Fukushima worker confesses “There is nothing left that we could do”, Fukushima Diary by Mochizuki, November 23, 2011 (Emphasis Added):
This Fukushima worker (Twitter account Happy20790) tweets useful information daily. [...]
In short, he says Tepco started reducing the number of workers because they can not do anything for the reactors anymore. [...]
He explains, the next thing to do is to check the state of container vessels pressure vessels, define the actual point of the leakage of contaminated water, and action to stop the leakage, but there is zero plan / idea how to manage it.
The interiors of the buildings are extremely radioactive and nobody can officially go into reactor 3 [...] The only thing they can do is to analyze the gas from inside of the container vessels.
Thus nothing can be done by human anymore. They can only clean debris, take away broken operation floor, maintain the water purifying system, setting new tanks etc..
