Fukushima: On the Frontline with Joel Lambert
5 years after the Fukushima nuclear disaster in March 11, 2011, former Navy SEAL Joel Lambert visits Fukushima to provide frontline reports on the efforts of its people.
He meets engineers and workers at the forefront of the decommissioning challenges and learns about decontamination, safety measures on reactors, disposing of radioactive waste, and technological innovation in purification and storage of contaminated water. Joel also goes inside the facility to report on the current status of the nuclear power station, where traces of the accident still remain, and interviews and mixes with the local people waiting to return to their hometown. How can we prepare ourselves for possible future disasters using the experiences and knowledge we have gained in Fukushima?
