TEPCO defends Fukushima ‘ice wall,’ but it is still too porous

As reported by the Asahi Shimbun.

The so-called "ice wall" has already cost $322 million.

The article reports:

It costs more than 1 billion yen [$9.5 million] a year in electricity fees to keep the wall frozen.

Despite these steep subsidies to Tokyo Electric by the public for its recovery operations from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear catastrophe it caused, the ice wall is only partially effective, if that!
