I agree that this is a horrible situation which further ruins our oceans and food supplies. At the moment over 80% of fish shouldn't be eaten frequently and some varieties shouldn't be consumed at all! When there are no immediate clean-up projects to monitor or evil villains to display before the media , the story gets swept under the rug. Also, many people choose to live in denial. Behind the scenes, there are activists calling for immediate clean-up (GreenAction.org) and asking for a ban on nuclear reactors. The news has just fallen away from the mainstream media. No surprise there!
Tepco will FINALLY begin early stages of cleanup w/ plans to robotically remove the spent fuel rods, then others in a trial run this week. The pressure is on to call for an international task force to help. Estimated cost of cleanup is 300 billion.
