"The radioactive core in a reactor at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant appears to have melted through the bottom of its containment vessel (onto) a concrete floor, experts say, raising fears of a major release of radiation at the site." It's already major and increasing.

According to Richard Lahey, former GE boiling-water reactors head of safety research:

"The indications we have, from the reactor to radiation readings and the materials they are seeing, suggest that the core has melted through the bottom of the pressure vessel in unit two, and at least some of it is down on the floor of the drywell. I hope I am wrong, but that is certainly what the evidence is pointing towards."

"The reason we are concerned is that they are detecting water outside the containment area that is highly radioactive and it can only have come from the reactor core." Lahey added that it won't be as bad as Chernobyl. In fact, it's multiples worse from:

-- increasing radiation releases, including deadly plutonium;

-- spreading them catastrophically across the entire Northern Hemisphere, especially over wide parts of Japan;

-- causing permanent contamination; and 

-- potentially killing millions from deadly cancers.
