WAVE OF INFORMATION: The Internet is full of articles displaying beautifully illustrated maps, such as this one from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, purportedly showing imminent disaster, but there is very little accurate information attached that can help average citizens assess the actual risk. This map, for example, has been repurposed to show radiation fallout, but was actually intended to show tsunami activity.
