Weather agency ordered to reveal data on projected radiation spread | Kyodo News

The government has ordered the Japan Meteorological Agency to promptly disclose its data on the projected spread of radioactive materials from the troubled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station, the government's top spokesman said Monday.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said in a news conference that he had told the agency that it ''should have made the data public'' along with an adequate explanation.

According to Edano, the agency did not disclose the information because it was part of reference materials compiled in response to a request from the International Atomic Energy Agency, and it feared that releasing the data could cause misunderstanding about the spread of radiation.

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
