I've been watching the EPA no-registration-needed public live-online radiation monitor data page at Japanese
during the crisis.
Over the weekend, as fallout arrived in the United States, it remained- crippled. Today, as I post this, it is still dysfunctional.
The live data feeds are 'broken'; detectors are out of order at many stations; the phrase "No Radiation Levels of Concern Have Reached the United
States" is pasted everywhere over and over with no public discussion of data or alternative points of view.
Compare that to the transparency in Japan, where even any foreigner can intantly access real data at
The EPA has forced Americans to rely on reports filtered by media and the gov't during this crisis, or to fall back on fledgling private radiation
monitoring networks such as Radiation Network and Black Cat Systems.
Personally, I think the EPA's actions are deliberate, and reprehensible.
