How is this still happening?
Have any of the reactors actually been entombed yet?
When Chernobyl happened they were on it immediately.
It's been almost a year now and this mess is still going on.
They cant entombed them at the moment,
all that they can do is to stop the Fission (uncontrolled Fusion).
In Chernobyl we faced a different Scenario,
the Core of the Reactor was "blown out", mostly gone,
they could not do anything,
the Core was spread above whole North-Europe!
In Daiichi we face the active Cores, or better molten Cores aka Corium
and they are, should be still inside of the Primary Containment Vessel,
when we just entombed this whole Plant we still have the Fission
until we reach a critical Point where everything explode again!
The Entombment in Chernobyl also took years and do not happened overnight,
this Sarcophagus is broken, with Holes bigger than 50-100 Square-meters,
Birds are nesting inside and everything is un-protected, Un-shilded ,
many People do not know than Chernobyl can return to a disaster
at any moment !
They need a new Sarcophagus asap.,
but the Ukraine do not have the Money (at least 1 Billion Euro)
and the EU dont want to help, only the Germans are willing to pay a bit!
Please also do not forget the High Price they paid for this PR-Action,
so many young Mens lost their Life in Chernobyl,
only a few of the 600.000 Liquidators are still alive,
i am very happy that we don't see this kind of Kamikaze-Mode in F'Shima anymore!
Don't fall for the Gossip that F'Shima is still spreading massive amount of Radiation,
it is still high but not massive like we saw in the beginning,
compare to the first two Weeks we see now 1/ 13.000.000 of the Becquerel Emission
and this is much less
(before they 13.000.000 bigger Emission)
