|It will be hard to scrub the memories of the 100,000 plus Japanese nuclear evacuees, |
some of whom will never be able to return to their home.
Today is the anniversary of the ongoing nuclear tragedy in Japan, although you could never tell by looking at mainstream media sources. I read lots of mentions of the earthquake and resulting tsunami, which were both devastating. But they really weren't the worst part.
I saw nothing about the anniversary of three reactors that had total meltdowns hours after the accident, and have now left their containment vessels to bubble and spew radiation unchecked for the next 100 years or more.
I saw nothing about a contaminated Pacific Ocean, or about fallout-affected pregnant women in Washington state giving birth to babies with no brains. I saw nothing about Japan's 100,000 plus evacuees that are still in temporary housing.
Since the world's worst nuclear accident started on 3/11 things at the stricken Fukushima power plant are as bad as they have ever been. But a collective memory fade is occurring in the absence of media coverage, aided by half truths, outright lies, denial and ignorance.
No plan? No solution? No worries! As a matter of fact, let's build more of these death traps. According to the World Nuclear Association, over 60 new nuclear power plants are being constructed in 13 countries.
The Fukushima situation is being handled as if straight from Orwell's novel 1984 and the Ministry of Truth.
War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength
Nuclear Power is Green, Cheap, and Safe
Who needs a memory hole when no one is paying attention?
