This is no joke but it sure sounds like one. TEPCO has been quietly planning to restart units 5 & 6 at the destroyed Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. As some of the workers pointed out, all of the support services and administration facilities for those reactors are destroyed

You probably heard about the disaster in Japan, followed by hearing about the decision by Germany to abandon nuclear power. You might have thought it would be Japan to make that decision, rather than Germany, which would be logical, even if incorrect. This is the fascinating process by which we create false memories of things that never happened.

If you're mistaken, which you are, then there are no plans yet to raze reactors 5 and 6, though I think their fate remains uncertain. I don't see how they can restart them in an exclusion zone where there is a contamination problem, unless they do a bangup job removing the radiation from around the facilities and build new support facilities, and they would probably be required to build a larger sea wall too, at least I hope so..If they had a 9.0 in March 2011, they could have a 9.3 or 9.4 in the future, so they need to be prepared for that possibility.
And if I am mistaken about that ^^ .. . how can something which is virtually razed to the ground, be restarted?
