NY Times, Mar 11, 2017 (emphasis added): Some say the radioactive material may prove impossible to remove safely and have suggested leaving it and entombing Fukushima under a concrete and steel sarcophagus like the one used at Chernobyl.

Xinhua, Mar 12, 2017: There have also been concerns that the melted nuclear fuel residue is eroding the concrete bottom of the safety shell of the reactors, having already penetrated the reactor pressure vessel.

Xinhua, Mar 11, 2017: “It is very important to provide the public with information, including information about the concealment of the melted core,” [Naohiro Masuda, head of the TEPCO’s decommissioning unit] said… Masuda said that the residue of melted nuclear fuel is now “mostly immersed in water” and kept at a relatively low temperature, and that there is “no need to worry” about the melted nuclear fuel residue eroding through the concrete bottom of the safety shell.

DW, Mar 11, 2017: Even Shunji Uchida, the Fukushima Daiichi plant manager, couldn’t hide his skepticism from the visiting journalists. “Robots and cameras have already provided us with valuable pictures,” says Uchida, adding: “But it is still unclear what is really going on inside.

    the Japanese want to “save face” over this ELE event and damn sure will not tell the truth regarding this meltdown. There is little doubt that this meltdown is a life altering event and by damn the japs are not gonna take the fall for it. This is an Extinction Level Event and there is no way to contain this crap… and guess wot??? the dumb asses at GE that designed this crap are at it still. HOW PHUCKING STOOPID can you get? There is sufficient evidence that humanity will no longer exist on this planet if ten to fifteen years. The Pacific ocean is now a dead zone. Sea life, plants and animals are nearly gone. The lower food chain is dead and the higher levels of sea life are dying as we speak.

    For those agile enough, please bend over and kiss your ass goodby. For those less agile, TAKE TURNS ’cause its’ not gonna be long.
