      Helen, apparently this guy was living in a shelter and then went home, and that's where they found him. I wonder if he went home and then got a little overwhelmed by the change and got a little disoriented or something. Just glad they were able to help him out of there ...

    If Chris Hope survived the earthquake at the plant, came home and was tested for radioactive exposure (or whatever it's called) and tested negative, then I wonder if that's further evidence that the reactors held up just fine to the 9.0 earthquake and that it was the tsunami-related manfunctions that have caused the leaks. Which would be good news for all the reactors sitting on fault lines in California, etc if that's the case.

    I am discussed at Mr. Morgan's rudeness to the Prime Minister. Who cares what Morgan thinks, I hate his interrupting his guests and trying to get his opinions expressed to the determent of his guests answers. I'm ashamed of his treatment of his guest and he owes Prime Minister an apology.

    Pierce Morgan,

    You are the real journalist I have missed for long time. Journalist like you can change the world view
    It's little unacceptable for some viewers and danger for you because you are breathing within people with full of bigotries.We all know there is always two kind of people: Bad Muslims,Bad Jewish, Good Christians Bad Christians, Good president Bad President,Good political party and Bad political party.
    Good people are those are not supporting,violent,Killing and occupation of other lands and resources regardless of the religions. As I see many blogers start hate you just because you asked Netanyahu a simple honest questions.But don't worry brave people like you has a millions of supporters and not to worry about those brainless ignorant people who basically thing Liberia and Libya is a same country.

    Yesterday your interview with Israeli PM B. Netanyahu was fantastic,you had the guts and balls to ask
    him the honest cut the crap and ask him direct questions no one asked him before.

    Netanyahu? He is not the guy who could earn the Medal of peace. He will not be the Hero of the history,he always talk in some sort of an anger.

    By the way he know the answer,there is no way out unless occupation and installation withdrawn from the Palestinian lands and giving back the Jerusalem.
    Okay we get it,they want there own Jewish state, which already have it and most Arab excepted,than why not return back the rest of the occupied land as per the 1969 UN Border agreement to the Palestinians? why keep the game continue is it all about money?US Giving to Israeli goverments 4 Billions Dollars each year,basically American Tax payers money.

    Netanyahu had the chance to be a Hero but he about to miss the Train.
    If there is bad happening in this world than good always will rise to defeat the bad, and no matter how powerful combat need to be face job will be done. Regardless it's take even for hundreds of years to defeat.Some people they never grew up.

    Does our current use of nuclear power make sense?
    At Fukushima each reactor has between 60 and 83 tons of spent fuel rods stored next to them.
    In the US at Vermont Yankee Power Plant there are a staggering 690 tons of spent fuel rods on site...(left over from boiling water to create steam to generate electricity... brilliant).

    How much potential disaster are we talking about?
    It's said the atomic bomb that exploded at Hiroshima created about 2,000 curies of radioactivity.
    Spent fuel pools at Vermont Yankee are said to hold about 75,000,000 curies of radioactivity (reportedly without backup cooling systems).

    What's wrong with this scenario?
    Running out of oil at an alarming rate, the world should be desperately seeking new sources of energy.
    With hundreds of reactors spread around the globe, seems to be allot just lying around at the moment... unused & extremely dangerous!!
    Why can't we come up with technology for reuse of this 'spent' material? What's stopping this initiative?

    Spending hundreds of billions elsewhere... how much money is presently going to solve these critical issues?
