Ever wonder what happened to Fukushima Storage Unit #4? You remember,
the one filled with 1,500 wet stored and combustible fuel rods that threaten a total of ~134 million curies of radioactive cesium 137 and, at least as of last April, seemed to be in maybe not such great shape
) This August, TEPCO
released a comprehensive and easily understandable report on the condition of the structure as well as measures being done to both reinforce it against likely earthquakes and ultimately remove the fuel rods, which are still hot enough to require wet storage elsewhere (PDF)
. On the other hand, Kohei Murata, the former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland who
had the attention of the world during the crisis
remains both unimpressed and eschatological.
