It is concerning that all that endless water there spraying on 'it' is being stored in giant balloons, on the coast, beside the reactor.. they're all leaking, they're vulnerable and wobbly.. imagine all that water breaking loose in minor earthquake and flushing down over the nuclear site and into the sea.
would such a sudden tidal wave of water gushing down the hill from bursting tanks cause significant damage to our current recover efforts? equipment lost, radiated, current fixings in place coming loose?
would instant mass water dumped cause a steam type explosion further f***ing things up?
Seriously, 3yrs now we've had.. 3 reactors cooking and releasing emissions into the sky and the ocean. How long did Chernobyl last, that was 1 reactor!?!
