how dodgy can japan get


JAPAN has confirmed it plans to use some of the public funds earmarked for quake and tsunami reconstruction to boost security for its controversial annual whale hunt.
Greenpeace alleged that Tokyo was siphoning money from disaster victims by spending an extra 2.28 billion yen ($A29 million) on beefed-up security for its whaling fleet. Environmental groups are expected to renew their battle with the Japanese ships soon.
Japan's whaling fleet left port yesterday for this season's annual hunt in Antarctica. The coastguard said earlier that it would deploy an unspecified number of guards to protect the ships from anti-whaling activists.
Fisheries Agency official Tatsuya Nakaoku said the extra security was designed to ensure safer hunts, and ultimately help coastal towns that are largely rely on whaling as they recover from the March 11 disasters.
"The government will support the reconstruction effort of a whaling town and nearby areas," he told AFP today.
"This program can help it reconstruct food-processing plants there... Many people in the area eat whale meat, too. They are waiting for Japan's commercial whaling to resume."
In February, Japan cut short 2010-2011 hunt by one month after bagging only one-fifth of its planned catch. It blamed interference from the US-based environmental group Sea Shepherd.
Last month, Japan passed a 12.1 trillion-yen extra budget, the third this year, to finance reconstruction and revive an economy that is still reeling from the impact of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
About 498.9 billion yen was earmarked for fisheries-related spending, including 2.28 billion yen for "stabilising whaling research".
"We will bolster measures against acts of sabotage by anti-whaling groups so as to stably carry out the Antarctic whaling research," the fisheries department said after the budget was passed.
Commercial whaling is banned under an international treaty but since 1987 Japan has used a loophole to carry out "lethal research" on the creatures in the name of science.
Japan says it is necessary to substantiate its view that there is a robust whale population in the world, but does not hide the fact that whale meat from this research ends up on dinner tables and in restaurants.
Anti-whaling nations and environmentalist groups routinely condemn the activity as a cover for commercial whaling.

I think they have a bit of an obsession with robots. They usually trot out some prototype at their version of a star trek convention and claim it will do everything short of having sex with you. I suppose they are not ready for prime time though...

I'm sure they will give the loons at PETA consideration similar to what they give the Greenpeace anti-whaling boats..."You want save monkey?....You run into leactor and fetch monkey then!"

It's probably not far from the truth. On the way into Rangoon last year just after the disaster, I saw three Japanese people being scanned by people in radiation suits holding geiger counters. I later discovered out that they'd flown in from Seoul and hadn't been to Japan for six months.

More than a year into the nuclear crisis at Fukushima – radiation levels have reached their highest point yet within reactor 2 at the crippled plant. At ten times the immediate lethal dose – TEPCO is scrambling to find new robots and equipment that can sustain the radiation to locate and remove melting nuclear fuel. Their current robots and equipment cannot work within such highly radioactive environments. To make problems worse, levels of water within the reactors needed to keep the cores from melting down are getting dangerously low.

I would have thought keeping water on it would have been straightened out after a year. 10 times the immediate lethal dose.

Jeeezzzzzz
