(Video & ideas 2017 update to this article)
This is an extinction level event, unless we fix it now. The situation is already harming life on earth and our failure to sufficiently address it is resulting in catastrophic consequences. The only hope we have to fix this situation is pooling our resources and working together in a logical fashion.
We are at a historic convergence of tools that can help us implement an effective solution. Since the problem from TEPCO’s Fukushima nuclear plant fallout is excess radiation, the solution is to put ample radiation shields around it, 360 degrees, above and below, entombing the damaged buildings like what was built at Chernobyl, only more durable with a greater reach.
Simultaneously, since increased radiation exposure increases cancer and other illness rates, we need to combat the health effects we know are here, and still coming, as a result of chronic, increased radiation exposure.
The tools we have to balance this situation are, like ancient Babylon, biblical in scope; computers, construction grade 3D Printing, strong barrier building materials, advanced robotics, survival instinct, etc. For example, the technique of "Contour Crafting," an industrial application for 3D printing, can print a house in 24 hours. Shielded, remotely controlled robots and drones could handle the detail and maintenance work.
Here’s some ideas (not in any particular order) on how we can both entomb Fukushima and deal with the health issues that come from the increased radiation exposure.

as a solution to Fukushima
This construction technique builds on large/huge mobile construction gantries with suspended 3D / 4D 5D printers that build/print around the areas that are radiating...the buildings and the tanks too. Enclose the pools used to hold the contaminated cooling waters too. Printed encasement layers could include:
Layer E - Magnetic - Like NASA magnetic shielding for space travel survival as a way to reduce indoor nuclear radiation exposure levels
To either build new buildings or build shells around all other existing structures, building and securing with radical weather and other climate change factors, we must utilize new age printing (3D, 4D. 5D and beyond.) The video below is a quick animation of the contour crafting building technique that can use hemp as a raw resource material. It is a technique very much like the old dot matrix printers of placing materials where required to make an object. when the jump to laser based printing is complete, structures can be built much faster.
Print the entombment in scientifically calculated and configured depths with rounded edges to allow winds and water to go around the structure rather than leave it vulnerable to wear and tear, especially from extreme weather, earthquake and flood conditions.
Since 3D printing prints with mass, it is possible for us to add other things and concepts to the printing recipe.
For example, I asked the noted scientist, activist and friend David Crockett Williams 'is there a way to re-design a Faraday cage to contain the radiation like the cage does with electricity and what could we add to the entombment mixture to make it more radiation absorbent?.
"Well, as far as I know the properties of the radioactivity radiation are such that the radiation is not effected by electromagnetism to where the faraday cage can shield such radiation electromagnetically.
But there is some property of boron or borates like tetrasodium borate like they use for air drops of fire repellent, but that "quenches" radioactivity.
Like if you added borate to cement to increase its effectiveness in shielding radiation. Radioactivity radiation needs a thicker medium than a layer of wires like the faraday cage.
Water actually absorbs such radiation pretty well and they use that in the fuel pools not only to cool the fuel rods but to absorb their radiation by the water molecules.
I suspect it would only take about 10-20 feet of some kind of borate jello to absorb all the radioactivity from being transmitted, but never really studied the best options, or what they finally did and are still doing to maintain safeguards at Chernobyl."
This is why the world needs to work together, to come up with the best ideas and implement them, with the web it's not that difficult to do. We just need the will. [Asking Williams to chair a team of scientists to kick around on line how to fix Fukushima].
Energy: Power the plant, water pools construction and maintenance with dual free energy systems, i.e. magnetic, solar and/or hydro. Use shielded, wire commanded and power delivered systems for heavy earth moving equipment and robots for maintenance tasks.

4. RETROFIT! Fortify residential and commercial buildings with radiation reducing shells/structures built with rounded edges to better combat weather damage. Finance animal heroes to protect wildlife from increased radiation exposure. Offer free science educational programs to encourage good ideas in solving this problem. Factor in radiation testing in food preparation.

HEMP FOR VICTORY!
Founder and Curator, USA Hemp Museum
Vol. I - A GLOBAL WARMING SOLUTION.
Hemp is a biomass champion as explained in H4VAGWS. Learn why we must use hemp now to help fix our environment. Hemp is a needed crop that is easily renewable, pulls excess CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows and has a six foot root system that aerates soil.
Vol. II -: THE WONDER HERB
Medical marijuana has been used as effective medicine during at least the last 5,000 years. This book is a collection of papers and recipes for incorporating medical grade cannabis leaves, buds and oils into your health and/or healing program. We should all be on medical cannabis.
Vol. V - THE TRILLION DOLLAR CROP
Hemp is already America’s #1 cash crop. The fastest way to heal the economy is by stopping the drug war and re-starting a United Nations based Hemp For Victory program. Learn how hemp is an agriculturally based economic powerhouse of raw material.
