Our group began out of a live blog run by Reuters during the Great East Japan Earthquake and the related Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident. We wanted the real news and a way to do something about this unprecedented tragedy. Our strength is in our diversity. People from around the globe, from varied professions and industries, came together to research, investigate, analyze and educate about this ongoing incident. Using the knowledge of the crowd for research and analysis of both the technical and humanitarian aspects of complex incidents and concerns without focusing on profit.
We have no affiliation or funding from any government, industry, or university.

Brilliant work Nancy.
Very nice Nancy, you covered it.
“Unprecedented Tradgedy” is a characterization of Fukushima that I find somewhat intruiging. Do we mean an “unprecedented tradgedy” in the realm of nuclear? Certainly, for instance, it has not eclipsed the tradgedy-ness of the 1860’s civil war killing over 50 million in China. are we being prophetic here? That could really be crazy, though unfortunately, not as crazy as it should. However, as things stand now, if we are looking to the future a bit in the terms of the unprecedented aspect of Fuku, then it will, and this is unarguably certainly regrettable, be eclipsed. (In other words, if nuclear is to be our downfall, and according to current trajectories, those with true insight would have a hard time arguing against that, then the “next one”, or at least a future one will eclipse it considerably.) It would be roughly analagous to saying that WWII was an unprecedented catastrophe, but won’t hold a candle to WWIII, which of course, conventional wisdom will say by default will be the last war our biosphere will be able to handle. Wonder if almost the same thing can’t be said about the
oh-so-expensive while being cheap prospect of nuclear power, i.e., the next one will by default be the last one.
Awesome – keep up the good work!
