Nuclear Info Japan Guide v 1.5

Nuclear Info Japan Guide v 1.5

Ratings: (0)|Views: 121|Likes:
Deciphering reports, on Nuclear Accidents in Japan, can be challenging for the Layman, due to lots of technical terminology, poorly understood by news media, some of which have a scare-mongering agenda, risks of persons who share responsibility for inadequate mitigation of predictable disasters, making self-serving statements. People can be particularly alarmed by reports on radiation, and distracted by seeing comparisons to Chernobyl. Here I try to share credible primary sources of information, translating geek into understandable for the layman, providing radiation info in perspective, and showing the big picture on nuclear accidents.

I have several sister research notes documents, including a glossary of the terminology, time line of the nuclear accident events, lessons which should be learned, and directory of maps.

Introduction (1Mar 25)
 As I learn more about what’s going on in Japan, I increasinglysee questions from people, in various professional and social networking sites, who have been duped by the news media wild speculations and poor reporting. They obviously need help getting at the truth. Of course some people can be so vulnerable to conspiracy theory beliefs, that I cannot helpthem. The issue is who we want to believe more: news media; government; industry; UnitedNations; academia. Can we get at truth by comparing what the different info sources haveto say? I believe we can get besttruth available, by going to primary sources, the people whoare doing things, then sharing statements about what they are doing. Yes, the statements canbe self-serving: something went wrong, it wasn’t our fault, we doing the best we can. Butsuch information can be vastly superior to those by people who do not understand thesituation, are interpreting statements from many sources, don’t know which are relevantexperts and which are propagandists promoting an agenda, or sales pitch.
