ALERT: US News Media Under-Reporting Actual Reactor Conditions in Japan, Nuclear Fission Possible

Alert: Listen very carefully to the narration of this first video clip. This Japanese news anchor is referring to exposed spent nuclear fuel rods, and the steam is rising from the pools where those rods are located in at least 4 locations. The US news media has now moved on to other stories, but this story IS NOT OVER. The danger for clouds of radioactive steam, mixed with weather precipitation, to float over the USA via the jet stream, in successive waves, over days to come, is not over. Here is the video clip:

Updated: High Possibility of Fukushima Nuclear Reactor Meltdown, Say Japanese Nuclear Safety Officials: Check USA Incoming Jet Stream Maps

Japanese nuclear safety officials have stated there is a very high possibility that the Fukushima Nuclear Reactor could fail. Fuel rods are exposed, according to a report in the British press. I would suggest subscribers study maps of the Pacific Jet Stream to ascertain where the air flow might pass over parts of the American land mass and take proper precautions. Mainstream press in the United States may or may not report the gravity of this situation to avoid what they would deem as unnecessary panic. NOW is the time to educate yourself quickly about radioactive fallout and what percentage would constitute a danger to your health if exposed.
