Nuclear Reactor Status at Japan’s Fukushima Plant Is Serious

Japan has raised the threat level from a 4 to a 5 (out of 7) at it’s Fukushima Daiichi plant today. This puts it on par with the Three Mile Island accident in Pennsylvania back in 1979.

The Commander of U.S. forces in the Pacific is sending in troops as needed to help aide Japanese workers in staving off a full-blown nuclear catastrophe.

It first got noticed when Daniel Tosh, the host of Tosh.0 put the video on his blog. The video was posted on Youtube in February, but didn’t gain any notice until this week once Tosh pointed it out.
