Would certainly agree, Robin.

And as bad as this situation may be, now and in the days to come, it's
certainly possible that not only the unfortunate Japanese might suffer.

Schools in the Philipinnes have been instructed to tell their students
to stay out of any rain. And, 4 schools i know have sent students home.

The three *active* nuclear reactors at the plant have exploded and the
fourth is on fire. Here's a photo which *clearly* shows massive damage:


So, the four reactors, each 40 years old, might quickly become a world
issue. Already, they are threatening neighbouring countries, seriously.
