Good day. Your treatment of the five-year anniversary of the most dangerous unresolved industrial incident in recorded history is flat and one dimensional. Is this what you intended to write or what the editors permitted?
* tests show growing numbers of children in Fukushima and surroundings with thyroid nodules and cancer;
* flooding the site with water has caused foundation failures of reactor buildings;
* the corium are lost. Elvis has left the building. TEPCO's managers say they don't know how to find or recover them; to claim the site is stable is laughable;
* organized crime procures unskilled workers, sub-standard monitoring of dose exposure, poor record keeping;
* Tokyo passed a national secrets act to limit reporting of the crisis; the threat of jail keeps journalists sitting on stories documenting ongoing fission events, venting to the sea and atmosphere;
* downwind and downstream of Fukushima [Alaska and the coast of North America and South America] unusual mortality events have been announced by the USFW; seals, whales, otters, walrus, and polar bears: dead, diseased or strange behavior; steep declines in caribou herd sizes.
You should know that approximately 30 whales died in the waters off Kodiak Island in the summer of 2015. Hundreds of thousands of sea birds [Cassin's auklets, common murres] have similarly died. A recent beach walk in Whittier, Alaska [a few miles east of Anchorage] documented 8,000 dead murres per mile. Most scientists say they are stumped, never seen anything like it. Some are saying the food chain is broken but have no funds to investigate.
All sea stars, from Homer, Alaska to Baja, Mexico have been extirpated. Video shows them 'melting'. Intertidal zones in coastal British Columbia appear to be sterilized of life.
The federal government has done/is doing a lousy job of guiding its major Asian ally toward a resolution of the crisis. Hillary's emails about Fukushima are likely to figure prominently in the FBI investigation. She was free-lancing for the Wall Streeters while employed as SoS. Coverups always end badly. It began five years ago as a 'Keystone Cops' script as detailed in FOIA docs of the NRC crisis team's email and phone calls. The unfolding catastrophe was out of everyone's league and remains so today. Your report fails to provide readers with a factual account of the ongoing crisis. It reminds me of watching a cat do its business.
If you care to catch up with the real world, I recommend:
