If one wished to write a instruction manual on everything not to do when operating a nuclear power plant, one would be hard pressed to find a
more complete list. The lack of safety backups in the design, the proximity of radioactive water to sea water, the location on a subduction zone, the
lack of hindsight in estimating probable quake strengths, the location of the diesel generators and tanks susceptible to tsunami damage/contamination,
the delays bringing in alternate power sources, the lack of honesty when evaluating damage, the corporate coverup of important information, the pure
lack of common sense in attempting cooling operations...
After this comedy of errors, there is really little anyone can do. Northern Japan is a zombie, dead but not yet fallen down. We have no technology
that can reverse, or even slow at this point, the damage.
I wish them luck in removing the rods. Chances are that everyone who works on that project will die either from acute radiation poisoning or from
cancerous infestation shortly afterwards. Sadly, they will probably be joined soon enough by the population of that area. I have no concern about a
media cover-up... there is nothing left to cover up, really. The damage has been done, all that is left is to watch the aftermath. This was over less
than a week after the tsunami.
