Unbelievable. I have been trying to share the scope of this disaster with friends for months – and no one would listen or wanted to hear it. The responses ranged from “what can I do about it?” to “if it were really that bad, don’t you think our government would have said something?”. All I want to say – I will say in the bullets below.
- A major corporation does not want to be held accountable and publishes updates that include the phrases “may have leaked” rather than stating “have leaked”.
- Governments have lifted acceptable limits of radiation in food levels, knowing that in reality, the food is toxic.
- While managing a disaster like this is new territory, there is no excuse for not publishing precautionary measures to the public for cleaning food, filtering drinking water or dealing with radiation levels in precipitation or snow.
- Finally, as individual citizens we are held to the highest standards of accountability when it comes to laws, rules, regulations and standards. However, the voices of those accountable to contain and communicate about this disaster have been mute. I am speechless.
The damage caused by the earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011 was devastating – and beyond what many persons could cope with.
However, in the aftermath, most inhabitants of the earth were unable to make any choices or take any precautionary measures for themselves – their families or their children – due to the fact that much of the truth has been withheld.
I hope that people will read this. Not to panic, but to be informed and aware. I hope people care enough about our earth and each other to learn, share, live and love (and even find happiness) in this ever changing – and challenging world.
