  1. Confusion in a Crisis: Just How High are Japan's Radiation Risks?
    By BILL POWELL / TOKYO Thursday, Mar. 17, 201

    . At a hearing in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, chairman of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Gregory Jaczko, called radiation levels at one of the plant's units "extremely high." He added that "for a comparable situation in the United States we would recommend evacuation for a much larger radius than is currently being provided in Japan."

    And he said that his information suggested that there was no water left in the pool containing spent fuel rods in reactor Unit 4, an assertion which if true makes a significant release of radioactive gases from the burning fuel rods stored there much more likely.

    The Japanese nuclear regulatory agency, however, has acknowledged that it doesn't know whether there is water left in the pool or not. Spokesman Yoshitaka Nagayama told reporters: "Because we have been unable to go the scene, we cannot confirm whether there is water left or not in the spent fuel pool at reactor No. 4."

    . Japanese government spokesman Shikata meanwhile disputed reports that there is any "panic" in Tokyo, adding: "We do not believe the situation in Fukushima poses any risks for people in Tokyo."

    Even people outside the evacuation zone around the plant in Fukushima are voting with their feet; some families from Fukushima have already shown up in Tsuruoka, about 75 miles to the west, residents there say.

    Many Japanese were jarred when Kan acknowledged on Tuesday that there was a high risk that radiation levels around the plant would rise. He was right, but until then there hadn't been much talk of the risks surrounding the stricken reactor from public officials. The Prime Minister also publicly berated TEPCO executives on Tuesday for keeping him in the dark about key events at Fukushima Daiichi. "Although the explosion [at reactor 3] was being covered on TV networks, it wasn't reported to the Prime Minister's Office for about an hour. What's going on here?," he asked. That unquestionably prompted some Japanese to wonder just how good the information was that they were getting. Hiroko Kano, a Tokyo housewife, was planning on delivering food and water to elderly friends who live near Sendai. She has delayed the trip. "I'm just not sure I'm trusting what I'm hearing from the government."
    The conflicting information about the water levels in the pool storing the spent fuel rods in reactor Unit 4 is emblematic of the confusion the nuclear crisis has engendered. For at least two days prior to TEPCO's statement on Thursday that it was unclear whether there was any water left in the storage pool, international nuclear scientists
    had pointed to this issue as a potential danger. Plant operator TEPCO must have known, experts say, that the water was boiling and being turned into steam by the red-hot fuel rods, thus increasing the exposure of those rods to the air. The same risks, the Union of Concerned Scientists pointed out, exist in reactors 5 and 6, which are also offline and both store spent fuel rods. But it was not until Thursday — after U.S. nuclear regulator Jaczko's jarring statement about the current state of reactor Unit 4 — that TEPCO officials publicly addressed the issue of water levels in the storage pools, and did so in a way that did little to clarify the situation.

  7. The radiation level in Japan has rose to level 5, with 7 the highest.
    Japan is the only nation to have been bombed by nuclear weapons.
    Now they once again face a nuclear catastrophe that can be far worse, one that is much stronger and can literally destroy this nation's already faltering economy.
    Narita Airport is a site of exodus. Tourism's gone. The Utility industry a nightmare; stores, offices, jobs have dissipated. The nuclear nightmare caused by cutting corners and poor design is a dragon devouring all in sight. I salute the Japanese people for their bravery, team spirit, and warmth to their neighbors, rich or poor. They are role models for the world.
