Here are the latest developments on the Fukushima catastrophe, including quotes from a well-known physicist who is now raising the alarm over “three raging meltdowns” at the Fukushima complex.
• As the Wall Street Journal reports (http://online.wsj.com/article/SB100…), the U.S. government has now admitted that radiation is being found in milk from Washington state. They say it’s “safe” to drink, of course. That’s the U.S. government for you: Irradiated milk is safe, but raw milk is dangerous!
• The battle to save Fukushima is now over, as Japanese officials admit the nuclear power complex must now be abandoned and entombed (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art…). The Dailymail published, “officials said it would mean switching off all power and abandoning attempts to keep the nuclear fuel rods cool.” The problem with that, of course, is that there are already “three raging meltdowns” under way as Dr. Kaku explains (below). If you abandon efforts to cool the fuel rods, then an accelerated meltdown is “inevitable,” says Dr. Kaku.
