• Is most of the cleanup complete?
• Are the people of Japan, especially the children, Ok?
• Are the Japanese evacuees returning home?
• Are the oceans OK?
Sadly, the answers are no. And, we are left with the questions what does the future look like for the Fukushima Prefecture and for Japan as a whole?
What lessons should we learn? We have learned that no matter how much electricity is generated by nuclear power, this technology has the potential to destroy the fabric of an entire country overnight; Fairewinds discussed this tragedy in the video: 40 good years and one bad day. Most of all, the nuclear power debacle at Fukushima Daiichi has made it clear that businesses love nuclear power for its incredible profits, but only if taxpayers continue to subsidize its incredible risks and catastrophic post-mishap costs.
Truthfully, the world’s energy paradigm is not hopeless. Germany has made the courageous decision to eliminate all existing nuclear plants before 2022 and will not build any new nukes.
It’s up to us as individuals if we want to help create such change in order to protect our environment, our economy, and the health and safety of our citizens.
Right now, world governments are heavily influenced by the money and power of the nuclear industry. It is up to individuals like you to make change happen. As the poet June Jordan wrote, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.

The operator of Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant says it might eventually have to dump hundreds of thousands of tonnes of contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean. It's been three years since the nuclear disaster, but TEPCO is still struggling to clear up, with occasional radioactive leaks still happening. RT has been following the disaster since it began.
Fairewinds Arnie Gundersen: Nuclear Power: Their Profits, Our Risks
During the three long and frightening years since the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi, the world has heard less and less about this manmade disaster. Money, power, and engineering hubris were put ahead of the lives and health of the people of Japan and the northern hemisphere as radiation releases continue to leave the site and migrate into the environment. This catastrophe is the world's worst industrial disaster. Decommissioning and dismantling the reactors will take decades and complete cleanup is at least a century away ~ if ever. In this film Fairewinds Energy Education's Arnie Gundersen gives an update on the state of Fukushima Daiichi three years later.
