeding remarkably well in some countries), 
claiming that the recent WHO health effects study on Fukushima is 
covering up the true dose rates. Once again they refer to "independent 
nuclear expert" Oda Becker, her report after using Hotspot is here:

 From her previous reports there is no reason to trust anything she 
says, but it would be nice if anybody fluent with the code (and who 
knows it capabilities and limitations) can check the numbers and point 
out any flaws in Becker's calculations.

Best wishes,
