  1. Damage to health and environment – done by TEPCO

    State supports TEPCO with money of the japanese people

    Furure Compensation for vicitims will be paid by the people, not by TEPCO.

    Dr Foreman will comment shortly on this matter of the money

    # The IAEA will call Fukushima “not as bad as Chernobyl”

    # The IAEA will ignore all kinds of cancer created by the Fukushima catastrophe, except thyroid cancer among children, women and men – like in Chernobyl

    # The IEA and WHO will ignore the rising infant mortality and the mutagenic impact.

    It is a little early to say what the IAEA will do or say, my own view is that based on the nature of the accident that the Fukushima accident is a less dangerous accident than Chernboyl

    # The Reconstruction will begin, mostly old people will return into contaminated areas, with or without Recommendation of the Government and IAEA / WHO – like in Chernobyl

    I hold a view that until it is shown to be safe, the 30 km area should be out of bounds to all people except for radiological workers who are doing work which is to mitigate the accident, clean up the environment or perfrom humanitarian work. I would also extend the list of excuses for a radiological worker to enter the exclusion zone to include animal welfare work, while the exposure limit (turn back limits) for work to save animals or prevent animals suffering should be set lower than that for the protection of humans I still think that where possible that pets and farmyard animals should be rescued or at the least killed in a humane manner. I hold the view that leaving pets and farmyard animals to suffer is deeply wrong.

      Comment shortened for reasons of bevity.
