Messages show conflict within NRC after Japan's earthquake and tsunami


www.washingtonpost.com

While assuring Americans publicly that there was no danger, the NRC did not disclose one worst-case scenario, which did not rule out the possibility of radiation exceeding safe levels for thyroid doses in Alaska, the e-mails show.

This is yet another example where the government says one thing in private, while saying something different in public. I know they have to keep information suppressed during times of crisis, but if they legitimately though Alaskan residents were going to be exposed to dangerous levels of radiation, they have an obligation to inform the people.

Yes, thanks for posting, I read up on this today too.

You can be assured you will never be told the worst case scenario. That would only incite panic. Governments will tell you as it's happening, or more likely, after the fact.


It comes after a secret report by the Japanese government revealed last month that tens of millions of people may have had to be evacuated if the worst-case scenario hit Fukushima.

The 15-page internal document, which was not released over fears of widespread panic, cast doubt on whether the Japanese government could have coped with an evacuation on such an unprecedented scale.

Written on March 25, two weeks after the tsunami devastated the power plant, causing three reactors to melt down and generating hydrogen explosions that blew away protective structures, it revealed contingencies that would have required evacuation orders for residents within a 105-mile radius of the plant, including the whole of Tokyo.

I remember members here poo-pooing anyone that dared to say that US residents would see radiation from Fukushima.

Funny that the NRC thought that it could happen.
