After more than 2 years, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant is neither contained nor stable. The reactors are in meltdown, a massive amount of nuclear waste sits on top of a badly damaged building, and radioactive water constantly leaks into the ocean whose currents carry it to the West Coast of the United States.
A second earthquake or explosion could release a catastrophic amount of radiation that would travel far beyond Japan’s borders into North America. Children, including the unborn, are especially vulnerable to radiation. Already the health of newborns has been shown to be in jeopardy.
Japan cannot fix Fukushima alone.
We therefore call on President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry to lead the world’s nations in offering technical and financial assistance to Japan to FIX FUKUSHIMA NOW, and save humanity from further nuclear disaster.
