Quickly this was the oldest article I found, from July 2007. Ironically an uranium dealer site. It seems the question mark in the title should be deleted. Who knows that sea level will not rise the 10 meters some time the next few thousand years, the amount 3 reactors are above sea level? How many meters will be disastrous?
If a new sarcophagus in Chernobyl costs billions, what about Fukushima? Will it be possible to fight rising ground water? To build a new sarcophagus under water? What if needed High Tech solutions go missing by the upcoming fossil fuel crisis or a possible new financial crisis? Who cares (what happens) when we are gone? If radioactivity goes into the sea, it will no more be locally like in Chernobyl.
Let’s hope Tepco’s engineers are more intelligent as I am…
