    Almost 4 weeks later and the engineers and scientists are still guessing as to what is going on inside those buildings. They have no idea.

    They plugged one leak but don't know if there are more.

    The workers there expect to die within weeks, months, or by the end of the year from the radiation.

    The only thing they can do is pump water to try to keep the reactors and spent fuel cool and the radioactive water is just pooling all around and they have nowhere to put the radioactive water. So, the "good news" is they stopped the leak, the "bad" news is that they have no place to put the radioactive pooled water other than dumping it in the ocean where it was leaking in the first place.

    What's their gameplan: just pump water to try to keep it cool? For how long: months, years?

    It was a colossal mistake to have nuclear power plants in an earthquake zone like Japan.

    I noted this from the beginning. I disagree with putting anything like this in places that offer extreme conditions. Especially dual threats. Even worse when one of those dual threats can trigger the other. (earthquake triggering a tsunami) If anything, they should have put it further in land where tsunami effects weren't possible.
