March 30, 2012 Burlington, Vermont - On March 29, 2012, The New York Times reported under a headline “Japan Admits Nuclear Plant Still Poses Dangers” that the “damage to the core of at least one of the meltdown-stricken reactors at Fukushima could be far worse than previously thought, raising fresh concerns over the plant's stability and gravely complicating the post-disaster cleanup.” The source is an internal investigation released this week by the Tokyo Electric Power plant operator, also known as TEPCO, is the manager of the Fukushima nuclear power planet. The TEPCO investigation has revealed that the Unit No. 2 reactor barely has water in the containment vessel that holds the radioactive fuel rods. Unit 2 has only two feet of water instead of the 33 feet its supposed to have to keep the fuel rods stable.
