Japanese Government Cover-up Foreshadows Mega-Disaster

According to the Japanese government, the explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi No. 3 reactor is not much to worry about.

Despite some slip ups here by Jones, who is not a nuclear expert, he is essentially right about the danger and the strong likelihood that what we've seen lately are reactor meltdowns - not just simply steam explosions.

At the time of this posting a fourth reactor has blown at the Fukushima site.
