For Apex Express, I talked with Hiroshi Fukurai, professor at UC Santa Cruz, for a more critical look at what’s going on in Japan.
Professor Fukurai was born in Sendai, the epicenter of last month’s monstrous 9.0 earthquake. His family still lives in the region. He talked with me about the nuclear power system in Japan, Tokyo Electric Power Company’s heavy hand over the media, and Japan’s recent passage of an internet surveillance act.
