"...the leak has been stopped by use of a chemical plastic to stop leaks..."

WOO-HOO!!!

Good for Japanese know-how and innovation!

If they were looking for some kind of a slimy goo to shove in the hole though they should have just stuffed it with Jeff Immelt...

You'd better keep your guard up. He'll probably try to strong-arm the Japanese government into buying four more of his GE reactors to replace the four that were destroyed.

Japan can do better itself...
