We’ve noticed that JRT readers have an intense interest in things Fukushima. By “Fukushima,” we mean the March 2011 nuclear accident, and Japan’s ever-broadening concerns over radiation, health and safety — but also the nationwide debate the accident sparked on energy: where to get it, how much is needed, who should provide it and what kind.
To better serve that obsession, we’re channeling our coverage into a new JRT feature called “Fukushima Watch.” You’ll find there news, insights and analysis on things nuclear, radiation and energy-related in Japan
Fukushima Watch will be an outlet for geeky and juicy details lurking in JRT’s notebooks, culled from first-hand conversations with regulators, utilities and experts, as we report on the big issues of the day.
