We’re Still Not Ready to Panic… We Hope

March 15, 2011

Yep, the reactor problem is getting worse.  But stick to this relevant passage:

There’s one bit of history, however, that TEPCO won’t repeat: due to the radically different designs of the Chernobyl and Fukushima power plants, it is vanishingly unlikely that such an explosive catastrophe as occurred on April 26, 1986 in Ukraine will befall the residents of Japan.

However, it’s also unlikely that those struggling with the reactors at Fukushima Daiichi and Fukushima Daini can accurately predict the exact outcome of their disaster-mitigation efforts.

As Kemper told CNN, “We don’t know enough.”

It’s bad, but I still don’t think the panic in the press is merited.  I’m really glad that the workers are still dedicated to fixing this. Pray for the 50 or so people left fighthing the problems.
