    @Jo-Ann, That is not the implication to have the US sit this one out. As with all things in life, some things needs to be done alone and other things needs a collaborated effort!

    @Casey, I didn't say it wasn't fallout--I was just saying, best to wait for the fallout to get heavier before taking the tablets;-)

    Good night everyone.

    Time to go back and read tonight's blogs. I can't keep up with all you wonderful bloggers.

    Thank you Secretary Clinton and staff for all your hard work these past weeks. Your results were spectacular.

    Goodnight AC360 and staff. Great show.

    Stay strong Libya!

    It took from 1979 to 1993 to clean up 3 Mile Island; Chernobyl left areas from Minsk to Kiev, hundreds of miles, virtually uninhabitable. With 6 reactors and spent fuel pools at Fukishima that will never be used again anyway b/c of the seawater, Dr. Michio Kaku's idea of emtombment is sounding more and more like the last best option....

    Krasi, It's reasonable to have at least a decision. Id Obama on one hand says Qadhafi must go, then does nothing to back it up, that's being indecisive.

    @Jo Ann, no one country can act (or move) without an resolution of the security council..

    Otherwise it would be an act of war.

    Krasi, from Houston...are you ready to spend more money for another war?

    March 18, 2011 at 10:57 pm |
  16. Chris from Indiana

    @Krasi. A year after Chernobyl, the US doubled the amount of background radiation we are receiving on a yearly basis. If containment is unattainable in Japan, it will be Chernobyl X 20+ because of the massive amount of spent fuel(waste) thats involved.

    Good night everyone. Have a good and safe weekend. We'll hope and pray for better news for the coming week. Continued good thoughts and prayers going out to the people of Japan and for those making decisions about Libya.

    The spent rods that are emmiting radiation due to exposure from lack of water in coolant pools could re-react if there is no water covering them.

  21. Casey Jones - Palm Springs, CA

    OK Mike & Chris, if it's not fallout, what's the terminology? For average people, like me, it's semantics. Nikki, I have no idea what they are thinking (or over-thinking).

    Gary Tuchman, great job finding the two Americans! So glad you went to the trouble to do that!!

    Re: Japan, Why don't we use a pilot-les B52 or other large transport to bomb/drop ICE or SNOW on the reactors to try and cool them down????>

  24. Krasi, Houston

    So if the US doesn't intervene in an issue in some other country, Americans should be ashamed because we are sitting it out? We should then go and liberate any nation or people out there suffering in the hands of a dictator. Or must we wait for the story to make the news and then we can start demanding that the president make a decision to intervene?

    I hope they will find Tyler Anderson soon, God be with her where ever she's at.

    Why expose firemen to radiation when helicopters can drop spray end of hose on building and the water pumped from a distance could continuosly flood the RX building?

    why cant they use a whole wack of snow making machines, to cool down this stuff. They could either build up a huge pile of man made snow close to the plants like a mountain and push it into the plant with bull dozers or excavaters or air dump the snow into them via helicoper or plane. Im sure this would be way more affective and accurate to deploy?

    @Nina
    CAT scan radiation is only during the CAT scan. There are no activated particles on the person after the CAT scan to farther emit radiation. Half life only refers to radioactive particles that emit radiation as they decay. Not applicable to normal Cat scan.

    It is nice to hear that these two Americans are alive. I was thinking that they did not hve adequate means of communication due to the circumstances. Their mothers must be thanking God.

    Why aren't the Japanese using robots to do the work in the destroyed nuclear plant? The Japanese and US businesses should have enough robots to make progress in the plant.
