… The report not only revealed some holes in Hawaii’s dissemination process for such alerts and “all clear” messages, but also showed that the message lacked instructions.
If or when a real alert goes out, the CDC researchers suggested, it “should include clear instructions for persons in the affected area to carry out during an emergency.”
(Interestingly, the CDC almost gave a talk last year — scheduled for Jan. 16, 2018 — about what people should do in the event of a nuclear detonation. But the agency canceled that talk to instead discuss the severe flu season.)
Still, the CDC does have some guidelines online for “radiation emergencies” if you’re interested in being in the know. (Hint: You should go indoors and stay there.)…
Oh if only I had the naivete displayed in this article. Unfortunately the scientific method of hypothesis testing (not paranoid speculation or an equally irrational blind trust in very old and corrupt institutions) has forced me to consider a rather more sinister interpretation of this particular event and the larger paradox of washington’s disregard for civil preparedness in the face of its own planned nuclear first strike on russia.
Occam’s razor is only reliable when a relatively complete and random sample of information is available. It works very poorly in an environment where censorship and deception are the rule.
