Is Fukushima The Crisis Without End
Written by Contributor
Is This The Beginning Of The End? Unfortunately, every single day, over 300 tons of radioactive water enters the Pacific Ocean from the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster. The total amount of radioactive material released from Fukushima is constantly increasing. This radioactive material is steadily building up in our food chain and it is having profound impact on our eco system. It will also have a profound impact on the health of human beings across the planet. The fact is that all of this nuclear radiation will outlive us all and many are starting to realise that the Fukushima and other nuclear disasters represent a crisis without end. Some experts say that we will never be able to clean up this mess, others say "it could take up to 40 years to clean up the Fukushima disaster", but either way, in the mean time countless innocent people will develop cancer and other serious health problems as a result of exposure to these high levels of nuclear radiation. This is a nuclear disaster that is absolutely unprecedented, and it is unfortunately getting worse by the day. The situation demands the immediate mobilization of an international task force to attempt what ever mitigation is possible of this crisis. Inaction will only guarantee what appears to be an impending environmental disaster of global proportions. We can not afford a "too little too late approach". The writing is already all over the walls as evidence shows up from multiple sources of wide spread radioactive contamination from Fukushima in North America and beyond. Watch Sustainable Living Magazine for more stories on the growing impact, the extent of this crisis in the weeks to come. We will also be speaking to what each of us can do to reduce the impact of this on our lives. In the mean time listen to what David Sazuki had to say about it.

Our Oceans In Crisis - New Study
Written by Garnet McPherson
The preliminary report arises from the first ever interdisciplinary international workshop to consider the cumulative impact of all stressors affecting the ocean. Considering the latest research across all areas of marine science, the workshop examined the combined effects of pollution, acidification, ocean warming, over fishing and hypoxia (deoxygenation).
Ray Anderson Lead Business Down A Sustainable Path
Written by The Editor
Ray Anderson passed on recently and we lost a great business leader that showed us all that a greener business can be a better busness that shows improved performance on multiple bottom lines. He earned the SLM Green Hero Award for his work on sustainable busness.Known for his advanced and progressive stance on industrial ecology and sustainability Ray Anderson was described by many as the greenest CEO in North America. A pioneer and visionary, Ray has lead the way by not only transforming his successful carpet and floor covering company into one of the most sustainable corporations in existence but also by actively sharing his experience with other organizations and government. We owe Ray a debt of gratitude for setting an example of what can be done to create sustainable organisations that make sence.
