Some Bad And Some Good News On That Radiation Leak

First the bad news:

  • It is coming. According to Japan's trade minister a leak will likely take place as the pressure is released imminently by TEPCO.

The good news:

  • The radiation released will be small.

It is unclear if the same measurement methods as are used in the calculation of Core CPI will be applied in calculating leakage. As to whether this "small amount" of radiation is alpha, beta or gamma, those interested to find out will get an answer based on the amount of extra fingers grown over the next month.
