Help Educate Decision Makers About Fukushima Risks!
http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/568/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=10780 Dear Mr. Secretary-General, I am extremely worried about the lack of the sense of crisis in Japan and abroad,as regards the wo
rsening situation at the Fukushima Daiichi.
The international community is required to prevent the Fukushima accident from developing into the ultimate catastrophe of the world, a possibility the collapse of the Unit 4 by a mega earthquake could turn into a reality. It could happen at any moment! Faced with this unprecedented crisis, the mobilization of human wisdom is required on th
e widest possible scale. The full assumption of responsibilities by the Japanese Government is urgently needed.
The present abnormal lack of the sense of crisis is due to the fact that inconvenient truth is not disclosed. The international community has the duty, for example, to grasp correctly the precise volume of the continuous release of radiation from Fukushima.
In this connection, the official numbers published by Tepco, 10milliom BQ/H, unchanged for the last year and half, could hardly be trusted. They remain unchanged even after the revelation by Tepco that, since the accident in 2011, 400 tons of contaminated water daily leaked into the sea. Now the Government admits that 300 tons daily [60,000 gallons] flow into the sea.
The situation is worsening. And no solution in sight !
The so called international strategy to consider that Fukushima accident did not happen, as some papers writes, is doomed to failure. This strategy is evidenced by the continued promotion of nuclear reactors worldwide, and their restarting and exporting by Japan..Even
if it succeeds to hide the head, it cannot hide the tail that is the contamination of the ocean on a planetary scale.
Conscientious citizens are now calling for the withdrawal of the invitation for Olympic games by Japan. Allow me to count on your understanding and support.Yours truly,
Former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland
