“We must never forget this catastrophe …We must continue to counter the efforts of the Japanese Government, TEPCO, academics and official bodies to minimise its effects and to ignore the past.” Caroline Lucas MP re Fukushima, 19 March 2019

REMEMBER FUKUSHIMA

Version 2 L to R: Asami Yokota, Fukushima resident mother; Kaori (interpreting); Akiko Morimatsu, Fukushima evacuee mother; Caroline Lucas MP, Green Party, Host and Chair; Dr Ian Fairlie, independant consultant on radioactivity in the environment.

Caroline Lucas MP, host and chair of the Remember Fukushima Parliamentary public meeting on 19 March 2019, opened the meeting with the following speech:

“Eight years ago on March 11 2011, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was triggered in Fukushima Prefecture about 150 miles north of Tokyo. Over the ensuing weeks, four explosions and three nuclear meltdowns occurred, over 160,000 people were evacuated and radioactive emissions were scattered over large tracts of Japan.

In 2012, an Investigative Panel of theJapanese National Diet (ie Parliament) concluded that the Fukushima disaster was “… profoundly man-made and was caused by a disregard of the risks of earthquakes by an industry determined to preserve the illusion that nuclear power was absolutely…

  1. Dr. Caldicott talks about Kate Browns book. Kate Brown has a powerful, ojective analysis and examination of Chernobyl.

    Before expanding nuclear power to combat climate change, we need answers to the global health effects of radioactivity

    Chernobyl’s disastrous cover-up is a warning for the next nuclear age
    Kate Brown

    Scientists talk about the annihilation of the microbial environment, that does the break down of dead flora and fauna in the forest surrounding pripyat. Leaves that are on the ground do not decay because there are no microbes to break them down.

    Geez i wonder if the fungus is thriving because all of its mirobial competition has been wiped out by radionuclides

    As Dr Brown and Dr Caldicott point out, that sellafield was worse than Chernobyl. They have detonated 2000 bombs on us too. There are millions of tons of radionuclide waste in the environment that did not exist before.
    Now there is fukushima and donald trump.
    If we do not do something soon it will be an excruciating extinction event for life on earth from the most mutagenic, teratogenic, toxic, carcinogenic, substances in the world.
