NCNUKE readers have been ahead of the blast damage aspect of the nuclear disaster in Japan.  Three explosions at Fukushima Diiachi reactors #1, and 3 have no doubt caused the raising radiation levels.  A more hostile and dangerous work environment would be hard to imagine.  Now the Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco) the plants operator is talking about using seawater dropped by helicopter to cool the damaged reactor!   It is a clear sign of how desperate the

situation has become.  Everyone is familiar with the image of helos and planes dropping water on forest fires.  In an area where there may be a huge explosion at any second seems suicidal!  The explosions likely account for the raised radiation levels across the nation as dust and steam are thrown into the atmosphere.
