Is Nuclear-Energy still safe?!When interviewed by TIME magazine, Yujiro Taniyama said Japan has been complacent after the bubble economy collapsed in the early 90s. It needs to be shaken up. The author challenges not only the Japanese Establishment, but also exposes the suspects whose mistakes led to the catastrophic meltdown of nuclear reactors 1,2,3 & 4 at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.Yujiro Taniyama has spoken to the victims whose lives have been shattered by the blunders of TEPCO, the residents near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

The destruction and suffering of the people lead Yujiro Taniyama to investigate such issues as whether the nuclear crisis could have been avoided and did the Japanese government and TEPCO try to cover-up the full effects of the hydrogen gas explosions and the subsequent leak of radioactive material.The revelations in this book are likely to frighten the nuclear power industry around the world today.
