    Read up on Chernobyl, it was far worse than just a meltdown, especially read about it being a different kind of reactor, with no real containment system.

    I could be wrong but I am pretty sure that if a coal power plant and a nuclear power plant explode, the blown up coal power plant can still be cleaned up and a new one rebuilt.

    It is going to take years to recover from this and Japan will need all the help they can get.

    They are now one of our beat allies and we need to do what ever we can to help.

    Obama make comments yesterday and it was the first time I didn't have a bad thing to say about it.

    Nuclear plants built under western standards cannot explode, not the nuclear fuel anyway. I think you will find that the explosions in Japan were due to hydrogen buildup. A meltdown can keep a nuke plant from getting rebuilt and put back on line. How many times has that happened in the USA? The media is not the best place to get technical info. A few years back the Phoenix papers reported an explosion that killed several people at the 4 corners plant. The writer called it a nuclear plant. It is a coal fired plant....

    No, it wouldn't be anything like Chernobyl.

    Russia's infrastructure hadn't taken the hit that Japan's has, in this instance, either.

    Is it just where the nuclear power plant was or is it a much wider area that can not be rebuilt on after a meltdown?
