Japanese Gov. suggests cover up for nuclear disaster.

I could not believe this when I first read it.

TOKYO, March 30, Kyodo

The government is considering applying new measures to prevent the crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant from further spreading radioactive particles, its top spokesman said Wednesday.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano told a news conference that the government and nuclear experts are discussing ”every possibility” to bring the plant under control and that some measures that have been reported by the media are included in their options.

Media reports said that the government and the experts have been studying the feasibility of new steps such as covering reactors of the plant with special cloth to reduce the amount of radioactive particles flying away from the facility and using a big tanker to collect the contaminated water.

Since the March 11 earthquake and ensuing tsunami damaged the nuclear plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co. and the government have been battling to cool its overheating reactors.


There ya go. Throw a tarp over it and maybe people won’t notice.
