Japanese government taking more action, but it’s not enough

It was reported last week that the Fukushima leaks are much worse than TEPCO had been reporting.  The contaminated water is now seeping into the underground water levels and making its way to the Pacific ocean.  I said the Japanese government needed to do more and they are.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the government was working on a plan, estimated around $470 million, to contain the leaking water in the plant area. There plan is to freeze the ground under the containers that are holding the water to make sure anything that leaks into the ground won’t be able to spread and reach to the ocean (although a lot already has).  Abe sounds like a smart guy, but I just wonder what has taken so long for them to take a big step like this is containing the leaks.  Why not reach out the world community?

It was mentioned the Governor of Tokyo still says Tokyo is safe and shouldn’t not take away from them trying to land the Olympics.  I think they need to wake up and focus everything on the crisis at hand and not worry about sporting events.
