Tokyo and Fukushima win Olympic prize

Tokyo won out as the “safe option” against Madrid and Istanbul in the competition to host the Olympic games. Also good news Prime Minister Abe gave a promise to clean up the Fukushima plant by 2020.

In Japanese he provided following soundbite:
“We understand that there have been people voicing concerns over the contaminated water issue in Fukushima. What I can say is the government is taking the lead here to completely solve the issue. And to do that we are implementing drastic measures with firm resolve. I will be explaining (to the International Olympic Committee) that in seven years time, in 2020, it will not be a problem at all.”

  1. the olympics in Japan sound like a Terrible idea! I do not think, in 70 years even, that the Fukushima explosion will be “cleaned up” – the radioactive particles are simply, irrevocably, permeating the planet … it’s really sad.
