According to a statement by the group Plaintiffs Against the Fukushima Power plant, who filed a lawsuit Monday accusing Tokyo Electric Power Company and government officials of negligence in the disaster: "The Fukushima nuclear accident is the worst corporate crime in Japan's history and caused significant damage to the life, health and assets of the people of Fukushima and the rest of Japan."
Margaret Flowers and Kevin Zeese write "The story of Fukushima should be on the front pages of every newspaper. Instead, it is rarely mentioned. The problems at Fukushima are unprecedented in human experience and involve a high risk of radiation events larger than any that the global community has ever experienced. It is going to take the best engineering minds in the world to solve these problems and to diminish their global impact."
