I've just seen on the news that they now have a plan to work towards sorting the situation out within 9 months! I have the link here, although i must say it seems like a joke, they mention decontamination so the people can 'return home' no chance unless they want to die.

Here's the full transcript

Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) chairman Tsunehisa Katsumata told a news conference that the company had come up with a phased road map for ending the crisis and allowing residents evacuated from the area around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to return home.

Officials said the plan involved covering the damaged reactor buildings to contain the radiation.

Frustrations have been mounting over TEPCO's failure to resolve the nuclear crisis, which began when a catastrophic earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on March 11 knocked out power and cooling systems at the Fukushima Daiichi complex.

In the first three months of the plan, the company hopes to steadily reduce the level of leaking radiation, Katsumata said. Three to six months after that, it hopes to get the release of radioactive materials under control.

The company is focusing on cooling the reactors and spent fuel pools, decontaminating water that has been contaminated by radiation, mitigating the release of radiation into the atmosphere and soil and measuring and reducing the amount of radiation effecting the evacuation area, he said.

TEPCO Vice President Sakae Muto said that in addition to covering the reactor buildings, the company will also work with authorities to de-contaminate areas affected by the radiation.

It probably was, but as they say, denial ain't just a river in Egypt. It's serious damage, but maybe they didn't realize how bad it was until they got a better look at it and collected more facts.

Watch the video in my three mile island thread, and you'll see the power company had no idea how bad it was right after the accident. That's probably partly a factor in Japan also.

Thanks for the transcript.

They've got their work cut out for them cleaning up that mess.
