The Japanese Nuclear Power Crisis Deepens

Headlines about Japan’s stricken nuclear power plant are becoming rare. But that says more about fickle nature of the media than it does about the tremulous state of affairs at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant (FDI). Despite progress in restoring electricity to some areas of FDI, a  member of the Swedish Radiation Protection Authority commented yesterday, “We still judge the situation to be critical.”

The truth is, Japan’s nuclear crisis is far from over. Not buying it? Here’s the evidence:

1. Radiation at FDI reactor No. 2  spiked yesterday to 500 microsieverts per hour — the highest level since the crisis began on March 11. Officials say they don’t know the source of the radiation, but likely suspects include the reactor’s containment vessel,  the suppression chamber or the spent fuel rod pool — all of which could have been damaged in the explosion of hydrogen gas.
