Michio Kaku: Japan's Possible Nuclear Meltdown

Thousands of residents were evacuated from an area around a nuclear plant in quake-hit Japan after radiation levels rose in the reactor, but there was no word on whether there had actually been a leak.

Underscoring grave concerns about the Fukushima plant some 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the U.S. air force had delivered coolant to avert a rise in the temperature of the facility's nuclear rods.

Tokyo Electric Power Co said pressure inside a reactor at its Fukushima-Daiichi plant rose after the cooling system was knocked out by the earthquake, the largest on record in Japan.

    Google the chernobyl disaster on you tube the BBC showed an hour long docudrama of the reality and cover up of what happened there. This has not yet happened in Japan, but could. My fiance' has worked in a nuclear plant, and has a good friend who worked with her and both have told me that this situation, needs to be sealed off entirely, to avoid a thermonuclear meltdown, which basically occurs when a core overheats, and cannot be cooled. Sound familiar???? They stopped chernobyl with sand and concrete. The worst part is, the people over there have no idea of what is truly going on, and the real threat that existed.... They only have a 15 mile radius that they are evacuating. They need at the least a 100 mi. radius, to protect the people. I thought the US was the worst at covering things up, but knowing what i know from my fiancee', it looks like Japan has topped the list.
