What will it do globally? Environmentally? And to the population of the earth?
I know it is a dumb question, but I really don't know what effects it ill cause.

Here is another one that explains International nuclear event scale Chernobyl was a 7 as bad as it can get, Three mile Island was a 5. The last number for Japan was a 4.

The specter of huge environmental fallout on the scale of Chernobyl is unlikely, though.
The Chernobyl reactor used carbon to slow down neutrons, a key part of the fission reaction. In that disaster, a fire ignited the carbon and created radioactive soot that was carried afar by winds.
The nuclear core in many modern reactors, including the ones in Japan, is enclosed by a steel containment vessel. Today's reactors also use water instead of carbon to slow down neutrons, so there is no big danger of the emanation of radioactive soot from the Fukushima plant.

It will melt through the floor into the ground hit water and explode.

If it meltsdown.... the wind currents will carry the radiation to the West Coast of the USA and it can have affects worse than Cherynobl... this one reactor they are trying to cool down is not doing it... and the safety measures broke down and the thing in there is now exposed... that is bad bad news. They NEED to cool it down.
