Fukushima Daiichi: Why it’s so hard to clean up — Fairewinds Energy Education

Arnie Gundersen of Fairewinds Energy Education explains the key differences between the decommissioning processes of the nuclear reactors in Fukushima, Three Mile Island and Chernobyl.  His conclusion with regard to Fukushima No. 1 is this: “The solution is not to pump water out of the containment but to prevent the water from going in.” He proposes this means through a underground wall that will act similarly to the sarcophagus at Chernobyl. “… The best thing for the Japanese  to do is to admit that they’re gonna have to live with radioactive rubble at the Fukushima site for over 100 years.”
