    That radioactive water? Child’s stuff! There are about 2000 TONS of highly irradiated uranium, cesium, strontium and – worst of all – plutonium. NONE of this has ever been even attempted to regain from a molten mass of steel, barium and concrete that has eaten itself halfway through the foundations (8 meters thick…) of a reactor.

    -

    There are over 200 perfectly intact fuel elements in the SFP of reactor four and they don’t have a CLUE how to get THOSE out without frying everybody, for Pete’s sake! These guys really effed up.

    -

    This will take longer than 40 years. Given the Japanese mentality they will claim to be in plan for 39 years, then cover it all in concrete, hope for the best (which will NOT work in this environment) and then claim “victory”. Banzai my bottom!

    Aren’t there several nuclear power plants here of the same exact design?
    -
    Oh well, maybe they’ll consult with British Petroleum on how to overcome a disaster using a media blitz.

    Is it possible that all of the posts preceding this one are actually in agreement that this cartoon represents is a bad situation?
    One wonders how gov’ts will respond. Will more food inspectors be dispatched to test seafood? Will contaminated food be detectable by gieger counter or is it a tissue test? I really do not know, but eating Pacific salmon and crab is going to be disconcerting to me until I know.
    Saw some beautiful trout in the rivers of Tenn during my vacation last week. So sorry Japan and the rest of us have to be concerned about this contamination.
    Respectfully,

    You can move to Fukushima since you said,“this plant is doing really good…” Um, no! You are really addled, and you shouldn’t suggest Adrian Snare needs medications judging from your posts.

    From “atoms for peace” back to “atoms for pieces”. Technology is capable of improvement, but accountants, not engineers make the designs “business” will follow.

    @swr

    " this plant is doing really good for going though an earthquake and tidalwave that both exceeded its design specs."
    -
    I s’pose revisiting the design specs to have them conform to what is seismically likely would have costs and would therefore be Bad For Business.
    -
    I’m guessing that you don’t live in close proximity to one of those reactors?

    As the flawed design plans of the Japanese plants are mirrored by similar design flaws in American nuclear facilities.
