Paul Gunter director of the reactor oversight project at Beyond Nuclear: We’re in a very grave situation right now as the Japanese government has declared this is a new radiation emergency coming out of a worsening situation at Fukushima Daiichi [...]
The meetings that are going on right now between industry and government are behind closed doors. The Japanese people are asking for more transparency to get a better understanding of just how out of control this whole situation is.
And that’s going to be true for New Zealand, for Taiwan, for Korea, for China, for all the immediate Pacific nations.
But ultimately it raises concerns for radioactive contamination in the ocean currents in the Pacific.
