So people decide they can just declare a disaster–skip the evidence on exposures and the clear cut evidence that no one suffered a significant exposure from Fukishima. It was a disaster because we say so. Exuse me–that’s horse s____.
I get so tired of these hand wringers who think everyone is going to get cancer because somebody declared a radiation “DISASTER” that will be terrible.
Even the most ugly nuclear reactor problem that ever happened (Chernobyl) that had no back up or safety mechanisms and was just a dry explosion that occurred in a plant that had no water protection, as is the practice in the West, so it was just a damn explosion in a big plant, but it still didn’t cause any radiation terribleness.
What should I say, all these anxious Japanese running around with face masks on should be worried? Worried and anxious is the measure of the problem. NO, I DON’T THINK SO.
So where do we start with these nannies? Or should I say ninnies?
