Guardian environmental reporter Suzanne Goldenberg discusses a $1 billion lawsuit filed by sailors in the U.S. Navy that accuses the Japanese electric company Tepco of failing to avoid the Fukushima nuclear accident and of lying about radiation levels that have caused health problems for them and their families stationed in Japan. She’s written about the lawsuit in The Guardian, and the story later appeared in Mother Jones as part of their partnership with Climate Desk.
