Follow-up On Fukushima

Hi all...
The year 2011 has been a real bugger for the people of Japan - especially those on the north east coast.

Here's a piece my wife found on the Toronto Star newspaper website that gives some info on Fukushima and some of the effects from the nuclear disaster that hit following the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011.

DAI-ICHI.

Cheers
Andrew Joseph

  2. I think I've come across your blog before.
    Like!.
    Maybe you would enjoy "Spike Japan", also a gaijin blogger.
    I'll come back here when I have more time..."Corporal Punishment" is a fascinating anecdote.

  3. Thank you oh Anonymous one. I haven't been anonymous in decades! I guess I've made my life an open book. The corporal punishment anecdote is a shameful event in my life, and if it wasn't for Peter's bravery (his story is in that blog!), I may have simply have never mentioned it. Peter's my hero. I always figured I was alone in my actions - and perhaps I still am, but at least I don't feel that way.

  4. Fukushima Daiichi was there for about 40 years before it had its accident. There were many earthquakes in Japan over that time period.


    The Japanese people are not happy.

    Many realize a significant portion of Japanese soil is not suitable for habitation. Just last October a leaked Tepco documented indicated the total amount of plutonium and neptunium emitted from the plant. This stuff sticks around for millions of years...

    If you haven't seen the dispersion maps for plutonium they are published here:
