    the japanese.guv were fans of sweat camps in wwII, i guess they just can't shake that concept. since they don't have their hands on some ethnicity, they choose to enslave the children and exploit them, like it's some kind of war time.

    seriously, this would not be legal in my nation, nor would it be accepted. it's abhorant. even for adults.

    even if adults were to be sent in to do the work, they'd be in full hazmat attire and be provided with mobile showers etc.

    woeful.

    Q? Why does de-commissioning take so long?
    A- Because the workers are dying and urinating blood.
    Q? Can't they pump all the water out and pump lots of oxygen in instead of nitrogen?
    A- The environment and others outside the plant will suffer, besides, there are too
    many fuel rods inside and some areas are already decontaminated.
    Q? Won't that cause a rapid burn of the material?
    A- Yes, they are burning nuclear waste anyway.
    Q? Is it safe and really necessary?
    A- If the building collapse or another strong earthquake comes, it might burn anyway.
    Q? Is it safe to leave things the way they are?
    A- No
    Q? Then why don't they do something now?
    A- Back to the first answer.
