    So…our planet is to be toxic. The haunting question is why would any human allow this to happen…there is no other place to go. Perhaps the answer is other life forms want our planet. Think of the scifi movies. This is the only logical answer.

    This documentary is very good overall. It has some questionable uses of expert opinion that may decrease its credibility in the eyes of some viewers, but its value far outweighs this potential drawback.

    The documentary advocates for Tokyo’s evacuation but does not address the consequences of this action. I think that’s fine, because the point of the film is to address the consequences of NOT evacuating, among other actions governments failed to take. In doing this, however, Ebisu raises some compelling questions. These include: What would have been the most effective way to tell the truth to Tokyo residents if an evacuation was decided? What would have been the best ways to tell the truth to the Japanese public that would not have led to chaos? What would have been some key elements of the evacuation plan and treatment of those forced to leave?

    I understand these are not easy questions, and most of us are not in the place to give any specific details given our lack of intimate knowledge of Japanese culture, lifestyle, or Tokyo’s specific needs, but what are some general first steps that would lead to justice and truth?

    In addition to these questions, Ebisu creates value in his film in other ways. For example, prior to watching the documentary, I only vaguely remembered radiation in the news. I remember more about the tsunami and the damage it caused, and it’s definitely good that was covered in media. However, once that news cycle ended, concerns with radiation should have continued until they were effectively addressed.
