Japan has 2 reactors melting down CNN is reporting

Here is a "reputable" ( and I use that loosly) news site reporting that japan is rushing to save lives and possibly has 2 reactors melting down. If that reactor hits Lava which is close to the surface in Japan or under it. will the uranium hitting the lava pool cause a super huge nuclear explosion?? Food for thought.

  • Japans got a long history of hiding facts about disasters. Google the news coverage for when Japans reactors opened. NOT todays news coverage. They give you a tour and tell you what Bldg's are and that one that exploded was a damn core bldg. They are evacuating over 180 thousand people around the plant and have 9 people with radiation exposure. The Bldg that exploded? That WAS a Core Bldg. Their nuclear plans DO NOT look like American nuclear plants. Sucks to be living in Japan, but it's WAY on the other side of the world from me, Thank God. I dont have to worry about the radioactive steam they are releasing into the air blowing down on me.

  • Every country in the world has gone through enough disasters. No one deserves that kind of trouble. If they melt down more than Japan will be affected. Not to mention the economic recession that will follow on it's heels. And NO ONE needs an even worse economy than we have now.
