March 15, 2012: Lessons from Fukushima: Dr. Helen Caldicott and Local Filmmaker Speak Out
As the world remembers Fukushima, Nobel Prize nominee Dr. Helen Caldicott - in Seattle this week for the event, “Lessons from Fukushima for the Northwest” - reminds the nation that nuclear fall out isn’t just for a year. Radiation is a silent killer, says Caldicott, the repercussions continue for hundreds of years. This week Green Acre Radio catches up with Caldicott and a local documentary filmmaker about his film, Surviving Japan.
