A professor emeritus sent me a online article from Esquire about Alaskan waters being polluted from Japan’s nuclear failures. Though written more like an editorial than newsfeed, it highlights the pressure of Japanese officials to contain contaminated water which has possibly caused shoddy work providing leaks into the ocean currents which feed Alaskan waters. The article indicates that Alaskan wild and sea life may be exposed to nuclear contamination comparable to what we received during the cold war from nuclear testing. Even if we don’t have a nuclear plant/energy in Delta Junction any more or one put in Galena, we may still be affected by the fall out from other Pacific Rim nations which use it.
