Battle to control Fukushima has just ‘stored up’ dangers – Asia – World – The Independent

  • The rush to bring the plant under control is storing up complex problems, according to Tomohiko Suzuki, who spent a month working at the plant during the summer and has released a book this week about his experiences
  • “The question is, can they maintain this temperature for years and years? I believe the problems there are just starting”
  • Nuclear experts say the state of the molten fuel is still uncertain, with some speculating that the government is preparing to build a giant concrete “nappy” underneath the complex to stop radioactive substances leaking into the ground
