Postscript: This post is to suggest it is now time for each of us to get involved – and, on a personal level. You could begin by helping me keep this section of information (Fukushima) more complete – and updated. Meanwhile, I need to go back to complete my writing on how to change this movie. It will require each of us to contribute what we can toward this situation.
Because it is now a World Problem, it will now also require everyone’s immediate attention. We do not have rights, we have responsibilities – that includes our thoughts and actions. Time now to get off that couch.
