My graphics card hits 100C when maxing BFBC2. That doesn't sound anywhere near as bad as people are saying it is. Also, what is the likelihood of the temperature seeing a significant gain if the reactor is not running?

I did not know that, good to know. Still doesn't make it a global catastrophe the way some make it out to be.

They are possibly saying there is possible chance of a possible meltdown, possibly.

this link is possibly from Cnn.

2318: US nuclear experts warn that pumping sea water to cool a quake-hit Japanese nuclear reactor is an "act of desperation" that may foreshadow a Chernobyl-like disaster, AFP reports. "The situation has become desperate enough that they apparently don't have the capability to deliver fresh water or plain water to cool the reactor and stabilise it, and now, in an act of desperation, are having to resort to diverting and using sea water," said Robert Alvarez, who works on nuclear disarmament at the Institute for Policy Studies

Isn't it 0820 right now over there? They are 9 hours ahead of us here in the UK.

Fukushima fuel cores are melting at 2000C and dropping onto steel floor. Steel melts at 1500C. Could still be brought under control, but Four other Fukushima nuke reactors are struggling with similar problem. If multiple meltdown begins, it will be uncontrollable

Nowhere near 100c according to this.....

opps where I said

"It isn't really at the brink either they were reporting the rods being at just over 100c a couple hours ago, full meltdown doesn't occur till 540c+."

They were referring to the coolant, not the rods themselves so the rods are likely quite a bit hotter than that. Still likely nowhere near a full meltdown.

The radioactive cloud from Chernobyl passed above where my mom lived during the night (she was carrying me in his belly, maybe that's why I always had a ton of health issues XD), in the morning all the flowers and plants in the garden were dead, not only in our garden but everyone in the immediate surrounding too.

The temps are in Kalvin not Celsius. Meltdown begins to occur at about 1100degree Kalvin when the rods begin to melt.
