Reliable News about the Fukushima disaster

Reliable sources of information regarding what is going on at Fukushima have been difficult for me to find. I am appalled at the lack of focused attention this situation is receiving in the lamestream media.  TEPCO seems more interested in protecting itself than the Japanese people or the rest of the world.  Their official information may be supplying bits and pieces of the truth to the public, but  I don’t trust their analysis  of those facts.

Informational Websites

Fairewinds Associates

I have found the website of Fairewinds Associates, whose tagline claims it’s focus is  “Analysis and solutions to complex engineering, environmental, energy, and legal issues” to be filled with reasonable and expert analysis of the disaster. There are many videos of nuclear expert and chief engineer, Arnie Gunderson, and others discussing the crisis and it’s implications.

The newest video is here from May 13th: Fukushima – One Step Forward and Four Steps Back as Each Unit Challenged by New Problems
