A week-and-a-half into the Fukushima nuclear disaster, this is what is happening:
1. There are 4 reactors in various stages of collapse, releasing untold amount of dangerous radiation. Two more reactors may also be at risk.
2. The public generally has not been told that, in addition, there are 40 years of spent fuel rods on this already contaminated site. See:
3. Other fuel rods are fully exposed (meaning, unknown amounts of release of radiation) because they are no longer covered with the necessary 45-feet of water.
4. Last week the US refused to post online whatever radiation levels they were monitoring as radiation hits the West Coast and comes East. Then there were several reports that their monitors [all of them?] went off line, or crashed. It is doubtful that any official will report the truth. See:
The lies, criminality, and cover-up continue. This is how a totally broken system “works.” See:

Are their any other wildcard solutions?
I don't want to get the feeling that nobody really knows what they are doing but that is the impression that I'm starting to get. It seems like the people in charge are dinking around instead of coming up with an end game solution.
Though I guess no one ever expects a meltdown so there is no game plan for a worst case scenario.
Humanity decided to gamble with nuclear power and it looks like they lost.
Once that is done you have pretty much guaranteed disaster.
I really wish we could post the animated actions, slowed to one billionth of a second to show the action of the protons as they intermingle with the nucleus of the atom.
It is utterly amazing. This is where gravity comes from.
Now many people will speculate as Einstien did and as I do, but it is true, how else would anything stay together.
Intermingling of the protons is the binding agent of all things, that is why like molecules work together and stay together.
A good example to start with is the Hydrogen atom, which has only one proton, it is lonely and needs another proton to balance itself out
exchanging itself with oxygen (8 protons) starts the process to make water
equal number of protons make elements more stable, they don't really need to be equal in number but it works better that way.
No, it is theorised that gravity is caused by the graviton, a fundamental particle, smaller than a proton.

The breakdown of the protons is what should concern the Japanese authorities. If this mass gets going, which I believe it already has, it is going to suck.
