Goshi Hosono, Minister in Charge of Fukushima Accident to Become the Minister of the Environment

The Ministry of the Environment is going to oversee the Nuclear Safety Agency to be created next year. Hosono continues to be the minister in charge of the Fukushima nuclear accident under the new prime minister Yoshihiko Noda.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs is Koichiro Genba, whose last notable remark I remember was "Let's all cheer for TEPCO".

Bit of conflict of interest? Or "fox guarding the hen house?" Of course, if the spread of radiation continues, the tune will change when government officials find THEIR families in danger!

- the radiations do spread.
- "...their famillies in danger" ???
I think you're very very very optimistic about human nature.
History proves just the contrary.

Perhaps they will continue on their path and treat us to impossible scenes of internecine warfare, never to be outdone by others anywhere.

And how many steps have they taken in that direction to date?
Secretly shipped beef hither.
And now the clownfaces want us to eat their peaches.

Goshi Hosono is the poster child for politicians that are given postitions that are beyond thier capability. Goshi Hosono has a degree in law, I am almost certain that the degree in law didn't cover nuclear radiation issues, yet, there he is. His management as Minister of Nuclear Crisis Management was one big disaster on top of the nuclear disaster. As his reward for smiling pretty for the cameras, he is given the Ministry of Environment. What a joke. Do you wonder how far up someonen's ass his nose was?
