NUMNUTZ OF THE WEEK:

Party, anyone?  The pro-nuclear International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) plighted the troth of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations 50 years ago and they want everyone to know!  They work together on issues of food safety, animal production and insect pest control.  If you can’t see what’s wrong with this picture, check out Fukushima’s radioactive rice, the Pacific’s marine animals in species collapse, and, oh well, what’s wrong with nuking mosquitos?  And we wonder why the world’s in such a mess…

Plants sprout in bags of deconaminated soil at Fukushima.  So much for containment!
