Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Plus, despite the criticism, I would say the Japanese have been more transparent than the Soviets and maybe that the Americans at TMI.

Though that may be a function of not being able to hide the fact that a nuclear plant had been affected by the tsunami and was on battery power on the first day.

So, in what may be my last act of "advising", I'll advise you to cut the jargon. -- My old PhD advisor, to me, 26/2/11

I do get a sense that much of the outcry against hiding information in Japan is due to failure to find or correctly interpret relevant information. This morning I watched a news channel where an 'expert' admonished the Japanese government for not setting up monitoring stations in the 100 km zone around the plant and publish the results regularly – not knowing they do so for two weeks already, on multiple sites.
