Ex-SKF ran a story this morning of some tweets that came across twitter yesterday. A group of kids from Fukushima were preparing to return home from summer camp in Shizuoka. When asked where they wanted to stop on the way back to buy souvenirs, the children asked to stop somewhere they could buy safe local produce to take home to their family. Others were saving plastic bottles to bring home safe water.
The safety systems are completely failing if by now people have no assurance of safe food and water. This is also a completely unacceptable level of stress to be putting children under where their concern at the end of summer camp is their families safety.
The “extend and pretend” policy seems to still be in place. There seems to be no plan in place to assure safe drinking water and the food system is not trusted and for good reason. Individual citizens have been acting creatively in the absence of action by the central government. People have determined what foods may be safer by location and production time, have begun setting up testing labs and are taking their own radiation readings. This is a huge task made even harder by the purposeful inaction by the government.
