Edwin Lyman talked about his book, Fukushima, in which he looks at what happened at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in March 2011 and the damage it caused around the world. In his book, the author argues that Fukushima revealed the dangers that still accompany nuclear power and exposed the lack of worst-case scenario planning by the Japanese government.
