According to Dr. Tom Burnett:
"Fukushima is going to dwarf Chernobyl. (Its) reactions are getting worse. I suspect three nuclear piles are in meltdown....When the molten mass (reaches) the water table, (it) will explode (releasing) more radioactive particulate matter. The concrete will melt and the problem will get worse."
It'll continue for months. The only solution is bad; namely, "detonat(ing) a 10 kiloton fission device inside each reactor containment vessel and hope to vaporize the cores."
Nuclear core meltdowns are self-sustaining. Only halting the reaction can stop them. That "require(s) a nuclear weapon....in each containment vessel....(b)ut it will be messy."
On March 30, New York Times writer David Jolly headlined, "High Radiation Levels Found in Seawater Near Nuclear Plant," saying:
Seawater "about 300 yards from the (site contained) iodine-131 at 3,355 times the safety standard, the highest levels reported so far." Each day, they're rising and spreading hazardous contamination. Yet Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency's (NISA) Hidehiko Nishiyama claims public health isn't threatened, perhaps waiting for corpses for proof.
"In a separate development, smoke was seen rising from a second (TEPCO Daini nuclear plant) about six miles south of" Daiichi. As expected, NISA and TEPCO officials downplayed it, perhaps again concealing the worst.
