Science gone wrong! Wake up humanity, time to new energy!

Radio Ecoshock: The Worst Problems In The World
Alex Smith, of
Radio Ecoshock, interviews nuclear industry expert Arnie Gundersen, of
Fairewinds Associates. Smith notes that the nuclear accident at
Fukushima Japan is far from over as three reactors continue to meltdown.
Smith adds that now there is a storm of international worry about nuclear fuel pools tottering in blown up buildings putting the whole Northern Hemisphere at risk.

Gundersen says it is unlikely there would be an explosion if the #4 Fuel pool collapses. But dangerous "hot" particles would still be sent around the world, because within two days of the collapse, the Zirconium and radioactive metals
(like Cesium and Plutonium) would burn at a very high temperature, sending particles high into the air. The result would be an everlasting disaster for Japan.
Arnie thinks it could create a no-man's land 50 miles across the country, perhaps destabilizing the government.

According to Smith,
"Arnie Gundersen, a year ago, warned us here on Radio Ecoshock, and to
anybody who would listen, that a world-scale catastrophe was lurking in
the nuclear fuel storage pools of both reactors Three and Four,
at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan.
Why is this story finally getting wider attention, a year later?"
