Helen Caldicott: The meaning of Fukushima

From New York City: a dose of the awful truth from the long-term nuclear guardian, Dr. Helen Caldicott. In her time to speak on the second anniversary of the Fukushima Dai-ichi triple melt-down in Japan - Helen lays it out.

Due to increased radiation, toxic chemicals and climate change, life on earth is in the Intensive Care Unit.

Caldicott says it's up to us - we are all physicians for the Earth now. It's a powerful speech from a famous force for sanity.

Recorded at the symposium "The Medical and Ecological Consequences of the Fukushima Nuclear Accident" by the Helen Caldicott Foundation and Physicians for Nuclear Responsibility. Edited for radio by Alex Smith of Radio Ecoshock. 31 minutes.
