You just can’t make this up: proving that Japan can outdo even the Russians when it comes to nuclear crisis “response”, Dow Jones reports that the latest scheme to come out of TEPCO is to cover Fukushima with a giant tent. It is unclear if it will have a circus coloration yet. From DJ: “Giant polyester covers will soon be placed around the damaged reactor buildings at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear complex to help contain the release of radioactive substances into the atmosphere, the plant operator said Friday. Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) will install the first cover at the No. 1 reactor, the focus of recent stabilization efforts, starting next month.” This probably means that Japan looked long and hard at the concrete shell option and realized it was impossible, which is true. The problem is that by now the melted cores are not in the complex, but deep beneath it and the radioactivity is actively seeping directly into the soil. And since the polyester tent idea is doomed to failure, it is only a matter of time before the Simpsons dome is firmly in place over a ragion with a radius of about 20 kilometers. Impossible you say? Just wait.

From DJ:

Workers will erect a steel framework and place a giant polyester tent-like cover around the reactor building. Similar covers will be placed around units No. 3 and 4. The work is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

A series of hydrogen explosions blew off the roofs and upper walls of the three reactors in the days after the March 11 earthquake and tsunami knocked out their cooling systems, triggering the overheating of the reactors.

The explosions scattered a large amount of radioactive debris in the area around the reactors. Workers will have to clear the debris near the No. 1 unit so that cranes and other heavy equipment can approach the reactor. TEPCO said it began shifting debris from the area around the unit Friday.

The damaged buildings have come to symbolize the severity of the nuclear crisis at the plant, the worst nuclear accident since Chernobyl in 1986.

The loss of the roofs and filters above the reactors has led to the steady release of radioactive substances from the complex, prompting calls for measures to contain contamination in the surrounding areas.

Artist’s impression of this latest Japanese venture: handle backwards is how I feel about current world affairs...

Dennis Will they have clowns and elephants?
Yes they will but they will be unlike any you've seen before. These amazing beast will have dual heads, and or trunks, a few extra extremities, and some will be blinded buy the bright colors. But the show must go on.

Japanese engineers have abandoned their latest attempt to stabilise a stricken reactor at the Fukushima plant.

Residents have been moved further away from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant as the no-go zone is extended and repair works are halted.

More evacuations are expected in the coming days.

Efforts to control the collapse of Fukushima are continuing to face problems.

The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco), had intended to cool reactor 1 by filling the containment chamber with water.

But Tepco said melting fuel rods had created a hole in the chamber, allowing 3,000 tonnes of contaminated water to leak into the basement of the reactor building.

Why dont they ever talk about the plutonium?

Warning...This hobby is very addictive and may damage your wealth

Negative. Ring one is Godzilla, ring 2; Mothra.

I give up on Loctite, nothing lasts long enough to vibrate loose anymore.

Why talk about it ???
The international media is largely silent: Information is becoming even more limited.

Why discuss or inform the public the merit's of a contagious abscess ?

Doubt if their is a objective plan
