‘Another big earthquake or tsunami could send Fukushima Daiichi’s fragile reactor buildings tumbling down, resulting in “an even greater release of radiation than the initial accident,” Mr. Wyden warned in a Monday letter to Japanese Ambassador to the U.S. Ichiro Fujisaki.
” It is no exaggeration to say that the fate of Japan and the whole world depends on No. 4 reactor,” Murata said in a recent letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in which he urged him to back efforts to address the problem.”
The above quote scares me. The whole story terrifies me. For those who do not want to click on the CTV link here is the bottom line. An earthquake of 7.0 or greater could cause No. 4 reactor to break apart and expose a lot of nuclear fuel to the atmosphere. Worst case scenario is that all life, everywhere, dies… due to radiation poisoning.
