"What started as a natural disaster, turned into one of the worst industrial accidents in human history and a reminder that humanity must urgently turn its efforts towards safe, clean renewables." — Junichi Sato, Executive Director of Greenpeace Japan.
"Those responsible, in particular TEPCO and the Japanese government, must be held to account for this manmade disaster and prioritise public safety and the environment as they struggle to deal with the ongoing crisis at the plant and in Fukushima prefecture. Today's shutdown of the Takahama unit 3 reactor following a historic ruling by a court on 9 March is a signal that nuclear power has no future in Japan," —Shaun Burnie, senior nuclear specialist with Greenpeace Germany.
" ... The Fukushima disaster is the single largest release of radioactivity into the ocean and one of only two Level 7 nuclear disasters in world history - the other being Chernobyl. Evidence of the effects of radiation on the natural environment are already becoming apparent, ranging from DNA-damaged wildlife, to mutations in trees."
