David Webb, Chief Executive Officer of Origin Investments AB (Sweden): I think we should keep in mind that TEPCO declared plants 1, 2 and 3 to be in cold shut-down. And of course we now know that was not the case. Other people were pointing out that the cores had melted down through the facility. We now know that is the case. [...]

[...] the most dangerous thing is the cooling pool of Unit 4. Now it is terribly dangerous because the entire hot core of reactor 4 had been removed and put in this cooling pool shortly before the tsunami. [...]

The entire area is weakened and there is a great risk of an aftershock. Now this pool contains something on the order of 400 kg of hot plutonium. So, the thing that people should be aware of is that TEPCO is going to begin attempting to remove these rods [...]

The media coverage of the situation has been almost non-existent. The public must become engaged and the governments must become engaged because this is a global threat. [...]

This is perhaps the greatest threat humanity has ever faced. [...] the measures that the Japanese government is discussing at this point are not sufficient, I believe. Other governments must become engaged in this.
