Fukushima Science Denial?
The San Jose Mercury News reports on a couple prominent scientists who say radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown will likely be little, if any, threat to those of us on the west coast.
As should be expected nowadays, the first comment to the story is from someone claiming the scientists are wrong, if not lying, and that one is just a shill for the nuclear industry. Where have we heard that sort of thing before? In this case, who is being the denier?
In fairness to that commentator, if the radiation were a deathly threat to the entire coast, what would we likely be hearing from the powers- that- be? Perhaps the same thing we're already being told?
