Ill effects of disasters in Japan reach America

Ill effects of the catastrophic earthquake'-tsunami-nuclear disaster in Japan early last year are still being encountered in the USA': fish with radiation is found off California and debris piles up on Alaska's shore. It is not immediately clear if or how other nearby areas are impacted. While the heartbreaking event in Japan in 2011 has clearly shown the highly admirable social discipline of the people in that country, 'it has also revealed some pretty questionable responses of the government. There is now a deep division in the Japanese society over whether to restart the nuclear power plants 'that have already been switched off.
