I do not defend the Position of Japan,
i wrote that it is Justified, two different things!
And yes, imo. the Fukushima Crisis is not a Extinction Level Event
at this Time, there is a lot of Potencial but at the moment it is
just a Melt-Down of three Reactor Cores and i really hope that it
will not expand in to a Global Catastrophe!
Building Nr.4 was reinforced in the Months after 3/11, whole Floors
got filled up with Concrete, we see new Frames inside and the Static
got improved a lot, i am here in Japan since more than 10 Years and
i never heard that a Industrial Building collapsed because of an Earthquake!
A Reactor is not a 08/15 (average) Building
but come with reinforced Walls,
alone the Spend Fuel Pool is coming with Walls thicker than 180Cm of
Steel Concrete, i really doubt that it could collapse!
The Fuel: Since the first Videos from the inside of the Pool:
Tepco April 2011:
Tepco & Friends created a Plan to remove the Fuel.
The first Rods was removed in August this Year:
Tepco, Fuel Nr.4
and the Rods looked healthy and un corroded.
They developed a Program for every single Box and i think the Problem
is much smaller than many of you think!
There are Ways to control a possible Re-Criticality,
from Nuclide absorbing Mats
until Boron and/or Nitrogen Injections.
I think this Scenario is well calculated and when the Fuel is out of the
Building i may can restart to live a normal Life with a healthy Sleep Pattern!
