Fukushima: Privatizing the risk — Dr. Richard Wilcox via DiaNuke.org

I highly recommend that you read Dr. Richard Wilcox’s book review of “Fukushima And The Privatization Of Risk” by Majia Holmer Nadesan, a communications professor in the area of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University. I applaud Dr. Wilcox, who lives and works in Tokyo as a professor at several universities and has witnessed first-hand the blatant academic censorship of writing about the Fukushima disaster.

After giving his background and a brief overview of the human risks associated with the Fukushima radiation fallout and continual deluge of contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean, Wilcox introduces the book’s three unfolding stages:

” (1) A concise history of the nuclear weapons and energy project which exposes the fatal link between the two ventures and how Japan’s nuclear power program emerged from that context;

(2) A coherent time line of the chaotic and complex events that occurred during the March, 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster;

(3) Radiation risks from Fukushima and other sources and how they will affect human, wildlife and environmental health and integrity. ”

This article is long but well worth the read. You will learn a lot about the corruption of the nuclear industry and the biological and bioaccumulative effects of radiation on humans and the environment.
