The Japanese government are finally moving on with plans to create an ice wall at Fukushima. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced a $470 million plan to contain the leaking radioactive water at the nuclear power plant. The ice wall will be built underground. The worst part is? Taxpayers are going to foo the bill.

There's up to 400 tons of radioactive groundwater leaking out to sea every day, and the situation required "radical measures" after TEPCO's "haphazard" handling of the problem. The ice wall involves pumping coolant through underground pipes to freeze the soil around the reactor buildings. Then, workers will remove the radionuclides from the contaminated water on site.
