The Reddit page to ask him a question is highly sanitized. Any question for the top scientist on the top scientific question of the day, “How to we save Earth from Fukushima radiation?”, get tossed.

AI and other tools could have been a big help in the beginning. Linking many computers together to help with climate study has been a help in that field but was never done for this problem.
People worldwide are concerned.
Also, at this point, is it too late to stop the chain-reactions there?
