NEI’s Resources on Japan

If you haven’t visited NEI’s Japan Earthquake page, well, you really ought to. It’s grown – enormous – in the last three weeks and provides a lot of good information about issues that have swirled around events at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

Information about Health and Radiation Safety

Emergency Planning: Protecting the Pubic and Environment – with a graphic showing the American approach to ensuring public safety

A growing FAQ about the events in Japan – helping to counter myths and provide solid information

A set of Fact Sheets and Graphics describing the workings of various kinds of reactors, including Fukushima Daiichi.

A large collection of quotes from American politicians and other policymakers with their views on Japan and the American nuclear energy industry.

And, as they say on infomercials, much much more. I think it’s fair to assert that NEI has provided more good information, data, graphics and links about Japan and Fukushima Daiichi than any other site on the Internet. And despite NEI’s role as a nuclear advocate, nothing is sugar coated or spun for advantage. It all aims for the highest level of unvarnished fact possible.
