(NaturalNews) In a demonstration of the company's shocking ignorance concerning the nature of radioactive particles, the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has announced that it is going to place large polyester domes -- yes, you read that right -- around the damaged reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in an alleged attempt to help contain radioactive particles. The polyester domes will begin appearing next month, and all are expected to be in place by the end of the year, say reports.

The TEPCO announcement, of course, is an insult to the intelligence of billions of people worldwide that understand that a thin layer of polyester fabric will do absolutely nothing to contain radioactive particles. Nevertheless, the company is moving forward with its plan to tent the facility, which also happens to conveniently hide from the public the true condition of the reactors behind a layer of opaque plastic material (http://www.myfoxny.com/dpps/news/japan-nucle...).

The announcement comes just one day after TEPCO announced that the Reactor 1 cooling pools are dry, and that its nuclear fuel rods have melted (http://www.naturalnews.com/032378_nuclear_me...). So while most of the world falsely believes that the Fukushima crisis is over, TEPCO has quietly admitted that it basically lied about the dire condition of the plant, and that it now plans to cover up the facility with plastic tents.

TEPCO still insists, however, that things are under control, and that the constant stream of poured water -- despite the admitted cracks and holes in Reactor 1 -- is helping to cool other fuel rods and prevent additional meltdowns. But others question the legitimacy of these claims, especially considering TEPCO dismal record of dishonesty in this ongoing saga.

"The reactors can NEVER be placed in 'cold shutdown' because the cores are partially melted together. We are talking about hundreds of tons of fissile material inside reinforced concrete containment vessels," wrote Tom Burnett in a recent Hawaii News Daily piece. "The containment vessels are cracked. They are releasing radiation. Fission excursions are still occurring and no one can go inside those containments for hundreds of years -- even if they could get to the fuel" (http://hawaiinewsdaily.com/2011/05/will-fuku...).

Meanwhile, the Japanese government has announced it will provide financial aid to TEPCO in order to prevent the company from going bankrupt (http://www.businessweek.com/news/2011-05-13/...).
