Japan's Nuclear Meltdown May Be Worse Than Chernobyl

Breaking News 9:30 PM Pacific March 15, 2011 - “Time Bombs”?

“I think the Unit 4 firefighters were withdrawn because the fuel pools
are drying out. That means high levels of Cesium-137 at the site and
the uranium products will turn into radioactive gasses that can touch skin and be breathed in. This is as bad as, or worse than, Chernobyl.”
- Arnie Gundersen, Nuclear Engineer and Safety Expert, Fairewinds Assoc.

Hole is showing in the wall of Unit # 4 on March 16, 2011,
that has been on fire at Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant, Japan.

8:30 PM Pacific Scott Portzline, Three Mile Island Alert, Pennsylvania:  “The news
that the firefighters have withdrawn from the spent fuel pool #4 attempt to refill it indicates to me that the radioactive levels are so high because the fuel is in fact uncovered - it can catch on fire and burn and be extremely horrific. That fuel is unsheilded, hence the need to pull back the human workers. I just captured this photo (above) from Japanese streaming TV on NHK World news. The report said the spent fuel pool there is on the lower level. But who knows?”
