Flawed Nuclear Power Technology Presents a Dire Threat to Human Health in Japan, World
Interview with Kevin Kamps, a nuclear waste specialist with Beyond Nuclear, conducted by Melinda Tuhus
The disasters that have befallen Japan continue to multiply. Thousands are already confirmed dead, with the toll expected to exceed 10,000 from both the 9.0 magnitude earthquake and the tsunami it triggered, which struck the island nation on March 11. Add to these already cataclysmic conditions the failures of the cooling systems, hydrogen explosions, fires and ultimately the possible breach of containment structures at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in the northern part of the country, where three reactors were operating at the time.
