Japan is only doing the same as the rest of the world, of course - pretending there's nothing wrong, carrying on as usual and hoping the world will sort itself out (which it will, no doubt, but maybe not with the human race still around). Fukushima just happens to be a particularly ghastly example of the sort of problems we've created for ourselves.
Meanwhile Barak Obama continues to not fulfil his promises about a green economy, Putin is such a wimp he can't take a few peaceful protests about Arctic oil drilling without throwing his toys out the cradle, the Aussies have just withdrawn from the carbon tax scheme (why they don't use solar power for everything in that climate is beyond me) and our very own Prime Minister in New Zealand continues to head towards the most environmentally destructive policies he can in the name of short term supposed boosts to the economy, or more likely just making the rich richer...
