Will we ever get a straight answer out of anyone about what really happened, and how it will affect us? Nope.
HIGHLY radioactive water, endangering workers and hindering repair efforts at the Fukushima nuclear plant, was the result of a “partial meltdown” of the fuel rods in the plant’s No 2 reactor, Japan’s chief government spokesman admitted yesterday.
Chief cabinet secretary Yukio Edano said the water was believed to have temporarily come into contact with the partially melted fuel rods inside the reactor.
After another day of unnerving aftershocks and fresh problems at the Fukushima plant, Mr Edano attacked the Tokyo Electric Power Company for its continued bungled handling of the crisis.
At a time like this, it’s such a distinct advantage to have a company trying to maintain its financial viability by blowing smoke up everyone’s ass instead of a government agency whose management just wants to get the job done.
That last line was ironic. We’re just screwed, no matter what.
