Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) recently admitted that 300 tons (nearly 72,000 gallons) of contaminated water are leaking from Japan's crippled Fukushima Daiichi plant into the Pacific Ocean. About 1000 tons of underground water from the nearby

Yes. I would say they had a good idea this would happen and they have wasted time. So to say get on with it is a understatement. I am sure their will the usual rounds of bows and apologies and maybe a relinquishing of position or authority but they dropped the ball and no mater what it costs they should have to to fix it, Now!

The scary pat of all this, is that so many nuclear plants are built by the sea. Meaning, there is the potential for this to happen over and over again.

Noted. "could be another disaster in the making"....due to the earthquake-prone region. Sounds kind of like the idea some idiot promoted when the Gulf Geyser spewed.....to throw a bunch of golf balls in it. This thing has been leaking for so long, and so many lies have been told regarding the leakage, that I have little faith in this new method.

Never thought it would be Japan that would have problems like this. They seem to always have contingency plans for their contingency plans. If it happened to them, then we should worry...more than wea lready are. Heads of TEPCO need to be fired.

Why in the world have they delayed so long on this? With all the technology that Japan seems to have, they've been going at a snail's pace while this toxic brew is spewing into the Pacific, poisoning everything in its path.

although they said they didnt want it, we sent million to japan after the tsunami. they proceeded to leave the destruction and return to whaling and buying whale meat from iceland with your $$$. thousands of pets were left to starve/die at the nuclear site. just sayin

I pray they have a successful outcome, however this is the nature of nuclear power ...from a little much is generated. So how many more of these power plants have to leach or "out grow" there walls before we stop using them. Chernobyl was in 1986 , it may not be in the news everyday but it's long term effects just keep on going.

The Japanese government has been keeping this leak quiet for such a long time now and in the meantime TEPCO has tried an concrete wall to stop it, but it just went under it. And now this ice wall. I won't hold my breath until it works.
The new prime minister came to power after a campaign in which he said he would restart the other nuclear power plants which are under moratorium, and despite this he was elected. At the moment his main aim is to get the others on line again. So this doesn't appear to be a government that takes nuclear fallout and contamination very serious, despite their country's experience with Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It might be best for all if other countries in the region assist with Fukushima's containment before more water leaks into the ocean.

This is a real tragedy, seems that Japan does't like to speak about this and be clear about the real situation :(((
