CNN is reporting “a meltdown may be underway” at the Daiichi reactor. The Japanese Ambassador was asked about it and gave a rather evasive answer, talking about that they are trying to control the core by injecting seawater–which one alleged expert says sounds like a desperation move (a “Hail Mary approach”).
Getting accurate information about this situation seems extraordinarily difficult. But it brings up a question:
If what we have is the “China Syndrome”, this is happening pretty near China . . . and WE are sort of on the other side. Is this an “America Syndrome”?
