In this silence, in the stillness was something that I’ve only ever heard at Chernobyl.
I have a feeling that people just don’t really understand, they’re not grasping the whole scope of the potentiality.
I think with the earthquake and tsunami, yeah it was a catastrophe, but it was an engineering catastrophe, we can fix this.
But you can’t fix what’s happening in Fukushima.
