Euronews, Sept. 5, 2013: Two years after the accident instead of progress being made the news gets worse almost by the day, with many now saying the disaster has spun out of control, and that its full extent has been hidden from the public.
CNBC, Sept. 2, 2013 (h/t Anonymous tip) – Tilman Ruff, Associate Professor at the University of Melbourne: I think what’s really needed to deal with this unprecedented, very difficult situation, is really an international effort to bring together the best resources and expertise and equipment, with the experience of other nuclear accidents, with the experience of radioactively contaminated site cleanup, to mobilize the global effort. Because this is a global problem, not just a Japanese problem. […] [Prime Minister Shinzo Abe] may need to review some policy decisions and approaches very sharply because […] treating Fukushima largely with denial and cover-up is clearly not working and doesn’t deal really with a crisis situation.
