Message to Japanese Friends

The origins of the Fukushima Crisis and the Financial Crisis are similar - a governmental integrity crisis and criminal abuse by large corporate interests at enormous expense to the People.

Message to Japanese Friends

The origins of the Fukushima Crisis and the Financial Crisis are similar - a governmental integrity crisis and criminal abuse by large corporate interests at enormous expense to the People.

_____

Los Angeles, March 18 – Joseph Zernik, PhD, released a message (1) sent to the organizers of the 16th World Criminology Congress, Japan, August 2011. The message expressed sympathy and confidence that by August 2011, it would be possible to hold an international meeting in Japan.

The message emphasized the similarities between the Fukushima Crisis and the Financial Crisis, the original theme of the Congress:

· Failure of national regulatory systems;

· Disregard by national governments of international duties and obligations;

· Lack of intergovernmental trust and failure of international communications and cooperation;

· Global failure of public trust in governmental integrity;

· Criminal abuse by large corporate interests at enormous expense to the People.

Dr Zernik’s contributions to the Congress included papers discussing corruption of the US and California justice system as inherent to the current Financial Crisis. (2,3)

Subject: Hoping you are all well, and praying for your future...

Dear :

My sympathy at this difficult time, hoping that you and your families are all well. As before, I also would like to confirm my commitment to participate in the 16th World Congress of Criminology in Japan, regardless of any inconveniences resulting from the Fukushima Crisis.

Long distance perspective may be arrogant, but it is offered in good will. Based on my reading of reports from several sources the emerging, likely view of the Fukushima Crisis is:

· The situation is of major catastrophic nature;

· Its dynamics may be placed under control;

· As a result of the types of fuels and fission products, the long-term dangers may by far surpass those of Chernobyl;

· Based on the construction, plants and process design, the progress of the disaster may be slower and more predictable than that of Chernobyl;

The original theme of the 16th World Criminology Congress appears more relevant by the day: The World Crisis. The Fukushima Crisis and the Financial Crisis share similar origins:

· Failure of national regulatory systems;

· Disregard by national governments of international duties and obligations;

· Lack of intergovernmental trust and failure of international communications and cooperation;

· Global failure of public trust in governmental integrity;

· Criminal abuse by large corporate interests at enormous expense to the People.

The conclusions one may draw are:

· Planning, based on reliable data, of immediate measures for the safety and protection of the People is a must;

· Inseparable is the need to regain credibility and gain effective cooperation, both at home and abroad;

· Reliable projections must be prepared, founded on reliable data and scientific methods, as soon as possible.

· It may be beneficial to immediately accept select internationally reliable, credible experts in physics/engineering/medicine/logistics to get involved in intimate raw data analysis, interpretation, and domestic as well as international communications.

All the best,

Joseph Zernik, PhD
