With Fukushima offline, Japan’s in the midst of a serious energy crunch. To help turn down the juice suckage, the government is pushing Japanese salarymen to dress down. Way down. Cool (as in temperature, and nothing else) Hawaiian shirts: in!
In an environment as inhospitable as Japan’s wasted Fukushima nuclear plant, there’s no feasible way for humans to partake in salvage efforts. Which is why Japan has called on the services of 23 brave rescue robots to enter the heart of darkness.
This reporter films his journey into the evacuation zone around Japan’s troubled Fukushima nuclear plant. Normally crowded streets are empty but for a pack of dogs and a few flat-bed trucks carrying unknown cargo. A Geiger counter measures extremely high radiation.
Japan’s Healthy Ministry has advised villagers near the nuclear plant to not drink the tap water because of radioactive iodine. Ministry spokesman Takayuki Matsuda said that radioactive iodine three times the normal level was found in water 30km away from the nuclear plant. The contaminated water is only one twenty-sixth of a chest X-ray and poses no danger, but it’s better to be safe at this point. [Washington Post]
