Fukushima, US Senator Comes Home With Disturbing Report

27 Apr

One must wonder why the media isn’t covering such a very serious, imminent threat.   Oregon Senator Ron Wyden, a senior member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources,  recently paid Japan a visit to inspect Fukushima and did not come back with a good report.  In a letter to Japanese Ambassador Ichiro Fujisaki, Senator Wyden said:

“The scope of damage to the plants and to the surrounding area was far beyond what I expected and the scope of the challenges to the utility owner, the government of Japan, and to the people of the region are daunting,” Wyden wrote in the letter. “The precarious status of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear units and the risk presented by the enormous inventory of radioactive materials and spent fuel in the event of further earthquake threats should be of concern to all and a focus of greater international support and assistance.”

I think we might want to pay more attention to this and start taking it more seriously.
