Japan: Fukushima’s future

Source(s):  Project Syndicate

"Japan’s nuclear industry, regulators, and government have a responsibility to explain clearly why science and technology could not minimize the risk and consequences of such an accident in a geologically vulnerable country like Japan; why unreasonably costly cleanup is being carried out in areas of low contamination, where negligible impact on public health is anticipated; and why no well-defined and operational waste-management system has been established. The lessons learned may help not only to reduce the risk of future accidents, but also to facilitate recovery in areas around the world that have been contaminated by radioactive or other toxic substances," write Shinichi Nakayama, a researcher in radioactive waste management at the Japan Atomic Energy Agency and Ian McKinley, a partner at MCM Consulting in their opinion piece that was published in Project Syndicate.
