nearing full ‘China Syndrome’ scenario 30 Nov 2011 The stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant came a lot closer to a full “China Syndrome” meltdown than previous company analyses had indicated, plant operator Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) said Wednesday. The nuclear fuel rods in reactor No. 1 likely melted completely, TEPCO and the Japanese government said for the first time — burning a hole through one surrounding vessel and eating through up to three-quarters of the concrete base at the bottom of a second containment vessel meant as a last barrier between the radioactive core and the outside world. That brought the fuel closer than previously believed to breaching the containment vessel and continuing to burn through the ground below — a catastrophic scenario sometimes described as the “China Syndrome,” from the notion popularized in a US film by the same name, that in a catastrophic meltdown, molten reactor fuel could sink through the earth until it reached China.
Its now reported the situation at Fukushima is even much worse than this above report.
It appears its 4 X worse. The three other disabled damaged reactors are also in various stages of meltdown. Radiation levels continue to rise .Reaching dangerous levels in Tokyo almost 200 miles away.Who knows what levels of radiation has reached the west coast of America and beyond.It seems to be hush hush…for some reason.

Dr. John Apsley reported on increased deaths in North America that he believes are associated with the Fukushima catastrophe, and the leaking of radiation. There was a spike in infant mortality rates within the first 10 weeks of the catastrophe in cities across the US, and the radiation contamination likely came through rainfall, he said, adding that infants were particularly susceptible because of their reduced thyroid function. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster was a series of equipment failures, nuclear meltdowns, and releases of radioactive materials at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, following the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011. It is the largest nuclear disaster since the Chernobyl disaster of 1986. The plant comprises six separate boiling water reactors originally designed by General Electric (GE), and maintained by the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). At the time of the quake, Reactor 4 had been de-fuelled while 5 and 6 were in cold shutdown for planned maintenance. The remaining reactors shut down automatically after the earthquake, and emergency generators came online to control electronics and coolant systems. The tsunami resulted in flooding of the rooms containing the emergency generators. Consequently those generators ceased working, causing eventual power loss to the pumps that circulate coolant water in the reactor. The pumps then stopped working, causing the reactors to overheat due to the high decay heat that normally …
