NUMNUTZ OF THE WEEK:
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe-baby wants an integrated research center for “more rapid decommissioning” of Fukushima. So when will it begin? Not until April, 2015, at the latest!

Dr. Marvin Resnikoff, senior advisor at Radioactive Waste Management Associates? This week’s guest, nuclear engineer Ernie Goitein? Not holding my breath…
