AP, Sept. 14, 2013: Dale Klein, a former NRC chairman who was also in Tokyo as a TEPCO adviser, said Friday that the contaminated water problem would last “for at least a decade” until planned removal of molten fuel that needs constant cooling begins. “Water would be an issue that TEPCO would have to pay attention for a long time,” he said.

ABC News, Sept. 14, 2013: [...] TEPCO, [Klein] believes, is simply not capable of handling the extremely difficult water issue, a problem that, he says, they will be dealing with “for the next decade.”

    All those nuclear "experts" are on overtime trying to save the face of nuclear power. We have all seen the lying, cheating, ignorant face of nuclear power and the false words that are spoken.

    Well take a good look here, because this is the true exposed ass of nuclear power. Discharging it's genome killing radionuclides upon all that is life. There is no roll of toilet paper large enough to clean this shitty mess up.

    This planet is already on borrowed time and the toilet is getting plugged. These nuclear "experts" have no plunger and just continue to flush, spilling the toilet all over this planet.

    Read it, This is the ASS of nuclear power…

    Perhaps the arrival of TS Man-Yi will clean up the mess.

    STATEMENT MADE – TEPCO, [Klein] believes, is simply not capable of handling the extremely difficult water issue, a problem that, he says, they will be dealing with “for the next decade.”

    The above statement is the lamest way to say, "TEPCO is full of BRAIN-DEAD ideas from no-brain leadership who, are not willing to spend money to protect anyone, including the Planet!"

    Hey Klein (you a hack nuclear scientist now or a hack news analyst?) you think that they only have a "decade of water problems" to deal with? Go back and do some real scientific research instead of lousy guessing.

    All the statements we've been hearing….First its under control then, in two years it will be under control then, in 10 years then, in 100 years then in 1,000 years then, it will NEVER be under control….Ok you nuclear guessing experts what's the reality here?

    Face facts: we'll all be dead and so will 100 generations of Mankind by the time this "clean energy" is somehow made inert!
    Go for it….

    We need a worldwide consortium made up of experts in the field to start brainstorming solutions to what is happening in Fukushima and what can be done to FIX it. We need them NOW. The consequences could be the extinction of all life on earth. It is past time to do this. Japan is calling for help and they can not handle it alone.
