Believe It Or Not...

I'm still not opposed to nuclear power, even after the flustered cluck that went down with Fukushima Dai-ichi. That being said, I caught this interview with physicist Michio Kaku, and the professor plainly states that we came real close to losing all of Northern Japan as a habitable area; and would have done if TEPCO had not been forced to pump seawater into the reactors. All jokes about Tohoku aside, that's just gobsmackingly nuts. 

100% meltdown and clowns at TEPCO were apparently more concerned with their investment than the Japanese people. Good to know.


  1. Hooooly shit.
    Side note: I love Michio Kaku and 'The Universe' is one of my all-time favorite shows.
    Anyway, hooooooly shit. TEPCO wtf?? Like.. 100% melt down, and you call that salvageable?? I'm not even a scientist in any way, and I'd still call bullshit.
    Sorry for lacing this comment with profanity, but it's really like.. what the hell..
    I can't even imagine the chaos that would have ensued if that information was running around though..

  2. Be that as it may. What Kaku alleges just boggles the mind. I had to play to clip twice to make sure I heard him right.
