Angry Parents…

This New York Times article by Hiroko Tabuchi describes the anguish of the parents of Fukushima City, whose children are going to contaminated schools. As I have said before, it is hard to see a happy ending to this story. The best protection from radiation is shielding and distance. I would never let my children be exposed to these radiation levels, said an advisor to Prime Minister Kan. I agree. This is not a healthy environment for children. Delays in moving them will only add to the uncertainty and suffering. Someone needs to speak out and let people know this is not a situation that can be normalized. There is risk that will not go away for some time.
