Fukushima NHK Documentary: Decontamination: Losing the Sheltering Trees

Program examines the tragedy in coastal Japan.

Fukushima disaster

(TOKYO) - The Fukushima nuclear disaster showed us once again that nuclear reactors are fundamentally dangerous, Greenpeace explains. Not only do they cause significant damage to the environment, the health of populations and to national economies, the heavy financial cost of a meltdown is inevitably borne by the public, not by the companies that designed, built, and operated the plants.

None of the world’s 436 nuclear reactors are immune to human errors, natural disasters, or any of the many other serious incidents that could cause a disaster. Millions of people who live near nuclear reactors are at risk.

The lives of hundreds of thousands of people continue to be affected by the Fukushima nuclear disaster, especially the 160,000 who fled their homes because of radioactive contamination, and continue to live in limbo without fair, just, and timely compensation.

They have only a false hope of returning home, yet the Japanese government is eagerly pushing to restart reactors, against the will of its people, and without learning true lessons from Fukushima.

The government has started decontamination work in areas affected by the nuclear accident but the progress is slow amid mistrust and conflicts.

NHK reports from Fukushima communities in danger of collapse in the aftermath of the accident.
