A Quick Note: Please Take My Dad’s Interview Transcripts & Audio
Posted by Evelyn Mervine
I just wanted to make a quick note here that although my geology blog Georneys is copyright protected, I really want people to take the information in my dad’s interviews and distribute it as widely as possible.
People are already posting links and taking excerpts, which is great. If you want to take the audio files & full transcripts and post them anywhere else– on your website or blog– please do so. If you can link back to this blog and send me an email ([email protected]), that would be great. But don’t wait to hear back from me– just take away.
These interviews are not about me or my dad or this blog– they’re about providing, to the best of our ability, information to the general public about the nuclear disaster.
Also, I am very sorry about the echos in today’s interview. When I tested the software, everything worked great. I don’t know what happened. Hopefully this won’t happen tomorrow. Again, the transcript will be up later today.
Don't worry too much about the audio issue. Things like that can happen… Especially given that it's a sneaky problem that only starts 9 minutes into the recording, it's fine in the start.
I have been trying to keep a list of public Geiger counters posted to the web. I have plotted what I have found on a google map link below. Hope it's useful.http://bit.ly/i8vpNB
You could try a program called Super from erightsoft. It is free and converts just about anything to anything.http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.htmland then Audacity is a free audio editor. It has a filter to remove unwanted noise.http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
is a very good choice, one should be able to filter out all exta noise
Hi Evelyn,I'm living in Tokyo right now. So far there is no clear description of the worst case scenario. In the interviews with your dad, he doesn't describe which would be the worst case. For example I would like to know, how worst or not it would be compared to other disaster in the explicit condition of a breach in the container and a full exposition of the fuel. How bad is that? Worse than Chernobyl or not?
