Nuclear expect Arnie Gundersen said:
Fukushima "(r)adiation is leaking every day now, both liquid into the ocean and also airborne. When you see those clouds of smoke coming out of the unit, that's not (ordinary) steam, that's radioactive steam. So, they're releasing radioactivity as an airborne, and also, probably more important right now is Unit 2. The reactor has a hole in it, and the containment has a hole in it. So they're pouring water in the top, and it's running out of the bottom. And that's what's causing all of the enormous amount of high-level radioactive waste" they can't stop.
David Rainoshek had a different view headlined, "We Are All Fukushima: An Integral Perspective on the Meanings and Promises of Disaster," accessed through the following link:
Despite an unprecedented worsening disaster, government and industry officials say "we should not be concerned." However, according to Dr. John Price, former member of Britain's National Nuclear Corporation Safety Policy Unit:
"(R)adiation leaks will continue....(It will) be 50 to 100 years before nuclear fuelrods have cooled enough to be removed," but thousands of them have already fully or partially melted.
