Preventing government data failures

Data specialist Justhy Deva Prasad encourages the better use of available data -- with appropriate action the data call for -- by governments in particular to protect citizens from dangerous threats to their health and safety. He further shows how the failure to properly use data in disaster prevention strategies yielded bad results from Fukushima, Superstorm Sandy, ongoing California wildfires, andOroville Dam. And public officials should be held accountable for their failures.

True facts about ocean radiation and the Fukushima disaster

The Fukushima disaster has "led to some wild speculation on the widespread dangers of Fukushima radiation on the internet... I’m here to tell you that these posts are just plain garbage. While there are terrible things that happened around the Fukushima Power Plant in Japan; Alaska, Hawaii and the West Coast aren’t in any danger. These posts were meant to scare people (and possibly written by terrified authors). They did just that, but there is a severe lack of facts in these posts. Which is why I am here to give you the facts, and nothing but the facts."
