Lunchbox/Soapbox: Richard Broinowski: Fallout from Fukushima
Following the tsunami and ensuing nuclear disaster at Fukushima last year, former diplomat and ambassador Richard Broinowski travelled to the irradiated zone, to look at all aspects of nuclear power in Japan.
Today, he examines the human side of the tsunami and its aftermath, as well as the political and economic realities behind Japanese nuclear power. What is Australia’s role as Japan’s greatest supplier of uranium, and how have the events at Fukushima impacted on other countries’ nuclear aspirations?
