Thanks to the Tweating of Rod Adams for bringing this to my attention. It’s a great little video, promoting an upcoming documentary that I look forward to seeing. The similarities between this and my own effort with Barry Brook are quite significant!!! Just for fun I thought I would post them side by side.

    1. I agree, both are very good, there were some great tricks in the other video but clearly we were thinking along the same lines.

      We will need some time tracking for the Attomikrabbit Blue Ribbon. Ours has been up for a while now, made the first 3,000 or so views pretty quickly and has quietly but steadily kept ticking over since then. Let’s see how this one does.

  1. I find it wonderful that committed advocates for nuclear power, with minimal dollars (and certainly no funding from the nuclear power industry) can create engaging, informative videos and other campaign materials, yet advertising hacks and PR professionals create dull and insipid stuff.

  2. 573 certified deaths due to evacuation-related stress at Fukushima. Zero due to radiation.

    “Japanese authorities recognize 573 deaths related to Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Catastrophe
    As reported by the Yomiuri Shimbun:
    “A total of 573 deaths have been certified as “disaster-related” by 13 municipalities affected by the crisis at the crippled Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant, according to a Yomiuri Shimbun survey.
    This number could rise because certification for 29 people remains pending while further checks are conducted.
    The 13 municipalities are three cities–Minami-Soma, Tamura and Iwaki–eight towns and villages in Futaba County–Namie, Futaba, Okuma, Tomioka, Naraha, Hirono, Katsurao and Kawauchi–and Kawamata and Iitate, all in Fukushima Prefecture.
    These municipalities are in the no-entry, emergency evacuation preparation or expanded evacuation zones around the nuclear plant, which suffered meltdowns soon after the March 11 disaster.
    A disaster-related death certificate is issued when a death is not directly caused by a tragedy, but by fatigue or the aggravation of a chronic disease due to the disaster. If a municipality certifies the cause of death is directly associated to a disaster, a condolence grant is paid to the victim’s family. If the person was a breadwinner, 5 million yen is paid…””
