To most of the reply's...
Japan have had countless warnings from surrounding country' and other's, that it's not very smart to build a nuclear plant, in a fault zone.
That they ignored.
They build the plant at sea level, placing every emergency equipment right next to the reactors, at sea level.
Well knowing that,very big earthquake's and tsunami's hit this coast.(Short look at history)
They place thousen of spend fuelrod's in the reactor's, not in a safe place, and still at sea level.
They use more powerfull fuel, which sadly also is more toxic.
Then disaster, ican't blame the guy's for that one, so those of you who thought so
Big nasty earthquake, with a following tsunami, every emergency equipment get's knock out in one blow, and no backup plan.
The next part should never have happened.
The disaster is complete, what do they do.
They say no to any help, from outside country's.
They watch as the reactor's, one by one is breaking apart.
They throw 4 buckets of water, and place an oversized waterhose to turn down temperature in the reactor's.
They take a longer cable with electric power to run the emergency generator's, which they can get to cause the radiation is now to high.( I am aware
of, that some generator's are running as we speak)
One week has now past.
They realized that this is bad, very bad.
They send a guy on television, crying and saying sorry.( I got emotion, so i have no doubt about this guy showing real feelings)
They go back to look at the damage(I am aware of, that they are working very hard to solve this mess)
They come up with the idea to entomb the reactor's.(This should have been started preparing, when the top of the reactor's blew up)
Every one working on this plant, was aware of all of the above,...EVERYONE!!!
I don't wish any of them to get hurt, but you can not make them hero's, thats against common sense.
This situation seems to have run wild, i hate it, i have no way i can help, but to donate money, and goodluck thoughts.
Me and i, hope they fix it....
