Brilliant satire from a team of Berlin art directors...
Tepco's failure to manage the buildup of contaminated water came to light last summer, when it admitted that at least 300 tons of tainted water were leaking into the sea every day.
It's deeply disturbing to see that Fukushima's plant operators never bothered to prepare for the worst-scenario, and that their backup plans were so inadequate. And now we learn that the people exposed to this radiation are guinea pigs, since no
This was the second time in 11 days they've had this kind of leak, so you might get the impression that the plant isn't all that stable. This sort of thing might also explain why the seaweed on the West Coast is testing so much higher for
Fukushima No. 2 Reactor Has '10 Times The Fatal Dose' Of Radiation. Meanwhile, Original Contamination Data Was Deleted
Both the actual situation at the No. 2 Fukushima reactor and the news of the massive coverup that went with it? It just keeps getting worse: TOKYO (AP) — One of Japan's crippled nuclear reactors still has fatally high radiation levels and
Of course, if it wasn't coming from a company that has already lied, exaggerated or miscontrued so much important information, we could listen to their suggestion of a broken thermometer with a straight face: Concern is growing that the
Maybe I'm missing something, but if the place is too contaminated by radiation for humans to live there, why would anyone want food grown there? Why would the government encourage people to eat crops grown in radioactive soil? Japan is planning a
I have to think this is in our future, too. (After all, we're giving a loan guarantee to TEPCO to build a nuclear plant in Texas.) And it's pretty clear that when it comes to these corporate disasters, the financial needs of the corporations are
"The cat's still on the roof, and we're having a lot of trouble getting her down..." More bad news from TEPCO: TOKYO — At least 45 tons of highly radioactive water has leaked from a purification facility at the Fukushima Daiichi buclear power
Remember my joke about "the cat's on the roof"? If this is what they admit to, it was probably worse. Fuel rods inside one of the reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant may have completely melted and bored most of the way
