Fukushima is an important lesson and message for humanity today, the same way the Gulf oil spill of 2010 was. However, we have become desensitized to the tragedy and even unaware or deceived about its impact upon our oceans. Recently, TEPCO admited that the nuclear power plant has been leaking for the last two years. This isn't the only concern. A bigger concern is that there are 800+ power plants in the world all which can be impacted by disasters. Including if Japan (which experiences earthquakes quite frequently) should be hit by another tsunami.

Even nuclear power plants were affected by Hurricane Sandy.  Another problem is what to do with nuclear waste. A movie called "Into Internity" discusses how a place in Finland called Onkalo will become a place of storage for nuclear waste which cannot really be disposed of. It can only be stored away till over time, which is thousands of years, which it becomes less radio toxic.
