“There is talk of an apocalypse and I think the word is particularly well chosen,” he said in remarks to the European Parliament. “Practically everything is out of control,” he added. “I cannot exclude the worst in the hours and days to come.”
Dangerous levels of radiation leaking from a crippled nuclear plant forced Japan to order 140,000 people to seal themselves indoors Tuesday after an explosion and a fire dramatically escalated the crisis spawned by a deadly tsunami. In a nationally televised statement, Prime Minister Naoto Kan said radiation had spread from the four stricken reactors of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant along Japan’s northeastern coast. Japanese officials told the International Atomic Energy Agency that the reactor fire was in a fuel storage pond — an area where used nuclear fuel is kept cool — and that “radioactivity is being released directly into the atmosphere.”
Long after the fire was extinguished, a Japanese official said the pool might still be boiling, though the reported levels of radiation had dropped dramatically by the end of the day. China began evacuating its citizens on Tuesday from the worst affected areas, making it the first foreign government to pull its people from the country.
An Apocalypse (Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apokálypsis; "lifting of the veil" or "revelation") is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. the veil to be lifted.
The term also can refer to the eschatological final battle, the Armageddon, and the idea of an end of the world. In Christianity The Apocalypse of John (Greek Ἀποκάλυψις Ἰωάννου) is the Book of Revelation, the last book of the Christian Bible.

Making it known that all the world is falling
apart gives rise to the need of a 1 new world
It's a publicity stunt (set-up) for the
solution aspect to fix the crisis.
