The problems at Fukushima continue, according to the NYT. The radioactively and thermally hot water is degrading the liners, causing leaks from underground storage containers. into the ground. Leaks have been found in 3 of the 7 containers. TEPCO continues to pour massive amounts of water onto the reactor to prevent further deterioration at the reactor. The site is 1/2 mile from the sea, but water does flow down to the sea. At the start of the disaster, the water from the reactor accident did run into the sea, and traces of radioactive cesium were later found in bluefin tuna caught off the California coast. I do not think that this is due to incompetence on the part of workers, as that notion suggests that there are competent people who could do better. Rather, I think that the complications of nuclear reactor melt downs are not solvable; they are only preventable.
