TEPCO, the Japanese company that operates the nuclear power plant from hell, now says it will take 6 to 9 months to achieve a cold shutdown on the three reactors that are melting down. Oh really? Not that I don’t believe power company officials to be some of the nicest people around, but so much of what these guys have fed us in the past has been nothing but PR spin, why would we be inclined to believe anything they say?
It would be as ridiculous as Eliot Spitzer doing a live interview with the former head of Shell Oil to ask his advice on solving the energy crisis in America. Oh wait…..that happened, didn’t it.
