Dr. Michio Kaku: Fukishima Daiichi Nuclear Facility is a ‘Ticking Time Bomb’

Dr. Michio Kaku: This accident has already released something on the order of 50 thousand trillion Becquerels of radiation.  You do the math.  That puts it right smack in the middle of a Level 7 nuclear accident.  Still less than Chernobyl, however radiation is continuing to leak out of the reactors, the situation is not stable at all.  So you’re looking at basically a ticking time bomb … a secondary earthquake, a pipe break … could set off a full-scale meltdown at 3 nuclear power stations far beyond what we saw at Chernobyl...

An international team of top physicists and engineers should take over with the authority to use the Japanese military.  I think the Japanese military is the only organization capable of bringing this raging accident under control … because of the fact that the radiation levels are so great.  Workers can only go in for perhaps 10 minutes, 15 minutes at a time and they get their year’s dose of radiation.  You’re there for one hour and you have radiation sickness … you’re there for a day and you get a lethal amount of radiation.  At Chernobyl there were 600,000 people mobilized, each one going in for just a few minutes, dumping sand, concrete, boric acid on to the reactor site.  Each one got  a medal.  That’s what it took to bring one raging nuclear accident under control… In the best case scenario … they hope to bring it under control by the end of this year.
