If bots cannot work there what can...

All we can do is hope that someone is trying to fix the problem, because right now it seems like they've abandoned the place. So scary, i can't even think about it.

To add I dont even think its considered as much by the world since there seems to be no global media daily updates on the issues there. I try to concentrate and feel it wont get worst but its a terrible situation over there. It would be nice to see how the Fukushima 50 are doing as well..

thanks for theupdate gramps007

Wow very scary and informative video. If only Fox covered important stories like this so thoroughly we would be getting some where.

I cannot believe it is so bad they can't even get robots in there. That's just absurd. This really is one huge mess we've gotten ourselves into.

Pray. It's a way that we seldom use our energies.

What you think, you become.

It’s amazing seeing Russia Today (on behalf of a country, presently massively expanding, its nuclear programme) promoting anti-nuclear sentiment amongst its English speaking, enemies…

MOSCOW, March 23 (Reuters) - Russia doubled foreign orders to build nuclear reactors last year and has a $50 billion order book for the next decade despite jitters over atomic power following the Fukushima disaster, its nuclear power chief said on Friday.
State-owned Rosatom says it builds more nuclear plants worldwide than anyone else and feared that reactor meltdowns at Japan's Fukushima plant, triggered by a tsunami last March, could have prompted customers to switch out of nuclear.
"We knew that we might be facing a year of losses and we would miss out, not only on boosting our contracts, but on keeping our existing contracts," Sergei Kiriyenko, a former prime minister who heads the nuclear monopoly, told reporters.
In reality, he said, the volume of contracts to build nuclear plants abroad almost doubled last year thanks to demand from Asia

Russia's nuclear chief says Japan exaggerating Fukushima crisis
SANYA, China -- The disaster at the Fukushima atomic power plant cannot be compared to Chernobyl, Russia's nuclear chief said Wednesday, suggesting that Tokyo was exaggerating the emergency possibly for financial reasons.

Why Russians Do This Quite Obvious…
1. More Russian made (cheap because it’s unsafe) exported to Europe.
2. Lower economic growth throughout the West
3. It does not affect their own nuclear, exporting, industries because they supply to 3rd world countries (Russian reactor designs are banned throughout most of Europe) but it does help destroy their competitors (Western companies like Frances Avea and Britain’s Sellafield also offering to export FAR safer reactors, to developing countries).

In Short…[
When you hear Russia join the anti-nuclear vote, only those of you most immune to reason, should fail to see you are being used –(for pro-nuclear, but much less safe reactor, Russian export purposes).

NOBODY would Ever see this kind of reporting inside Russia (on a Russian speaking news service). The state would close it down –harass or even murder those reporters (if it deemed “necessary”), because they know it’s a providing mixture of hysteria and one-sided info, against Russia’s interests.

Which of course…
Is precisely why it exports one sided debate like the above video here (I didn’t see two sides on it, Did You?)

See also the defiant Russian reaction one month after:

By all means make up your own minds, but try to get used by the subversive (and actually pro-nuclear but anti safety) goals of another, pro-nuclear power.

What they didn’t tell you…
The only reason why some robots won’t work is because they are remote controlled, or contain computer chips vulnerable to ionising radiation. But in Fukushima (as other reactors) there were robots that operated inside the reactor for decades. The difference: All instructions to them are sent by cable, along with electricity.
So whilst some robots won’t work, it is not impossible to design those that will. In fact: The Russians have already fully developed such robots (used in Chernobyl), but probably omitted that from their reporting, for fear of giving Western audiences ant reassurances –remember our fear is of vital assistance to their far more unsafe, practices.
