Professor Kazuhiko Kobayashi has done ground breaking work with the University of Tokyo on the impact of climate change on rice nutrition. This is important work and it has been widely featured in national and international media. Kazuhiko’s real passion however is to warn people about the worst criminality against humankind: nuclear power and nuclear weapons. Kazuhiko organises respite for children and families who have been impacted by the ongoing Fukushima disaster. Members of Radiation Free Lakeland met up with Kazuhiko last autumn to show him the Sellafield area and he told us that there is money for climate research but not so much for research into the impacts of radiation on our food and health. He is a kind gentle man and he was visibly shocked to see the scale of Sellafield. Kazuhiko broke down in tears within the shadow of Sellafield, at the impacts the nuclear industry is having on our children’s health. His passionate opposition to nuclear power and weapons, his work for change and to help those impacted, is an inspiration.
