By blanche_tang, Updated
Five years on, the people of fukushima still live in the shadow of a disaster nearby, nearly 100000 people still can't go home to pick up the pieces. people are now thinking of a way to contain the radioactive waste and let the people return to the land they once lived peacefully in.
since then, japan has enacted new rules on nuclear safety. It is now a legal requirement to avoid earthquake and tsunami risks when it once was voluntary. Even so, the japanese government is still blamed by not punishing the nuclear power plant builders and the developers, and they sacrificed the safety of the fukushima residents to develop a nuclear energy just because of its low price. Although its obvious that human lives are much worthy than economic developments and japanese government is not willing to hinder its economic development.
In addition, the accident also brought a long term effect on peoples' mental health. as the effected resident cannot return to their original place to study work, they have to conform to the new environment, and it is a hard thing for them. however, the government did nothing to help these residents to adopt to this new lifestyle.
therefore, even though this accident happened five years ago, it is still having great influence to fukushima residents and government.
