Seems to me that we have several critical issues.
1) Three reactors have melted causing radiation levels to be so high that they were using water canons.
2)Explosions, earthquake, and tsunami have caused critical damage. Without an assessment of the damage I cannot comment on the complications to
systems but we do know the cooling has been destroyed.
3)Pools have not caught fire but will without water being replenished. Pools cannot be entombed due to their nature they must continue to circulate to
prevent overheating and as they sit they will only produce more steam and heat.
The best I can say is this:
One to two million men will have to be sent in to remove the fuel rods from the pools. This will require carefully timed work rotations. This fuel
will require vertical dry casks for storage, these will have to be fabricated in a hurry.
Next enough debris must be removed to allow the construction of large containment shells around each reactor building. If any of the reactors have
undergone full meltdown it may also be necessary to dig tunnels under the plant to prevent the super heated mass from burning through the crust of the
earth (e.g. Chernobyl). After this a more permanent containment can be erected.
Estimated death rate will begin near 100% fatality and gradually reach a 20-30% long-term survival rate as more radiation is contained.
There are to many details to say but this would be is a good start.
I could provide a more decisive action plan with proper information but then again so could they.
