Any way this can be force-fed to CNN, Fox and all these other knee-jerk reactionaries who faint, then wake to go rabid about anything nuclear?
Additional analysis on Zero Hedge now ... why this does not look like Chernobyl:
“The explosion at No. 1 generating set of the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan, which took place today, will not be a repetition of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster,” said Valeriy Hlyhalo, deputy director of the Chernobyl nuclear safety centre.
He was quoted by Interfax news agency as saying Japanese reactors were better protected than Chernobyl, where just over 30 firefighters were killed in the explosion. The world’s worst civilian nuclear disaster, Chernobyl has also been blamed for thousands of deaths due to radiation-linked illness.
“Apart from that, these reactors are designed to work at a high seismicity zone, although what has happened is beyond the impact the plants were designed to withstand,” Hlyhalo said.
“Therefore, the consequences should not be as serious as after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.”
