The article presents insights on the impact of the Fukushima reactor crisis on Japan. The author mentions the fire and radiation leaks caused by an earthquake in 2007. He says that the public's fear has deepened with a series of fires inside the plant. According to utilities industry analyst Benjamin Leyre, politicians will be pressured to revisit safety measures.
