While I wish the planet’s energies were going to find a solution to the ongoing nuclear nightmare in Japan whose reactor meltdown seems inevitable — TEPCO has a huge amount of ‘splaining to do, their stonewalling so obvious (yet keeping with corporate character) it defies reason. I’ve been shouting WHERE ARE THE FUCKING ROBOTS? since this horrorshow began, and in a land where mech-fetish and imagination is at its height, one would think a Gundam-style robot could perform the most dangerous tasks. The US is finally sending robots to the reactors, but this should have happened immediately. And the federal technology we perfect for war is so lacking when it comes to industrial accidents. Or to put it more plain, the companies would rather risk lives and trillions instead of a billion on safety. We have the technology. When Tokyo tap water is radiated, you’re in a new frightening age. So Bring On The Robots. Other nations are now rethinking their nuclear plans (DUH) and hopefully America will follow suit. Hopefully.
