NUMNUTZES OF THE WEEK:

  • Scientists propose getting rid of nuclear waste by injecting it into fracking boreholes – two bad energy policies in one!
  • TEPCO loses the plant schematics for Fukushima after 3/11/11 — and no one has a duplicate copy!
  • EVIL NUMNUTZ:  Japan’s National Cancer Institute releases a comic book that tells children that half of them will get cancer but they need to practice “prevention.”  Blame the victim much?

PLUS:

  • 83-year-old Sister Megan Rice continues her anti-nuclear activism in jail while facing a possible 30-year prison sentence for last year’s civil disobedience against the Oak Ridge Y12 National Security Complex.  There’s a call for Pope Francis to acknowledge and champion her.
