Ever feel you're being drip-fed facts in the news for someone else's benefit? That's how I feel about Fukushima, especially when I read updates on radiation spikes and leaks.

My bugbear is how and when we're presented with ‘evidence' of how safe/risky an incident is. Like finding out later that radiation levels at the plant were initially underreported because they were so high, they didn't even register on the equipment used to measure them!

Nobody can predict the future. But I hate constantly playing catch-up when it comes to crucial information.
