Tepco has done more to hurt the revitalization of nuclear power here in the US than Chernobyl ever could, Even though even though Chernobyl released far more radioactivity perhaps the oil, coal and gas companies should pay Tepco for their "unintentional marketing efforts" On their behalf against the nuclear power industry.

I think its time the American and Candian governments build huge dams at either end of the Straight of Georgia using Vancouver Island as a barrier to the Pacific Ocean. Save at least some of the sea life in the Pacific like the Killer Whales and our local Salmon from the extinction event they are otherwise facing. The power potential from these dams could shut down at least a few of the nuclear reactors currently in use.

Acoustic levitation methods can be used to "centralize&quo t; the radioactive materials in the contaminated water, and while it is held in suspension can be drilled with high intensity lasers, which will force decay. The energy released can be captured and used, transmutations of transuranic to 'non' radioactive.

Why are they not decontaminating the waste-water? A large spinning drum and an x-ray laser would be enough to force the decay and into a specified zone, where energy could be captured at the same time. Problem for them is understanding how to "force decay" radioactive materials.

“They let people know about the good things and hide the bad things. This culture of cover-up hasn’t changed since the disaster,”

Jesus Christ what a cluster fcukk this is. If what they are admitting publicly is this horrifying imagine what's really going on behind the scenes.
