Nuclear armageddon and the experts

     New Politics readers will be interested in reading Mina Hamilton’s sharp analysis of Japan’s nuclear crisis in her recent article on Dissident Voice. Since the article was published on March 16, Mina has added the following note:

“The latest: radioactive steam continues to pour out of several stricken reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear complex. All six reactors now appear to be in trouble. Gregory Jaczko, the Chairman of the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, appears before the US Congress. Warning of ‘extremely high radiation,’ Jaczko says one irradiated fuel pool is totally without coolant. Meanwhile, Japan desperately tries to provide sea-water coolant via helicopters and water-cannons.”
