Minister of Foreign Affairs Genba: “Wearing Masks Is Baseless Rumor”

In the Budget Committee in the Upper House of the Diet in November last year, Foreign Minister Koichiro Genba said “There is a baseless rumor created by the foreign media by showing people wearing masks”.

Not surprising from the minister, who, as the minister in charge of national strategy in March 2011, said “Let’s all cheer for TEPCO!” after 3 reactors blew up in one way or another, and radioactive plumes swept through parts of Tohoku and much of Kanto, as TEPCO and the national government were implementing the totally unnecessary “blackout” to scare the nation into continuing to accept nuclear power generation even after the Fukushima disaster.

Not surprisingly, he is a politician elected from Fukushima Prefecture.

Fukushima Meltdown: The World’s First Earthquake-Tsunami-Nuclear Disaster

Takashi Hirose wrote this book in a heat of passion mixed with terrible sadness in the weeks following the Fukushima nuclear disaster. But he is far from a newcomer to this field; he has been writing books and articles warning of the terrible dangers of nuclear power since the early 1980s. In this book, which was a best seller in Japan, he not only describes the comic-if-not-so-tragic series of fumbling errors that lead to the meltdown at Fukushima, but also makes clear the absurdity of putting nuclear power plants anywhere on the earthquake and volcano prone Japanese archipelago – and by extension, anywhere in the world. This is the first translation into English of any book by this authoritative critic of nuclear power.

    I remember when I saw “Blind” as the worst case scenario and now it looks like the hopeful one. We are on the clock with this nuclear fallout situation getting worse by the day. The time to moan is over, the time to act is now.

    I live in Fukushima City and all I hear from the government are positive things, and that it’s basically not dangerous here. No one knows what to believe or who is telling the truth. There needs to be a LARGE delegation of nuclear experts come here, with NO connection to ANY government which uses nuclear power, nor any company in any way, shape, or form associated with nuclear anything. I have a son here, and if he’s being exposed, I want to know so that I can take the appropriate steps.
