The US government has paid the NCRP, a private company largely sponsored by the nuclear industry to draw up new nuclear disaster policy for the country. Of course this new policy not only drastically increases what are considered acceptable doses it drastically changes priorities in the event of a nuclear power plant disaster.
Most government policies worldwide have put public health first, trying to assure that people are out of harms way or at least limited in exposure. The new NCRP written plan puts business first and reduces the burden on the offending nuclear company who made the mess.
“According to the draft report, “one must realize that there are other important factors besides human health that should be considered in the decision-making process.” It says “public financial burdens, restoring key infrastructures, and resuming normal commercial activities, as well as balancing the roles and interests of affected stakeholders” are also important factors.”
Can’t have pesky things like public safety getting in the way of commerce…..
One EPA official explaining the changing mindset of the government made this statement in relation to cleanup from a Fukushima type disaster in the US.
“U.S. residents are used to having “cleanup to perfection,” but will have to abandon their “not in my backyard” mentality in such cases, Kudarauskas said. “People are going to have to put their big boy pants on and suck it up.”
The report from National Review goes into even more detail on the changes and that the White House seems willing to accept the nuclear industry sponsored report as new government policy.
As For the NCRP this is a list of their corporate funding:
Global Dosimetry Solutions, Inc.
Nuclear Energy Institute (The nuclear power industry’s lobbyist group)
