+ - Japan Suspends Efforts to Prevent Nuclear Meltdown 1

Hugh Pickens writes writes "The Christian Science Monitor reports that Japan has suspended efforts to prevent damaged reactors from melting down at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant as a surge in radiation has made it too dangerous for workers to operate. "The workers cannot carry out even minimal work at the plant now," says chief government spokesman Yuko Edano, referring to workers who had been dousing the reactors with seawater in a frantic effort to cool down their rising temperatures. "Because of the radiation risk, we are on standby.""

  • I see on my submissions page that a story I submitted early this morning titled "Japan Suspends Efforts to Prevent Nuclear Meltdown" has been accepted for posting.

    That story is out of date. At the time I submitted it, it was true, but it is no longer true.

    I don't think you should post that story as it has been overtaken by events and is no longer accurate.
