    Green Road blog hysteria notwithstanding, Japan is the only country in history (thank God) to survive two nuclear bombs and they will no doubt get this situation under control.

    Yeah this is some serious shit.

    One little tremor there...

    I read somewhere that Japan might have been using the site to make nuclear weapons because you typically don't find that much plutonium otherwise. I'm not an expert and would be interested to hear more

    Which is why they have been begging for help from us and the UN and estimate it will take at least ten years to move all those rods...because they have it entirely undercontrol by virtue of having been nuked twice already in the past.


    Did I leave something out?

    Alaska, Westgern Canada, the West Coast areas are the ones most vulnerable due to wind and ocean currents, as I understand it.

    Dont know about Hawai.

    Thank you GE for those marvelous reactors that you took shortcuts on with safety features so bad that the top four engineers on the design resigned in protest.

    May you be sued into extinction.

    Now Jim, you have to understand Whitey's problems. Two brain cells and one of them malfunctioning. Doesn't leave much.

    utter and total bullshit, unless of course, there is some magical method of divinding such radiation equally among ever person on the planet, and then applying said dose in one shot, simultaneously.

    Bilge. What does it mean for reactor #4 to "affect" the common pool? Virtually nothing. It certainly doesn't mean that all the fuel in the spent fuel rods will be released into the air. Even if all the water drained out of the pool, that isn't likely to happen. This is spent fuel. Most of it is at room temperature. the chances of it vaporizing are virtually nil. This is just anti-nuke hysteria.
