Now they will have to build an even bigger "sarcophagus" over the existing cement cover.

Soon it will be many layers of massive cement covers. Too bad there isn't an apt Russian analogy involving snugly fitting boxes or containers of some kind.

KIEV, UKRAINE-Ukrainian officials on Wednesday sought to reassure the public that radiation levels were unaffected at Chornobyl and there was no safety threat after a partial roof collapse at the exploded nuclear power plant.

It's good that they want to learn from their mistakes, but separating a nuclear power plant's major components from each other for ease of viewing doesn't seem like a good decision in this case.

A Ukranian man is out on a walk with his grandson. The little boy turns to him and asks, "Grandfather, is it true that there was a nuclear disaster here many years ago?"
"Yes, child," he says, patting his grandson's head.
"But I heard that there were no consequences at all; is this true too?"
"Yes, child," he says, patting his grandson's other head.
And then they strolled off together, wagging their tails.

The radiation only senses movement. So remain absolutely still.

Jument: Let me ask you a few question:
1) Do you take mass transit?
2) What kind of car(2) do you drive?
3) How large is your home? Do you have A/C?
4) How have you personally modified your purchasing habits to indirectly consume less energy?

Perhaps you are a model human being and have excellent answers to all of these questions. But I bet not.

When coming across someone who supports renewable power:

Rule 1 - question their own personal habits. If they aren't living in a cave or getting calls from Ed Begley Jr. for advice on sustainability, their opinion doesn't matter.

Rule 2 - If the person is really living an ultra-clean & green life, via renewable power - claim that not everyone can live a life like that and it's expensive.

Rule 3 - if they point out anyone can buy into successful community owned renewable energy projects, and show how simple it is to finance improvements with little personal money - simply say it's impossible and it won't work. Then talk about how clean coal and nuclear is the only way forward. Rinse, repeat.

Chernobyl, Schernobyl...

Do what the McClanes do when you visit an old nuclear station - wear leather jackets and jeans.

Vinci and Bouygues, two French construction companies who are contracted to work on building the new confinement, said they had evacuated about 80 workers as a precaution. They had not returned as of Wednesday.

So they...surrendered?

But today's new and modern nuclear power plant designs, citizens, today's designs, will create a veritable utopia in which nuclear energy is clean, cheap and safe.  So cheap that we may not even need to meter it!

it's a turbine housing, nothing hazardous in it.

Yeah but you know there was at least one poor bastard near the site who heard that thing collapse and was like "OH SHIAT!"
