Plutonium has been detected in soil at five locations at the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. said Monday.
The operator of the nuclear complex said that the plutonium is believed to have been discharged from nuclear fuel at the plant, which was damaged by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
UPDATE: Let’s see. We have radioactive water now leaking directly into the ocean and it sure looks like we have at least a partial meltdown. Wheee!
Sometimes you just shouldn’t fuck with things.
