August 14, 20154:FUKUSHIMA – SELLING OUT THE NEXT GENERATION
August 11, 2015 / Japan has restarted its first nuclear reactor to generate power since 2013.
And that’s really bad news.
Remember what happened in 2011? Why Japan closed all of its reactors abruptly and why we’re still tracing the spread of radioactive material across our Pacific Coast and into the atmosphere?
First there was an earthquake that did significant damage to that island country – and then a tsunami quickly followed.
And what happened next was the largest nuclear meltdown in the history of the world and the evacuation of 160,000 locals who lived in the area of the Fukushima power plant.
We know now that TEPCO – the owner of the Fukushima plant – had been warned years earlier about the dangers of an earthquake and a tsunami hitting the plant.
No one did anything about it then – but even if they had – do we have any reason to believe it would have been enough?

HOW RADIOACTIVE IS OUR OCEAN?
The release of radioactive contaminants from Fukushima remains an unprecedented event for the people of Japan and the Pacific Ocean. Help scientists at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution reveal the ongoing spread of radiation across the Pacific and its evolving impacts on the ocean.
