The Ministry of Truth in Japan, rather than calming people, has been doing the opposite, with their bizarre insistence that everything is just fine, as things get demonstrably worse.
On Saturday, Japan’s government spokesperson Yukio Edano said radiation levels around the plant did not rise, but actually decreased after the explosion. He added that pressure in the reactor was also decreasing.
You hear that, all you silly worriers. Explosions in nuclear reactors are beneficial.
“The government says there are no large leaks of radiation but just in case they have initiated an evacuation that has been expanded from an initial radius of 10 kilometres to now 20 kilometres”
The intial evacuation area was 3 kilometers.
The US media has been trotting out a steady stream of “experts” to assure us that everything in a nuclear plant thousands of miles from them which they have no access to is just totally safe so all you need to stop that foolish worrying.
