MIT Scientist Not Worried About Japan Reactors

Japan 1

lenwood writes "Detailed essay by MIT engineering research scientist Josef Oehmen stating in detail why he's not concerned about the safety of Japan's nuclear reactors. "The situation is serious, but under control... there (was) not and will not be any significant release of radioactivity." Very interesting read, and he's been updating it based on comments."

OMG the nuke industry is good at this.

Too many things to mention wrong with this "analysis" by a non-expert, not the least of which is this: http://morgsatlarge.wordpress.com/2011/03/13/why-i-am-not-worried-about-japans-nuclear-reactors/#comment-15 [wordpress.com]

People wouldn't hate nuclear power so much if its outreach organizations were capable of not lying. This is the largest media effort I've ever seen by industry, and its purpose is not education, it's PR damage control. They need to shut the hell up if they're not working to be helpful.
