A little while ago while searching for information on Fukushima I came across a video made by a Japanese person with a Geiger counter. It was shocking because while official information could be found, it was really downplayed and they never showed the Geiger counter’s display. It was really striking to see the Geiger counter’s alarm go off in a normal outdoor area where people were going about their everyday lives in the normal citizen’s video. I thought that it would be a good project to gather some of these videos together and place them together on Google Earth.
You will find all relevant links hard-coded onto the video as well as in the information section here.
The Fukushima nuclear disaster is far from over and the true suffering has yet to begin as the true effect of the radiation on people’s health will take years to reveal itself. The authorities (the Japanese government, TEPCO, IAEA, etc.) keep downplaying the situation and mainstream media has all but forgotten about it. Many people in other countries think that it is over. That is why I think it is very important to continue reporting and analyzing the information.
I invite the viewer to follow the links and closely look at the information for yourself. I think that the true nature of the situation will be easily apparently to anyone who examines the information that is available.
