The local ABC affiliate in San Francisco has broadcast a frightening news story about the 2011 Japanese nuclear accident, which followed a massive earthquake and tsunami.
Award-winning reporter David Ono described it this way: "Fukushima is potentially the biggest ticking time bomb in human history."
Ono included a year-old quote from Vancouver's David Suzuki, who said that if there's another large earthquake in Japan, it could have catastrophic implications across the Pacific Ocean.
That's because the Fukushima nuclear-power plant has even fewer defences today than before the tsunami.
"It's bye bye Japan, and everybody on the west coast of North America should evacuate," Suzuki said in October 2013. "Now if that isn't terrifying, I don't know what is."
Suzuki's entire presentation can be seen below.
