” More than 100,000 former residents of Fukushima, Japan remain displaced more than three years after a massive earthquake and tsunami caused a meltdown at Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.
Today, California Senator Barbara Boxer raised concerns the Nuclear Regulatory Commission wasn’t doing enough to protect the U.S. from a similar disaster.
In Japan, the government is forging ahead with plans to decontaminate and reopen an area currently deemed a “no-go zone.” But former residents have mixed feelings about returning, writes Yuri Kageyama, an Associated Press reporter in the Tokyo bureau.
KQED’s Mina Kim talks with Kageyama, who was in the Bay Area last week to advise a group of San Francisco State University journalism students who will be traveling to Fukushima. ”
