Fukushima and the global environment

Dear Friends,

I am sending you an alarming information about the radioactive contamination of the Pacific Ocean.


Here is an excerpt.
“In 2014, radiation on California beaches increased by 500 percent. In response, government officials said that the radiation was coming from a mysterious “unknown” source and was nothing to worry about.
However, Fukushima is having a bigger impact than just the West coast of North America. Scientists are now saying that the Pacific Ocean is already radioactive and is currently at least 5-10 times more radioactive than when the US government dropped numerous nuclear bombs in the Pacific during and after World War II. If we don’t start talking about Fukushima soon, we could all be in for a very unpleasant surprise.”

This information convinces us once again that the most urgent task for Japan is to consecrate maximum efforts to bring Fukushima under control.Fukushima cannot be brought under control by Japan alone.I continue to send messages to some world top leaders with a view to convincing them that Fukushima is a global environment issue.

The construction of a sarcophagus is urgently needed. An underground wall to stop the flow of undergroud water should be built as soon as possible at the site to prevent contaminated water from reaching the sea.The enormous spending of the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020
should be diverted to these crucial undertakings.

The advice of Fomer Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama to abandon theToyosu fish market and decide on the honorable retreat from the Tokyo Plympic 2020 is proving wise and realistic. Its supporters are definitely increasing.It gives top priority to life,and not to economy.

Please allow me to count on your understanding and support.

With warmest regards,
Mitsuhei Murata
Former Ambassador to Switzerland
