Bag’s Take-Away:

The completely cryptic/screwed up way I find out Fukushima news. Accompanying gallery pic of nearby port, photo credit indicates continued radioactive dumping into ocean based on some “new setback.” 


(photo: Reuters caption: Japan Coast Guard members wearing protective suits search for March 11 earthquake and tsunami victims from their vessel at Ukedo port in Namie town, Fukushima prefecture, near the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, May 25, 2011. Radioactive water appears to be leaking from a waste disposal building at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear complex, operator Tokyo Electric Power said on Thursday, in a new setback to the battle to contain radiation from the crippled power plant. Picture taken May 25, 2011.)
