Gundersen argues that the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi accident in Japan began in 1965, inside the US, with General Electric and the engineers who designed the site plan and architecture for the Mark I reactor at Fukushima. He also points the finger at the US Atomic Energy Commission that permitted a flawed design to be licensed and built.
Gundersen holds an MA in nuclear engineering and once worked for the nuclear industry. He was an expert witness on the Three Mile Island partial melt-down, and more recently on the serious safety risks at the Vermont Yankee and California's San Onofre reactors. He and his website at Fairewinds Energy Education <www.fairewinds.org/> became well known and respected after the Fukushima accident for his often weekly updated reports.
Pacifica Radio did the recording
Gundersen was recorded by Pacifica Radio at the Fukushima Symposium in New York City on March 11, 2013. On the second anniversary of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, scientists and researchers met in NY City to cover the vast field of nuclear construction and safety, and the range of radioactive isotopes that continue to be emitted at Fukushima. They presented studies on the impact of radiation on human health, our food, on plants and marine life. And they explained the mechanisms by which radiation will continue to disperse, literally across the world while at the same time bio-accumulating in plants, living beings and soils. The two day event was organized by The Helen Caldicott Foundation and cosponsored by Physicians for Social Responsibility.
