The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

The longlasting impact of Fukushima nuclear disaster, and nuclear activities world-wide

Fairwinds 29th July 2020, Several weeks ago, our friend and colleague, Dr. Norma Field, professor
emeritus at the University of Chicago, published one of the best overviews
any of us at Fairewinds has read about the impact of the meltdowns at the
Fukushima Dai-ichi atomic power reactors upon the people and culture of
Japan.
Published on June 25, 2020, by The Asia-Pacific Journal: Japan
Focus, the article entitled – This Will Still Be True Tomorrow:
“Fukushima Ain’t Got the Time for Olympic Games”: Two Texts on
Nuclear Disaster and Pandemic is a must-read worldwide. Atomic power plants
and nuclear power waste dumps are located all over the world.
When one adds
in the burden of nuclear test labs, uranium mining, and the manufacturing
of atomic power fuel and nuclear weapons, the ecological weight of the
radioactive legacy we all live with is overwhelming.
In the aftermath of
Fukushima Dai-ichi, Dr. Field has written a well-researched and documented
analysis of what is happening today to its victims.
Tokyo Electric Company
(TEPCO), the owner of the Fukushima Dai-ichi reactors, and the government
of Japan have forged ahead with decisions that have compromised the health,
livelihood, and futures of victims and their families and their subsequent
children – for generations.
The government of Japan, in its allegiance to
nuclear power and the international military/industrial complex, has failed
miserably in its commitment to its citizens and severely impacted the
health and welfare of generations to come with its contaminated land, air,
water, and food.
