Dr. Michio Kaku, Theoretical Physicist: Fukishima Daiichi Nuclear Facility is a "Ticking Time Bomb"
Theoretical Physicist Dr. Michio Kaku is a world expert on the topic with a gift for communicating clearly. In this video he explains what's going on at Fukushima perfectly and accurately, even though it is from April. He suggests that the Japanese military should be used to entomb the reactors like the Russians used soldiers to entomb Chernobyl, which seems of course just about the only thing you can do. Until a few years pass and the tomb starts leaking and you have to build another shell around it anyway. Then for every generation for the next quarter million years somebody will have to monitor and guard and build new shells from time to time, just think with enough reactors you could one day task almost every human on earth in one way or another with dealing with your deadly waste, trash you left behind even knowing how it would burden your children's children for thousands of generations. It will be necessary for every subsequent generation to continually protect themselves from your irresponsible selfishness you inflict on them, all for your few years of cheap electric power.
I do not believe that a sane rational person can wish such danger and harm upon their own children, but that it takes a psychopathically criminal mentality to actually know how dangerous and long-lived plutonium and many other radionuclides are, and STILL favor inflicting nuclear power's legacy upon them.
