ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issues of lack of electricity and presence of contaminated water at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan. According to the author, the two factors are hampering efforts to restart the cooling system at the plant. Suggested solutions to the problem are presented including the punching of holes on the building roof to provide light, the use of explosion-proof lamps, and the pumping of radioactive water into an empty oil tanker. The author also recommends Japanese authorities in government and in the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), to review the suggestions and evaluate their feasibility.
