Michael Forster Rothbart, Blue Earth project After Chernobyl, After Fukushima, has been busy speaking about his new book Would You Stay?, which focuses on communities near major nuclear accident sites and the individuals who chose to remain.  Last week, he was interviewed on Living on Earth and has recently published photo essays in Mother Jones and Scientific American.  Further information, including an interview and excerpts from his new book can be found on the TED Blog.
