    Have they considered the use of a large trailing suction hopper dredge with bow broadcast station? There is a waterfront area at the plant. These dredges can deliver massive amounts of water at long distances.

    I am not for sure the distance that the neclear plant is from the water's edge. I think that they should try fire boats. They can shoot the water several hundred feet and don't have to move to get it. Just an idea!

    Where are the teams of guys with the lead lined suits to go in and investigate and get some control of this matter? Get me a suit and I will go in!
    Lets go in and save this thing! It can be done!

    Very Honorable people are getting burned... Drop some snow and a bit of salt water to make it flow soon before we loose a lot of brave Japanise people. Snow is more available than food or gas to run the cars and guess what. It is free right now....

    Mr. Cooper doing excellent job! Arn't you guys worried about exposure to radiation? Admire all these workers who are right in the centre of nuclear plant to prevent further disaster, risking their health and lives!! They deserve some kind of recognition! Our prayers are with you all and all the people of Japan, here from Canada.

    Helecopters with snow and salt water bags. Do it. See the snow on the mountains in Japan. Snow and salt water bags will drop down straighter than the water mist they have been using. I dont think it all melted yet. Da...

    Somebody needs to ask the Japanese Prime Minister and the Tipco officials if they would be comfortable having their families in the 12-19 mile exclusion zone. I'm willing to bet they are far beyond the US 50 mile evacuation zone. Somebody needs to break through the Japanese pride barrier there are peoples lives at stake.

    being japan his a highly robotic nation and very resourceful in robotics Why are they not sending robots in to the reactor areas to access the damage and drag a hose to the pools so water can be pumped into them? there was a segment on the show a few days back showing a robot going up stairs etc surely a robot could perform these task and get the much needed data to find all the issues

    Robots could be the answer to help stop this melt down. Was watching about the danger to employees and if they used a fire hose to fill the cooling tanks, then he would get a fatal dose of radiation. Why do they not use remote control robots to do this dangerous work. This is Japan we are talking about, king of the robots "know" so lets use remote control Robots to do the work.
