Green Post: How Long?
A cartoon in a local daily depicting popular Japanese icon Ultraman(inset) running away from an oncoming tsunami drew flukes from the public in Malaysia. Deemed distasteful and insensitive, the cartoon created a buzz on social networking sites. Japan just went through a devastating tsunami where more than 10,000 people were feared dead. On top of all that, the cooling systems of a nuclear plant in Fukushima had been knocked out and an ensuing explosion had sent smokes and most probably radiation billowing into the sky. While the chief government spokesman Yukio Edano said the reactor was probably undamaged and there was a low possibility of a major radiation leak, the question now is - for how long?
