A good explanation of the Fukushima power plant disaster

I found this explanation by Josef Oehmen to be very thoughtful and helpful. If he is right, the world's concerns are highly inflated. More good information can be found at MIT's site.

He pontificated way too early, weird for someone that wasn't even on the ground. It is a level 6 situation, 1 above 3 Mile Island, 1 below Chernobyl at this point.

"Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency admitted that the disaster was a level 5, which is classified as a crisis causing 'several radiation deaths' by the UN International Atomic Energy"

"It is now officially on a par with the Three Mile Island accident in Pennsylvania in 1979. Only the explosion at Chernobyl in 1986 has topped the scale."
