Michio Kaku: Fukushima Is A ‘Ticking Time Bomb’

From Democracy Now!

The Japanese government is trying to calm fears about radiation levels and food safety in the region around the heavily damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power facility, even as it has raised the severity rating of the crisis to the highest possible level. “Radiation is continuing to leak out of the reactors. The situation is not stable at all,” says Dr. Michio Kaku, professor of theoretical physics at the City University of New York and the City College of New York. “The slightest disturbance could set off a full-scale meltdown at three nuclear power stations, far beyond what we saw at Chernobyl.”

  3. This is obviously going to have massive repercussions, not only for Japan, but it’ll impact on the rest of the world; environmentally and economically. Nuclear power, is it really the answer? Then again, no-one expects a 9.0 earthquake to strike your country’s power plants.

    This situation is going to get a lot worse before it gets any better.

      Oh no, you did not just play the “Massive Disaster No One Can Plan For” card. I tried that on this site and got 500 replies from druids telling me they were casting curses on me.
