After I vented (pardon the pun) about TEPCO’s “hey Ma, we found the crack!” photo, one of my readers did a little rant on this, saying:
How about the one in that series of the guy spraying green colored superglue on the grass near the plant???? This problem is SO much bigger than we are. We got tricked by the physicists into thinking that just because we COULD use nuclear energy.. that it was somehow a good idea, but we’re in WAY over our heads and now it’s so obvious.
Yeah, plutonium-fighting superglue.
(photo: TEPCO caption: In this Friday, April 1, 2011, photo released by Tokyo Electric Power Co., workers for the company experimentally spray adhesive synthetic resin over the ground at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant in Okumamachi, northeastern Japan. TEPCO expects the resin spraying to prevent dust exposed to radiation materials from spreading out of the premises.
