What has made Greenpeace that subdued about Fukushima?

My answering comment to Greenpeace ludicrucious article on Fukushima:

My Japanese daughter 30 years, was born and lives in the city of Iwaki, Fukushima Prefecture, 60 km from the Fukushima Daiichi plant
 Therefore I have been following tightly the events of Fukushima.
I am the main administrator of Fukushima 311 Watchdogs with a FB page , FB group and 2 blogs.

It is true that the hoaxes and exaggerations of all kinds do not serve the cause of the victims in Fukushima.

However it is clear that your article has a minimalist effect that bothers me :
1 . You cite no 3 CORIUMS out of control
2 . You do not mention the volume of contaminated water released into the Pacific for almost 3 years
3 . You support the "dilution" of the contamination in the Pacific to be safe , though it is not oil , radionuclides are "dispersed" and do not lose their lethal capacity in their dispersion , unlike in dilution.
4 . You do no talk about all those people still living in highly contaminated areas that the government did not evacuate .
5 . You do no mention that the Japanese government wants to bring back the majority of evacuees to live in areas of high radioactivity.

The overall effect of the content of your article , despite its good title is minimalist and disturbing.
On the other hand your lack of public visibility vis-à -vis of Fukushima raises many questions.

Where is the spirit of Greenpeace 70s gone ?
