Japanese government called negligent in exposing unevacuated population to high levels of cesium-137


by Larry Geller

Today the IAEA has finally confirmed what some analysts have suspected for days: that the concentration per area of long-lived cesium-137 (Cs-137) is extremely high as far as tens of kilometers from the release site at Fukushima Dai-Ichi, and in fact would trigger compulsory evacuation under IAEA guidelines.

The Japanese government needs to act swiftly and hire George W Bush's PR guru's who fooled the American public into believing there were WMD's in Iraq. I can see it now, the new strategy will be to blame the liberal media for exaggerating the dangers of radiation.
