Maybe they should wait a few years until the Plant is more stable,
this must be controlled by an international Gremium!
I whole heartedly agree, we NEED an international Gremium!!!
I want my Gremium and I want it NOW!!!

What really shocks me is how quiet China and surrounding Countries have been about this.
Maybe because they focus on the facts
(and forget that the danger will continue for the next 10- 20 years at least)

Thank you for your participation, such as it is.
Since you consider this thread a joke, why don't you start one to help "bunch of nutters" understand your perspective on the perceived crisis in your country?
We promise you more than an unsubstantiated rejoinder.
How long have you lived in Japan and what are you doing to help your fellow countrymen, if we may be so bold as to ask?
You seem to be able to throw out inane comments such as the one above, but will not/can not address the real situation, either due to lack of education and understanding, or the obvious intent to disrupt and derail any meaningful communication regarding the true situation at Fukushima Dai-ichi.
Please feel free to join us on any of our signature threads and answer this comment that was left for you by esteemed member j&c, if you please.
Here would be a good place to share your knowledge:
Japan declares a ‘nuclear emergency‘ after quake
As soon as the rods melted through the bottom of the containment vessel and became a molten puddle of radioactive lava (corium) it started melting through the concrete basemat.
At this point, no known technology on earth has the capability to stop the uncontrolled nuclear reaction.
The amount of time this would have taken depends upon a number of factors, but suffice to say, by this time, if the blob hasn't been diluted enough by the concrete, it's in the sandstone/mudstone beneath presently.
If by some chance any of the corium masses haven't made it through the basemat, and they do break through reaching a liquid volume of any appreciable size, and we may see a steam explosion which would leave quite an impressive crater, taking most of the site with it.
We look forward to further communication and perhaps learning something from your unique viewpoint.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Peace Love Light

Another serious accident could take the U.S. nuclear industry down with it. The Fukushima disaster serves as a reminder that, in nuclear power.
Reassuringly, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has been focusing on the electricity problem. Plants now typically have just four hours of backup power (although some have ways to keep electricity going for 14 to 16 hours). The Fukushima plant was without power for several days.
Germany, not known for the types of natural disasters that triggered Japan's crisis, responded to the Fukushima Dai-ichi disaster by shutting down eight of its 17 reactors and moving to phase out the rest by 2022. Should the United States follow suit?

A mysterious and potentially widespread disease is thought to have contributed to the deaths of dozens of ringed seals along Alaska's Arctic coast. Scores more are sickened, some so ill that skin lesions bleed when touched. The animals are an important subsistence food, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has proposed listing them as threatened or endangered under the Endangered Species Act. In July, biologists with the North Slope Borough's Department of Wildlife Management began receiving reports of ringed seals hauled out on beaches, an unusual behavior since the animals usually prefer the water or ice. Since then, they've found at least 100 seals with telltale mangy hair and skin lesions, mostly while traveling by four-wheeler along 30 miles of Beaufort and Chukchi sea coastline outside Barrow.
