“Nothing like this has ever been attempted”
from Revolution Radio:
South China Morning Post, Oct. 27, 2013:
Nothing remotely similar has been attempted before and while everyone – nuclear experts, government officials, environmental groups and the public – agrees that the rods [in the Unit 4 pool] must be moved to more secure storage, It is feared that any error of judgment could lead to a massive release of radiation into the atmosphere Unit 4 at the plant contains an alarming 10 times as much caesium-137 as was at Chernobyl, experts say.
[A] spokesman for Tepco […] admitted, however, that it was not clear whether any of the rods were damaged or if debris in the pool would complicate the recovery effort.
He’s made even more strident warnings: “Conditions in the unit 4 pool, 100 feet from the ground, are perilous, and if any two of the rods touch it could cause a nuclear reaction that would be uncontrollable [and] would require the evacuation of surrounding areas including Tokyo”
