Nautilus: "Possible need for int. effort to assist Japan with reactors, spent fuel ponds, meltdowns, & radioactive contamination"

From Nautilus Institute for Security & Sustainability - Northeast Asia Peace & Security Network Special Report
“After the Deluge: Short and Medium-term Impacts of the Reactor Damage Caused by the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami”
March 17, 2011

The Nautilus Institute released this report as a rapid response evaluation of the implications of the March 11, 2011 earthquake and consequent tsunami off the northeast coast of Japan, focusing on Japan’s electricity system, its energy security and the future of the nuclear power plants located in the earthquake- and tsunami-affected regions...

Section 6 evaluates the stabilization and recovery of the hardest hit sites, at Fukushima 2 reactor complex. It notes the possible need for a massive international effort, perhaps mandated by the UN Security Council, to assist Japan in the huge task of dealing with multiple reactors and spent fuel ponds affected by the earthquake, explosions, meltdowns, and radioactive contamination
