Yet, as the crisis continues to spiral, Japanese authorities recently announced plans to spend nearly $500 million in public money to build a giant ‘wall of ice’ surrounding the plant. Critics say this is just another example of how the public is being forced to pay for TEPCO’s mishandling of the disaster.

Experts predict construction of the proposed barrier will take at least 2 years to complete, and there is no evidence that this will bring a long-term solution to the leaks of contaminated water, which is estimated at 300 tons per day.

Abe’s new statements also appear to be an attempt to assure the public and Olympic committee after Kazuhiko Yamashita, an executive-level fellow for TEPCO, publicly admitted last week, “I’m sorry, but we consider the situation not under control.”
