Fukushima, One Year Later
Fukushima one year on. I used to think that the lack of attention on Fukushima was just one of those out of sight out of mind things driven by the lack of coverage by mainstream media inducing some type of lethargy on the American people. So here we are 1 year down the road and the ‘fallout’ literally and figuratively continues and will do so for many years to come. There are still a few voices that continue to show concern, Arnie Gundersen among others continues to be, in my opinion, the most balanced and educated among all those following this catastrophe.
Of course, we still can’t really trust the information that is being fed us by MSM. After all the Japanese government and Nuclear industry are all confessed liars. The damage to the environment continues, hot wreckage is still washing ashore everywhere not to mention the huge debris field in the Pacific ocean. The human damage is, as expected, most obvious the closer to ground zero one gets with Japanese families financially and emotionally devastated. It seems the Japanese government just wants to ignore the incredible damage and just sweep it all under the rug. Nonetheless, damage there is and will continue to exist for decades as the radiation refuses to subside according to authorities wishes and the winds and ocean current carry the devastation far and wide.
I was just in southern California and there is a very large Nuclear power plant there, right on the ocean and fault line. In my opinion it is only a question of time before we see an ‘accident’ a la Fukushima occur. All we need is a large earthquake and tsunami and we are in the same boat….but this time the devastation will be worse in our country. I wonder when we will learn….
