WARNING: HOAX EMAIL

 An Australian company, “Australian Radiation Services Pty. Ltd.” and long time corporate member of ARPS, has had its logo used inappropriately by hoaxers to try to justify a malicious and false map indicating nuclear fallout across northern Alaska and America from the Japanese presumably aimed to spread panic. 


The Managing Director of Australian Radiation Services , Dr Joe Young has indicated that neither he or his company have anything to do with this. They have a disclaimer on their website here .
 

Our advice to members is to confirm that this information is false when a query is raised about the map or the false information in it.

Japanese Reactor Safety following tsunami (Fukushima Daiichi)

As many of you are aware Japan has recently suffered a major tsunami caused by one of the largest earthquakes in recorded history. There has been (a still be determined) enormous loss of life just from this and the situation is still developing.  

What we do know is that there has been major failures in the local infrastructure and judging by the tsunami footage that has been aired, this is not surprising .
