Fukushima continues to spew out radiation. The quantities seem to be rising, as do the impacts.
The site has been infiltrated by organized crime. There are horrifying signs of ecological disaster in the Pacific and human health impacts in the U.S.
But within Japan, a new State Secrets Act makes such talk punishable by up to ten years in prison.

The nuclear crisis that just won’t end has taken a dangerous turn as Japanese authorities admit radiation levels around Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant are 18 times higher than previously thought. The Fukushima nuclear crisis is becoming a case study in mismanagement as both the meltdown and continual confusion are a result of failures of communication.

Just when it seemed things might be under control at Fukushima, we find they are worse than ever. Immeasurably worse.
