Japan’s Nuclear Exclusion Zone Shows Few Signs of Life:

What’s most striking about Japan’s nuclear exclusion zone, is there are no people, few cars, no sign of life, aside from the occasional livestock wandering empty roads. While workers of the Fukushima plant are bused in daily, the government has maintained a 12-mile no-go zone around the area for everyone else.


The government has said it will take at least 30 years to decommission the crippled reactors. This nuclear wasteland may not be livable for decades.

    Is there any way that other countries could help out Japan and speed up this process? I know that they've received a lot of help from countries all over the world already, but is there anything more we could do? What happened in Japan could happen to any of us with nuclear plants near fissures. If we can figure out how to decommission the reactors faster, it may help prepare the rest of the the world, including Japan, for the future.
