Japan nuclear plant: Just 48 hours to avoid ‘another Chernobyl’
If anybody had any plausible idea how to stop the cores from melting down (at least on 4 and 6 reactors), they would have done it already. I have very little doubt that by the weekend, Chernobyl will look like a “best case” scenario.
This is scary, scary stuff. For the love of Mike, people: they have resorted to dumping water from helicopters on the spent fuel rods. That doesn’t even work well on forest fires.
