Solari Hero of the Year 2011: The Fukushima 50


If you’ve listened throughout 2011, you know we have a hero for each Solari Report. It’s astonishing if you go back and you look at all the heroes we’ve had for 2011 how many extraordinary people there are in this world, how many people have inspired us, how many people we can look to for leadership!

The world is full of some pretty wonderful people, but there’s no doubt the standout in 2011 was the Fukushima 50. Fukushima 50 is the alias that was given to the group of employees who at the crippled Fukushima power plant stayed on as everyone else was evacuated to deal with the ongoing series of nuclear incidents. I can’t imagine what would have happened without their courage and sacrifice.
