That's exactly the point, nuclear power plants built in earthquake zones is insanity. The reactors need cooling, when the power goes down, the diesel generators are supposed to run the pumps and at two plants they aren't running hence the radioactive steam venting.Speculative bull shit. Until they release the information it is useless to spread gossip and fear. Could it be as serious as a China Syndrome? Maybe. Chances? Not likely. They built the thing in a country that is earthquake prone and I am quite sure that the safety measures are in place.
For now all I hear is speculative information being spread around like the news does all the time.
