Can't they drop massive sheets on them or foam the reactors with some substance so that it does not spread, put some type of casing around them or something in quicktime, have at least a backup plan. Drop some sheets to cover the tops of them at least the smoke won't spread.

It amazes me how many people don't really think that this is a crisis, that they are just trying to scare us?! All day yesterday they barely mentioned the crisis and only covered Libya. Thats because they know how bad its really going to be.
edit on 19-3-2011 by Stevenjames15 because: I wanted to add a link about the food contamination!

I cannot begin to express my utter despair for the Japanese people. I have never felt so hopeless about an event.
I live in La Jolla, CA by the coast. My husband is a scientist and has access to equipment that he is monitoring. We are now making plans for the kids and I to leave the area. If it were just us, we might stay on..but I cannot risk my children..they are most vulnerable.
