Today on Your Call: How concerned should we be about Fukushima?

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the recent leaks from the nuclear power plant at Fukushima, Japan.  It’s been over two years since the plant suffered its original damage from the earthquake and tsunami.  Now, more than 300 tons of radioactive water has leaked from the plant into the ground and ocean.  So what do we need to know?  Could the entire Pacific Ocean be at risk?  And what can we be doing to prevent this? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
