Kashiwazaki was hit by an earthquake of 6.8 magnitude.

Kashiwazaki is MESS.

Kashiwazaki. How big is the threat? Is it going to affect the people long after the obvious declarations of no-harm done? Has the great debate begun again? Is there anything called a safe nuclear reactor? Should they exist even for the general benefit of large numbers of the human population? Is it the fuel of the future? Be better prepared to live with collateral damage. Make it a part and parcel of normal existence and you will have less of grief.

But imagine the harm to the same country that has suffered the worst historically. What should Japan do? What does the nation’s conscience say when it comes to all thing nuclear? Is nuclear all that important?

Are the authorities hiding information that should be released to the general public. Should outside regulators go and assess independently the damage caused to the site and reactors. Tepco president has said that it is ‘MESS’. So what is the extent of this mess? How to contain this mess? And more importantly can we start talking about it so that it never happens again.
