This book makes the jump from 5 stars (generally I don’t bother to review a book if it is not a four or five star read) to 6 stars — my top ten percent — because of the combination of Questions Asked, glorious color graphics, and the total holistic nature of the book — this is easily a PhD thesis in holistic analytics, true cost economics, and open source everything engineering. Indeed, this book could be used as a first-year reference across any humanities and science domain, they would be the better for it.
Review: Crisis without End: The Medical and Ecological Consequences of the Fukushima Nuclear Catastrophe
Helen Caldicott et al.
4.0 out of 5 stars Vital Detailed Truth, Lacks Compelling Visualization, July 9, 2015
This book stems from a conference and is a very nicely presented double-spaced precis of the world-class contributions from the conference.
HELEN CALDICOTT QUOTE (3): The Fukushima disaster is not over and will not end for many millenia. The radioactive fallout, which has covered vast swaths of Japan, will remain toxic for hundreds of thousands of years.”
NAOTO KAN QUOTE (19): Considering the risk of losing half our land and evacuating half our population, my conclusion is that not having nuclear power plants is the safest energy policy.
