    It'll take 40 years and $11 billion to clean it up, apparently.

    The 11 billion seems arbitrary to the 40 years.


    When do the 3-headed Springfield fish start appearing?

    According to today's NYT, though, the levels aren't hazardous.

    Didn't really read that in the story:


    Unless you read another story. The plan to freeze the area is intriguing. Should be good photos of that one day.

    Yeah, I actually did. Yours is shorter.


    "Despite increasing alarm among regulators in recent weeks, the plant’s operator says it does not yet pose a health threat because levels of the contaminants are still very low in the open ocean, beyond the plant’s man-made harbor — a contention even critics support."

    Anything TEPCO says -- even whether the sun rose today -- should be taken with a Mount Fuji-sized grain of salt. It continues to rake in profits by doing as little as possible with Fukushima, biding its time until it gets nationalized and freed from the responsibility of actually paying for the pain and suffering stemming from its chronic mismanagement.
