Not sure if this is GQ, IMHO, GD, or even CS, but we’ll try it here:
It seems like the information coming from Japan about the amount of radiation leaking from the reactors is extremely fuzzy, and is being filtered through government and industry spokespeople.
It doesn’t seem to me that this needs to be the case. Can’t anyone get their hands on the necessary monitoring equipment?
If I ran a news network, I’d buy a couple of monitors, put a nice bright red line on the dangerous levels, stick one in the ground in Sendai, one in Tokyo, and one in San Francisco. And put images of them up on my website and/or on live TV, 24/7.
Is that so hard?
