Hiroshima A-bomb victim voices anger over handling of nuclear crisis

Atsushi Hoshino gives his views about the nuclear accident at his residence in Fukushima. (Mainichi)

FUKUSHIMA -- Atsushi Hoshino, an 83-year-old A-bomb victim from Hiroshima, harshly criticized the government's handing of the ongoing crisis at the nuclear power plant crippled by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, calling for a sweeping review of the nation's energy policy and people's ways of life.

Hoshino, a professor emeritus at Fukushima University, told the Mainichi in an interview in his home in Fukushima that he had initially thought that nuclear power generation was different in nature from the blasting of weapons of mass destruction. "But when I actually saw the nuclear reactors getting out of control, I had to change my thinking," he said. Based on his own experience as well as the suffering inflicted on many other victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, he expressed his anxiety and anger over the way the government has been responding to the nuclear disaster.
