Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced Tuesday the government plans to invest nearly $500 million in a giant “ice wall” surrounding the ravaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility in a desperate bid to stop dangerous radiation leaks as the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) fails to quell the ballooning crisis and the plant continues to spring new leaks.
Greenpeace was quick to criticize Abe for rushing to restart other nuclear facilities in Japan as the Fukushima crisis continues to deepen.
“[T]he heavy financial cost of a meltdown is inevitably borne by the public, not by the companies that designed, built, and operated the plants,” Greenpeace declared in a previous statement. “None of the world’s 436 nuclear reactors are immune to human errors, natural disasters, or any of the many other serious incidents that could cause a disaster.”

“[Yet] the Japanese government is eagerly pushing to restart reactors, against the will of its people, and without learning true lessons from Fukushima,” the statement adds.
