As the magnitude of last year's earthquake and tsunami nuclear reactor damage becomes more and more clear many residents of Tokyo, home to 30 million, are fleeing for safety. Earlier this year the government disclosed plans to evacuate the entire city and to relocate the capital of Japan. Many fear that large portions of Northern Japan will be off limits for decades. Huge contamination of the ocean water and atmosphere makes the Fukushima incident a global issue that requires the nations of the Earth to unite in helping Japan prevent a nuclear holocaust. Of course to do that they would have to abandon on going plans for global thermonuclear war with consequences far worse than Fukushima.
