1100 square kilometers lost

Red zone represents contamination from 3 million to 30 million Bq / m2

This is the land surrounding Fukushima.  The section in red is above the agricultural restrictions for Chernobyl.  It represents over 1100 square kilometers (smaller than Chernobyl).

Germany will likely remain shuttered 8 older reactors.  And is planning full phase out by 2020.

Japan has canceled plans to build 14 additional reactors by 2030.  Halting all new construction in that country.

Both countries are committed to not increasing their carbon footprint as the result of phasing out reactors, thru use of efficiency and real renewables.
