Vice on HBO, Season 2 Episode 10, May 24, 2014:

At 2:45 in

  • Hiroshi Kawauchi, former Japanese house representative: The havoc Fukushima has wrought is not acknowledged by the government. [Fukushima Daiichi] emitted airborne radioactive cesium levels that exceed the Hiroshima bomb by 168 times. But we’re always told everything is OK.
  • Vikram Ghandi, Vice: [We were] wondering why radiation levels 168 times worse than Hiroshima could ever be perceived as OK.

At 11:00 in

  • Anonymous Tepco Employee: There are many more problems that we have here [other than contaminated water]. The equipment that we brought 3 years ago, like pipes, hoses, the buildings themselves, all of these have started to break down. Even the cooling system ceasing to function is a possibility.

At 13:00 in

  • Ghandi: The future of Japan begins to look even more bleak.
  • Kawauchi: It will become harder to access the truth [because of the new state secrets act].
  • Ghandi: The government trying to silence people cannot change the dark reality of radiation that may only rear its head in generations to come.
  • Kawauchi: If we continue, not only Japan, but also Earth, is in peril.
