NHK’s Tomorrow (2013): The accident that occurred at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant of Tokyo Electric Power Company, (or TEPCO) caused the largest-ever amount of radioactive pollution. That’s why renewable energy is now attracting more attention. Since the accident, the momentum towards de-nuclearization has risen to unprecedented heights.
Satoshi Nakano, Onahama Fisheries Cooperatives in Fukushima: “In fact, the nuclear plant has had a significant impact on animals and plants. Yes, really. I believe mankind should feel apologetic because we did something terrible. So it would be better to use energy that would have the least impact on other living things. That type of energy would be the most ideal for us in the future.”
KDVS 90.3FM (University California Davis), June 19, 2014 — Dr. Kirsten Sanford, research scientist, host of This Week in Science (at 4:30 in): Fukushima, we all remember what happened in Japan… They’re still melting down… there’s melting happening in the cores… People are trying to figure out still how they can get in to see what’s happening there… It’s just been difficult to get in there… We know the reactor cores melted and the materials moved.
