Update on Fukushima

Dahr Jamail
Dahr Jamail has an amazing article at Al Jazeera today. It's about the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. There's no sense in me excerpting it; you've got to read this one in full. Things are much, much worse than we've been told.

I think it's a safe bet that news from Fukushima is purposely being excluded from US news broadcasts. Jamail suggests as much and I thank him for saying this in print. Why do you think the world's greatest nuclear disaster isn't being covered by the American news media? The answer is obvious: the nuclear power brokers in this country spoke -- and the media scurried to do their bidding. Poof. No Fukushima in the American news. (This should scare you, by the way.)

But at least we have the internet, for now. We can still access independent news sources. So get on over to Al Jazeera and read the story. And if you're still in favor of nuclear power after reading it, something is probably wrong with you.

Thank you for this post Keith. I wish I had your way with words, very well put. Hopefully we can spark some interest in this.

Thanks. The strangest thing is that no one is noticing the lack of coverage. It's like there's a mental black-out too. Weird.
