It has been 4400 days since not one, not two, but three nuclear fuel bundles melted at the Fukushima-Daiichi generating station in northeastern Japan following the devastating earthquake and tsunami of March 11. Nobody has died from radiation so far.
That includes a Japanese member of parliament, who last Monday drank a glass of decontaminated water taken from the flooded basement of one of the reactor buildings. Here he is on YouTube:
For those who believe nuclear is unredeemably dangerous, my question is: how is this guy still alive?
Cool! I’ll drink to that myself! He ought be making a drinking tour around Japan doing that to help assauge off-the-wall-fears and save Japan several billion dollars doing silly things like more lung-corroding coal plants and windmills atop Mt. Fugi.
I guess it was only a matter of time before fiscal reality could no longer be ignored:
“Forthcoming study by accountants will argue UK can save £34bn by ditching renewable energy
The renewable energy industry has slammed the findings of a forthcoming report that suggests the UK could save £34bn by ditching plans for a massive expansion in wind power capacity.
The preliminary findings of a report by KMPG, previewed in the Sunday Times yesterday, claimed Britain could meet its 2020 carbon reduction targets more cost effectively by building nuclear and gas-fired power stations instead of wind farms.”
Does this mean saporro beer is okay to drink?
The video is working now.
They ought bottle that water and ship it as a novelty item! It’d sell!!
