TEPCO to use large artificial floating island to store radioactive water

Quote:Levels of radioactive materials have been skyrocketing in the sea near the nuclear power plant hit by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, fanning concerns about the expansion of sea contamination and the impact on fishery products.

Earlier in the day, the government and the plant operator were trying to remove radioactive water from inside the buildings at the plant -- another clog in restoring the station's crippled cooling functions.

Removal of contaminated water is necessary to reduce the risk to workers being exposed to radioactive substances as it hinders efforts to restore the cooling functions, which are crucial to overcome the crisis.

TEPCO is considering using a large artificial floating island, a so-called ''megafloat,'' to store the tainted water, the agency said, while it will also inject nitrogen into the containment vessels of the plant's reactors to help prevent the risk of more hydrogen explosions.

The megafloat will be provided by the city of Shizuoka.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?

They're going to turn it into a Zombie radioactive health spa cruise ship.

Hollywood, I've copyrighted the above idea, so I expect to be paid if you use the idea for a movie.gaah.gif

BTW, if you like zombie flicks, there is a series on AMC called The Walking Dead that is pretty damn good so far. Season two should be starting soon. We are watching them through Netflix, but I think you can watch them online at the official site.

We were there from day one Kreeper hi5.gif watched the entire first season weekly. It was our favorite show.
That and V are the only series we watch, if not for those two and hockey, we'd never watch tv.
