More Fukushima funnies

By Pascal Dennis

Yet More Fukushima Funnies - "Okay, we have a problem..."

More from the Japan Times on the Fukushima disaster.

"The stricken nuclear power plant at Fukushima has probably been leaking contaminated water into the ocean for two years, ever since an earthquake and tsunami badly damaged the plant, Japans chief nuclear regulator said on Wednesday.

In unusually candid comments, Shunichi Tanaka, the head of the Nuclear Regulation Authority, also said that neither his staff nor the plant operator knew exactly where the leaks were coming from, or how to stop them...

Until recently, Tokyo Electric, known as TEPCO, flatly denied that any of that water was leaking into the ocean, even though various independent studies of radiation levels in the nearby ocean have suggested otherwise."

Sometimes, satire is redundant.
