Revised and expanded edition. Nuclear Disasters and Lessons Learned... A Mother's Response Facts are facts. There have been three nuclear power disasters to date: Three Mile Island in 1979, Chernobyl in 1986, and now Fukushima Daiichi in 2011... and there are many more smaller nuclear accidents and near misses every year. Do we wait for another catastrophic event, or do we act now? Nuclear fallout is a harmful and mysterious tragedy that we can't see, taste, hear, smell or feel. Rather than recoil in fear from Fukushima Daiichi it really only serves to empower us into further action.


Ms. Roberson's book is a mother's account of dealing with radioactive fallout from the Fukushima Daiichi disaster , the worst in world history. She speaks to the urgent need for food monitoring, conservation and renewable energy, as radiation from nuclear power is now migrating into our homes and kitchens.
