GE Shipping Turbines to Japan to Cover Electricity Shortfalls

Most likely GE will make a hefty profit on these emergency generators.  First they trash Japan with badly designed nuke plants and then they ride to the rescue.  What a racket.

Shock Doctrine is right.

“All of the plant’s reactors were designed by GE, and Immelt offered assistance in dealing with the electricity shortage brought on by damage to the Fukushima Dai-ichi facility and other power plants. Japan is expecting a shortfall of at least 10 million kilowatts in summer, and Immelt said gas turbines with both short- and long-term capabilities are on their way from the U.S.”
