On The Road Again...Japan Speaking Tour Series No. 1

Fairewinds’ Chief Engineer Arnie Gundersen is hitting the road yet again for his third speaking tour of Japan! It will be five years in March since the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi began and the Japanese public continues to search for the truth about nuclear risk and honest answers to their energy future as they face their current government’s push to restart Japan’s atomic reactors.

Join the Fairewinds Crew as we explore some of the key issues that will be discussed during the tour.
