I am transmitting you Mr. Akio Matsumura’s article.
As a member of the International Advisory Council for the Nuclear Emergency Action Alliance,
I am cooperating with him.
Dr.Norio Iriguchi,Honorary Professor of Kumamoto University,in his Face book site,introduces the
suggestion of Dr.Chris Busby. Scientific Secretary, European Committee on Radiation Risk, to construct
a sarcophagus that could cost 100 trillion yen.His point of view as to the dangers of the debris capable
of reaching the critical state is frightening.We are led to wonder why there is no attempt to materialize
a international project,as was the case with the Chernobyl accident,to construct a sarcophagus to stop
the ongoing radioactive contamination in all directions.
Please allow me to count on your understanding and support.
With warmest regars,
Former Ambassador to Switzerland

Dear International Advisory Council Members:
I am pleased to inform you that my most recent article, The Potential Catastrophe of Reactor 2 at Fukushima Daiichii, which featured comments from Dr. Shuzo Takemoto, has been viewed over 3,500 times in the past two day in English and Japanese. An excerpted version is currently the top article on ENENews, an energy news website. Besides U.S. and Japanese visitors, readers have logged on in the triple digits from Australia, the UK, and Canada, and in double-digits from France, Germany, Finland, the Netherlands, India, Thailand, South Korea, Brazil, and New Zealand. ” in the first paragraph.
It is clear there is a large appetite for news, context, and independent analysis on Fukushima. Our mission as the advisory council for the Nuclear Emergency Action Alliance is to continue to provide such analysis in a timely fashion from our many expert perspectives.
I am encouraged by even this relatively small readership and am working to leverage this dispiriting news into a larger call for action.
