A nuclear crisis at the quake-hit Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant deepened Tuesday as fresh explosions occurred at the site and its operator said water in a pool storing spent nuclear fuel rods may be boiling, an ominous sign for the release of high-level radioactive materials from the fuel.

This is a level 7 event. If anything, it will exceed Chernobyl - 6 plants plus spent rods. Governments don't like admitting to such things, so it may be anywhere from hours to weeks for the official word to come down, but we have just witnessed the reality of The China Syndrome.
I can confirm what you are saying. I was in contact with my friends in Japan. They were literally weeping while I was talking to them. The situation at the plant is out of control. Workers are leaving their posts because of fear of the radiation. At this point the site is just about lost, all attempts to cool the reactors is failing. The brave men still there are losing the battle. They are not saying officially yet but the entire site will have to be abandoned. They will have to seal it off and nobody will be able to live around that area for hundreds of years. My friends are preparing to leave Japan now, they are going to fly to LA to stay with family.

Seriously? You're depending on stock traders to understand intricate nuclear physics?
I'll stick with TheRedneck for my warnings. He seems to be the most in the know here. Nothing he has said so far has been wrong. I think we're pretty on top of the crisis----without checking the stock markets, LOL.

Just wondering if this snow could be something else, given the nuclear leaks.. anybody , ideas?
This might happen but there is no way it happened yet!!!! if this was the case the Stock market would be down 2000 points. I know it could be bad, I'm not denying it. But to say its happening now,, no way!!! The guys trading stocks will show you what's up..
