Gee, who could have foreseen this outcome?

Inconceivable!  There appears to have been scaremongering during the Fukushima nuclear disaster

Rather than stand as a warning of the radiation danger posed by nuclear power, in other words, Fukushima has become a reminder that uninformed fears aren’t the same as actual risks.

This is an unbelievably reasonable report, especially given its association with the word “bloomberg”.  It should also remind us how much to trust media professionals when their emotions are involved.  

About anything.

    Scaremongering you say?


    The media would NEVER lie!

    They would never compare Fukushima with Hitler’s bunker! They would never claim that homeless people, minors and foreigners were forced by the government and TEPCO to do the work during the crisis! Never! People would never storm the shops to buy Geiger counters, even when they lived thousands of miles away!

    And S&R teams would never flee from radioactive death clouds that didn’t even exist!

    That would never….

    Wait a second… That did happen! In Germany!

    I feel I’m tripping over an icicle and missing the iceberg. Safety and Rescue teams fled radiohorror in Germany…? I need educating.

      Well, maybe I worded it wrong. The German team sent to Japan back then fled from radiohorror, and as result got removed from the front lines by the Japanese. They abandoned their mission and equipment shortly after that and ran back home to Germany (they were deployed not even a week, I think it was like 6 days) bashing the Japanese relief efforts, saying there was nothing to rescue anymore and claiming to have narrowly escaped all the radiations.

      Funnily enough, all the teams from all other countries stayed and a day after the Germans ran… the Turks arrived.
