Japan: The Solution to the Blown Reactors - The Chernobyl Option

Dr. Michio Kaku’s Recommendations to the Prime Minister:

“If I had the ear of the Prime Minister, I would recommend the “Chernobyl Option.”

■ Put the Japanese Air Force on alert
■ Assemble a huge fleet of helicopters. Put shielding underneath them.
■ Accumulate enough sand, boric acid, and concrete to smother these reactors, to entomb them forever.
This is what the Soviets did in 1986, calling out the Red Air Force and sandbagging the reactor with over 5,000 tons of concrete and sand.”

This is the right idea. The reactors must be buried and sealed to stop more radiological material from escaping. The big problem, as outlined by Mike Rivero at WRH.com, is that radiological material is escaping into the ground water that runs off into the Pacific. Perhaps they can dig down around it and entomb the thing in three dimensions.
