FukushimaMeltdown101113

Five years today since the Fukushima earthquake and subsequent nuclear power plant disaster. Some links for this anniversary.

The power plant is still leaking radioactive substances into the ocean, although obviously at far lower rates than immediately after the quake.

The mixed international impact of the nuclear disaster, at Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

We still lack basic answers to health and environmental questions around Fukushima’s impact.

A defense of nuclear, noting that no one directly died from Fukushima and that Japan is now replacing that nuclear power with coal. Here’s another, similar argument. I think these arguments are more than a little optimistic and ignore the mental health impact of those who had to move from their homes. Suicides need to be part of the death toll.

Building new nuclear plants is really risky and probably a poor idea.
