Don't know 'bout you, but I'm concerned...

(NaturalNews) The battle to save the Fukushima nuclear power plant now appears lost as the radioactive core from Reactor No. 2 has melted through the containment vessel and dropped into the concrete basement of the reactor structure. This is "raising fears of a major release of radiation at the site," reports The Guardian, which broke the story ( A former General Electric nuclear expert told The Guardian that Japan appears to have "lost the race" to save the reactor.

The only feasible interpretation from this analysis is that radiation emissions from Fukushima could suddenly become much greater. It is also now obvious that the radioactive fallout from Fukushima will last for decades, if not centuries.

Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan last night admitted the situation at Fukushima remains "unpredictable." Meanwhile, the presence of plutonium in soil samples is proof that the nuclear fuel rods have been compromised and are releasing material into the open atmosphere. (

But don't worry (and don't prepare)

Yeah, nuclear power is a grand idea. Lets build more. It reminds me of the hospital. Oh, the new cart washers and automated instrument washers are SO much better now all this new technology. They will surpass everything. But, after 1 year They are all junk. needing repairs on a daily basis. The nuck plants are SO much better now. BALONEY!!
