Beijing's 3-decades of mishandling nuclear waste is troubling

When Japan's Fukushima nuclear power plant discharged nuclear wastewater into the sea, China launched a publicity campaign denouncing Japan. Chinese public reacted, and demand for portable nuclear radiation detectors soared. With the device in hand, the Chinese started to test everything, and what they found was troubling.

The answer is troubling.


1. China's $6 billion nuclear waste contract
2. An investigation in Tibet
3. 3 decades without a nuclear waste disposal facility
4. "Building houses without toilets"
5. The dirty bomb claim
