  •  TEPCO has been sent shielded robots (6+ / 0-)

    capable of navigating rubble. They have also been using a couple of large remote operated vehicles to clear rubble. Unless TEPCO can figure out some way to get the radiation levels down they will be forced to use robots and remote operated vehicles to work in high radiation areas.

    I think the Japanese government has gone as far as politically feasible in upping allowable radiation limits for workers. Even though TEPCO and the Japanese government are joined at the hip I doubt if the politicians will carry their affection to the point of political suicide.
