Japan’s nuclear industry sacrificing 99.99 percent of its people for profits

The three-year anniversary of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster recently passed, and a prominent nuclear expert has come out in protest of the way both the Japanese government and the country’s nuclear industry continue to handle the situation. During a recent episode of the Nuclear Hotseat podcast, celebrity and lawmaker Taro Yamamoto lamented how the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) is still downplaying the threat of radiation, which he believes will end up “sacrificing” 99.99 percent of the Japanese population.

In Japan, stated Yamamoto, it is still taboo to even talk about radiation, even though its effects have been felt throughout the country and even beyond its borders. Insinuating that the country as a whole has essentially buried its head in the sand on this important issue, Yamamoto called out the nuclear industry in particular for minimizing the radioactive impact of Fukushima, which many now believe to be the worst nuclear accident in recorded history.

“Idiotic ideas — like restarting the nuclear plants — are being considered here in Japan,” stated Yamamoto during the interview. “I think it is wrong that people’s lives are being sacrificed because of money and the company profits… 99.99 percent of the people are being sacrificed.”
