Fukushima – five years after the explosion

Five years ago, the shore of Japan was hit by a huge earthquake and then two tsunami waves. The nuclear power plant Fukushima Daiichi didn’t survive and exploded, killing dozens of people immediately, and polluting the area for many decades to come. Consequently, in the five years since the explosion, Japan has considered moving into clean energy. Celine Narinli spoke to Richard Broinowski, president of Australian Institute of International Affairs NSW about the disaster and the possibilities for the future of safe and sustainable energies in Japan.
