Latest news filtering it’s way through the media is of mutated butterflies, highly radioactive fish 258 times the “safe” level and now we find out about 36% of children in the Fukushima region are showing increased levels of caesium in their Thyroid gland. While being incredibly sad for the children it is also just the tip of the iceberg. As Japan wakes up to the fact that the whole country has been constantly and near permanently exposed to the ongoing affects of radiation that will last for thousands of years surely the protest will get stronger and the Politicians are now getting very edgy.
Until they cap the facility to stop the continuing release of radionuclides into the biosphere the problem will continue to be made worse as if it is not already bad enough. However the Nuclear industry is still strong enough to force the Politicians to restart the reactors that have been switched on. The battle for control of the energy supply is a long hard fight against corruption, ignorance and wholesale disregard for life on this planet.
