Unsure how to handle – do we have someone who can address technical comments like this, or should we give him the stock “we’re doing what we can” answer?

Currently I have read about the use of seawater for cooling and the contamination. May I suggest that they begin to pump nitrogen into the containment with the water to add much more cooling effect and the nitrogen is a neutron absorbent. After some relative cooling then pump water with a borax solution to kill the neutron activity even more by encapsulation.

The nitrogen gas would become radioactive but nitrogen -17 half life is extremely short (4.3 sec.) and would not pose a air hazard.
