Revealed: British government's plan to play down Fukushima | Environment | The Guardian

"This has the potential to set the nuclear industry back globally," wrote one official at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), whose name has been redacted. "We need to ensure the anti-nuclear chaps and chapesses do not gain ground on this. We need to occupy the territory and hold it. We really need to show the safety of nuclear."
The Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith, who sits on the Commons environmental audit committee, condemned the extent of co-ordination between the government and nuclear companies that the emails appear to reveal.
"The government has no business doing PR for the industry and it would be appalling if its departments have played down the impact of Fukushima," he said.

And Zac, how may people died from Fukushima radiation and how many will die from lack of cheap energy in the future? And all that guff about windmills or solar the government puts out in collaboration with the green energy industry, you are on the baricades against that as well?
