[David McIntyre, Mar. 12, 2011:] Just saw an incoherent discussion on cnn by Bill Nye the science guy who apparently knows zilcho about reactors and an idiot weatherman who said Hydrogen explosion? Pfft. I’m not buying it.
His boss sent back the following reply, correcting the staffer and explaining plans to ask the Obama administration to help blunt critical news coverage.
[Eliot Brenner, Mar. 12, 2011:] There is a good chance it was a hydrogen explosion that took the roof off that building, though we are not saying that publicly.

FOIA Nuclear Regulatory Commission (pdf), March 12, 2011: Fukushima Daiichi Unit 1- explosion noted at site. Substructure visible which suggests blowout panels. Status of drywell, level, pressure, and power still unknown. CIA suggested hydrogen explosion, no evidence to support.
