Lotions now three nuclear reactor is a massive fire said to be burning in a fourth one.
Are radioactive fuel rods fully exposed at one point once again 23 people have received the -- had decontamination treatment.
Now panic over the possibility of radiation leaking into the air and possibly making its way across the Pacific to American soil is that even possible.
Everyone needs to calm down why.
Because -- did virtually impossible that any radiation could move.
Japan to the united state -- -- negative impact in back.
The entire horrible situation.
With a nuclear -- in Japan is not going to add significantly.
To the problems of the earthquake and the -- on the all right we only have a look at the worst nuclear disaster in history Richard noble and there was no containment structure it blow up.
In -- -- ten years later when -- -- back where in the world less than and -- fatality traumatic exposure only people right near the plant.
Were expected by the radiation a thousand people got leukemia 998.
Were sure there were out -- no -- whatsoever of the radiation that moved down range shot hundreds of miles.
As we're predicted it would have predicted that ten outlook people we get -- their children would be a -- it is thought this -- This is not an atomic -- people go to expand a nuclear reactor is something.
Very different than an atomic bomb in the radiation that right now it's coming out is -- -- to reduce pressure in these areas so that they can change apple is not -- Likely they will not be -- They melt down may continue to -- end point which would be like Three Mile Island where all belted.
-- to the ground it melted by the prevention to a -- and shut steel structure at the bottom and that was the end and they were no help impact.
There are horrible horrible problem Japan's image that this is creating is unwarranted I'm not -- -- -- -- And the Chernobyl situation.
That -- frankly -- by the Soviets was -- that I was a mess to begin with.
And and the fallout from Chernobyl what was it known for weeks if not months if not years after that.
But what we have in the last 24 hours is.
An explosion in one reactor a fire in another.
And that's what leads to the human drama because we do not know what's going to happen next.
And knowing that knowing that we have not being here at this point yes.
In Japan how can you safely say.
That this will not lead to anything we have seen before and and the people that -- be okay.
I can safely say that I think study Chernobyl and -- are understanding the way air -- -- is radiation understanding that it.
Reactions that are going on in -- and what it escaping your what is at -- I can say with great certainty that bit.
-- -- -- -- Partly overblown I mean I -- -- got a few people.
Will not out radiation problem I can't stated there won't be a single page -- I can't say that it will be minimal and that fear mongering that is going on.
And provoking were stressed that already exist in this article that there is unwarranted because people.
Do not understand what it nuclear power plant and I hit an ice ball the nuclear industry Bur not the last twenty years.
Blaming what -- nuclear power plant it urged people should not be living here.
I you say the Japanese did a good job of the construction here with a containment walls and trying to withstand a nine point oh earthquake followed by a tsunami.
Back to back disasters.
I am saying they get a good job -- -- to go to the forty year old plant.
It's been upgraded -- been improved it was prepared for 842.
Earthquake this was at nine point no.
They get the best they could under the bed and they're doing -- and taping job.
Now and why don't all the things that are -- -- -- you say the biggest concern.
Is bodies Washington from the C on the shore.
You believe that's a greater issue than what we're watching now with a nuclear plan.
While I don't I have to -- -- -- hundred I think that is a greater issue to be broad goal based.
Yes I lost -- -- -- day results.
From the nuclear power plant problems which I think will not result are miniscule compared to what we're witnessed.
Jay -- thank you on the phone at a Columbus, Ohio -- we're gonna bring on camera tomorrow okay.
When we will see you then -- try and gauge where we are 24 hours from now.
Because -- a story that appears to be changing by the hour Jay -- thank you for your time.
