Fukushima 50 \”expect to die\”

So goes the headline:

Japan nuclear crisis: Fukushima 50 \’expect to die\’
Workers who have been fighting to bring the reactors under control at Japan’s strick nuclear plant expect to die from radiation sickness, according to the mother of one of the men.

Of course, knowledge of one\’s own eventual mortality is a sign of being an adult. But the actual amount of radiation these workers have been exposed to is insufficient to be the reason that any of them will die.

Note that it\’s the mother of one of them saying this, it\’s opinion, not fact, and yet the newspaper is gleefully shouting it around the world.

Do the Barclay\’s own shares in a wind farm or something?
