Pictures from Fukushima Daichi Power Plant

I just receive these pictures from a colleague:  http://cryptome.org/eyeball/daiichi-111211/daiichi-111211.htm

They give an immediate overview of the disaster of Fukushima.  They are part of a large collection of images and PDFs at http://cryptome.org/nppw-series.htm

Fukushima is so hard on my heart.  It just feels impossible.

In the nineties I spent six years on the Governor’s Nuclear Waste Advisory Board in Washington State, home of Hanford Nuclear Reservation.  At one point we were spending $4-5 Million a day planning clean-up.  At the end of the day, what’s clear is that we really don’t know what to do with the nuclear waste we’ve created.  I recall one project where millions of dollars had been spent trying to figure out how to alert people in 10,000 years who might discover buried waste.

I look forward to finding ways of supporting the people of Fukushima as they rebuild their lives and their communities.  And I send them so much prayer and energy and support.
