I think there need to be more posts like this one, focusing on possible solutions to the Fukushima situation as opposed to the incessant bad news,
fatalism, and/or arguing over HOW BAD the situation is. None of these things are as helpful as actually trying to engage in a productive conversation
about possible remedies to the situation. I, for one, do not want to see the situation play itself out for tens or hundreds of years regardless of
whether the effects will be the end of all life on the planet or something only noticable by a statistician. I also don't believe that anyone is going
to save us from this, and I think that everyone who cares about what is happening in Japan should take a more active role in creating a solution (even
if the politics of the US and Japan make it difficult to carry it out).
That said, I haven't gotten a chance to watch the video (no sound on this computer), but have some other ideas on possible solutions.
-- The idea is outlined towards the bottom of the article. It basically involves pumping borax into the
site since boron intercepts neutrons. I don't know if this is a feasable strategy or if the situation has drastically changed since the article was
written, but it's something to consider.
-- This is one of my half-baked ideas, but I have wondered if this type resonance-based alchemy
could possibly be used in nuclear cleanup by transmuting the radioactive waste into more stable elements.
3. Again, this is one of my half-baked ideas. The idea is to set up stations across the Pacific that filter out heavy elements by using a centrifuge
to extract them from lighter ones. Although this would be a slow process and could not possibly fully counter the damage caused the sheer amount of
radioactive material being released into the ocean, it would be a step in the right direction. Would be best if it didn't do too much damage to
organisms and ran off of some sort of renewable energy like solar or tidal energy.
Hopefully that will get the ball rolling and other members of ATS (especially ones smarter than me) will express some of their ideas or ideas they
have heard as well.
