The US news has been really silent on the Fukushima situation for weeks now. But the situation there is still very serious. I have been doing my own looking into things since the press has stopped its reporting.
For anyone interested, Dr. Helen Caldicott (see her Facebook page) and Arnie Gundersen (nuclear engineer--has a site called "Fairewinds") are both good sources of information about this ongoing crisis. Also, RT Moscow news is still reporting on things and has some good interviews on YouTube.
UC Berkeley in CA has a great website with monitoring info (air, water, milk, some foods). They also host an informative forum discussion. Really great resource for those on the West Coast! http://www.nuc.berkeley.edu/UCBAirSampling
I personally have been signing a lot of online petitions to eliminate nuclear power. It is outdated, very expensive to build, dangerous, and hardly clean or green. We mothers need to put an end to this by voicing our dissent, for the health and safety of our children. I just wrote my first letter (email) to a public official--Pres. Obama. If we are complicit and not talking about this issue as a society, then we are just setting ourselves up for this to happen again.
Like Einstein said, "Nuclear power is one hell of a way to boil water!"
If anyone else has links to information, please feel free to share.
