(Japan Today)   Highly toxic Fukushima chemical waste moved to Hokkaido for detoxification. Okay, good start, but who's the protester girl character and what kind of monster budget are we looking at?   (japantoday.com) divider line

Monster budget won't have to be much, as Hokkaido monster cow costumes are already available.

Being Japan, this could be good or bad.

Processing starts next to a medical waste facility.  Meanwhile a patient suffering from toxic megacolon undergoes a colon resection and the leftovers go to the waste facility.

As expected a leak caused by poor management at the nuclear waste facility flows into the vat housing the megacolon, which soon gains sentience and grows rapidly thanks to radiation and consuming the rest of the human bits meant for incineration.  As its food supply dwindles it becomes predatory and begins to hunt humans.

PCBs are nasty stuff, they are quick on the biological uptake but slow to decay otherwise. The slow decay is why they were used in electrical equipment in the first place. Pretty much the only way to get rid of them is with a plasma torch to break them down to individual atoms.

Before Europe enacted RoHS, a lot of consumer electronics circuit boards were coated with variants of PCBs for insulation / fireproofing.

I always assumed that PCB in that context actually meant PCB and not Printed Circuit Board. 

I guess it was a dual meaning.

Oh yeah, Love Canal too.

PCB's aren't good for children and other living things. Or was it war? So hard to remember.

You want to get a good depression on, look up Minmata, Pretty sure the Japanese remember that.

Japan is weird. 

And I don't watch their cartoons. Here's a quick google image of a Japan cartoon. Godzilla.

They are transporting it for detoxification? Good.

It is news only for the search words and algorithms, I guess. Pack enough of the right words into an article and it automatically morphs into "newsworthy."

I propose the following ideal news story guaranteed to get the clicks.

Monkeypox. Immigrants. Hornets. Radiation.

Now mix that around and you can write for The Sun, or maybe the NYT. That is the new journalism.
