fort calhoun: fukushima in slow motion

A pictured subtitle, whether nuclear waste is a threat, captures sense of low regard for viewers. Theoretical Physicist Michio Kaku, on the other hand, provides some insight into the dangers at both Los Alamos and Fort Calhoun, NE in a recent interview. It's a good thing that Los Alamos doesn't store nuclear bombs there, but a bad thing there are barrels of nuclear waste on site. Kaku provides best insight into potential tragedy at flooded Fort Calhoun nuclear plant, "...like Fukushima in slow motion." It only "takes 36 hours for water to boil off" once water pumps fail, says Kaku. The physicist put threshold for flooding pumps at an additional two feet, at that point, "it would be Fukushima 2.0." Will this year be remembered as the very tense nuclear summer of 2011?
