More on Fukushima

March 18, 2011

A follow-up to my last post: Fukushima one week on: Situation ‘stable’, says IAEA.

The situation at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear powerplant in Japan, badly damaged during the extremely severe earthquake and tsunami there a week ago, continues to stabilise. It is becoming more probable by the day that public health consequences will be zero and radiation health effects among workers at the site will be so minor as to be hard to measure. Nuclear experts are beginning to condemn the international hysteria which has followed the incident in increasingly blunt terms.

And consider this, at the end of the article:

As one who earns his living in the media these days, I can only apologise on behalf of my profession for the unbelievable levels of fear and misinformation purveyed this week. I have never been so ashamed to call myself a journalist.

  1. one reporter down, 4 million to go. It took him this long to realize how irresponsible and hysterical most news coverage is?
