Fukushima Crisis Demands Global Take-Over
|"We are now within two months of what may be humankind’s most dangerous moment since the Cuban Missile Crisis."
—Harvey Wasserman, author and activist
Fukushima’s owner, Tokyo Electric (Tepco), does not have the resources to handle 1,300 spent fuel rods now sitting in a badly damaged pool perched 100 feet in the air, with the potential to spew out more than 15,000 times as much radiation as was released at Hiroshima.
This crisis comes just as the Obama Administration is trying to provide a $8.3 billion loan to build the first new nuclear plants in the U.S. in almost 30 years. Tell President Obama to loan that $8.3 billion to a Fukushima emergency clean-up instead. Tell the United Nations to lead that effort immediately.
