The Fukushima Daiichi Disaster



On March 11, 2011, the powerful Tōhoku earthquake hit Honshu, the main island of Japan. Immediately following the earthquake, the reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant automatically shut down. However, this unusually strong earthquake triggered a subsequent tsunami which disabled the emergency generators that were in place to cool the reactors. With the generators and cooling pumps offline, the facility suffered explosions and nuclear meltdowns. The Fukushima Daiichi disaster is one of the worst nuclear disasters in history.

Eight years later, we don't hear too much about Fukushima anymore. The mainstream media is trying to convince us that the radiation levels are starting to drop and there's absolutely nothing to worry about. But is that really true?
