I am embarrassed as a Japanese citizen to list some of the most
glaring shenanigans that the government and the power company have been
acting out in public over the past year:
The media have also been following the water—in this case, the
seawater that brave firefighters and Self-Defense troops poured in
immeasurable quantities onto the burning reactors. Where did all that
water, contaminated by plutonium, disappear to? Into the Pacific Ocean
or the ground, of course. But the truth about the contamination has been
hard to find.
[Radioactive elements] cast their cloud over seafood caught off
Fukushima, in one of the world’s richest fishing zones. Who can
comprehend the apparent and hidden magnitude of radioactive
contamination that threatens never to end?
