    Oh definitely. Like I was saying, it would be the last hope... now it's gone. Also thinking about what the collapse could have damaged internally, and what else could have been damaged in the explosion. Radiation levels that high outside of the structure is such bad news. This is so sad.

    People, stay cool. From the Reuters blog:

    Naoto Sekimura, a professor at the University of Tokyo, says "No Chernobyl is possible at a light water reactor. Loss of coolant means a temperature rise, but it also will stop the reaction”
    The explosion is most likely to be the hydrogen that is used to cool the plant.

    Of course Chernobyl cannot happen here, it's a different kind of plant, the Soviet design was bad from word one. What's more likely is a "China Syndrome" Which is the worst case scenario with this type of design. If the core slags and starts to burn... it melts through the containment shell. The type of explosion and fire would not be the same as Chernobyl, again, different design different scenario.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Exactly.

    Passing out at keyboard, I fully expect to wake up to worst case scenario in the morning.

    Japan authorities: TEPCO plant fuel rods may have melted -Jiji | Reuters

    Analysts say a meltdown would not necessarily lead to a major disaster because light-water reactors would not explode even if they overheated.

    I've been watching news wires for a lot of years now. This series of incidents, from the quake to this, is some of the most horrifying stuff I've ever seen. Just terrible.

    Why does the world seem to be getting increasingly ****ed up the closer we get to 2012?
