Errors cast doubt on Japan's cleanup of nuclear accident site
from The New York Times
Thousands of workers and a small fleet of cranes are preparing for one of the latest efforts to avoid a deepening environmental disaster that has China and other neighbors increasingly worried: removing spent fuel rods from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant No. 4 reactor building and storing them in a safer place. The government announced recently that it would spend $500 million on new steps to stabilize the plant, including an even bigger project: the construction of a frozen wall to block a flood of groundwater into the contaminated buildings.
