Fukushima nightmare continues

This must be the greatest nightmare imaginable. Click the link and look at the photo of endless, giant water tanks filled to the brim with radioactive water in Fukushima.

They need to keep pumping water over the nuclear material, which makes the water so contaminated that they can't release it. So it just builds and builds and...

They can't let it drain into the ocean. Really, there's nowhere sensible to put it, nowhere at all. And all the while, they can hardly keep up with the flow.

This won't end well. (Not that it began well.)
