Reports from Fukushima 5 years later – part 2

As the fifth anniversay of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan approaches, Arnie Gundersen, Chief Engineer at Fairewinds Energy Education, is on a tour of the affected areas measuring radioactivity, listening to reports of those who survived and providing accurate information about what is going on to residents, local activists and the media.

He has witnessed inadecuate and futile clean-up attempts, met with those displaced by the contamination and suffering from the effects of radiation, and heard about discrimination today recalling the terrible experiences of the Hibakusha – the survivors of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki 70 years ago.

In this second podcast Arnie talks about his visit to Fukushima, the millions of bags of contaminated material, the inadecuate way the government intends to dispose of them, the woeful attempts at clean up, the distribution of plutonium around the countryside and the scale of the disaster compared to the detonation of a nuclear bomb.
