It is probably going to effectively destroy the reactors once this is all done because of the salt but they were set to be decommissioned soon anyway so it really doesn't matter. Claims like that are nothing more than sensationalist journalism.

Sorry, but I have to disagree, sensational journalism??? This was the leading nuclear power "guru" for the us on cnn. That's hardly someone who would make up facts. If he says it, I have to believe that he is right.

Read all of damric's posts in this thread, he pretty much explained exactly why this has NO chance of being even near Chernobyl scale.

Only realistic way this ends up bigger than Chernobyl is if China/Russia/US decides to use a nuke to... well... stop a nuke? Somehow, that's borderline unrealistic from my perspective.....

The worse thing you can do is believe what ONE person says...

Just heard on BBC radio that radiation readings were now above legal limits. Something about being exposed to a years worth of radiation in an hour. Apparently the Japanese government said it was still safe though? Did anyone hear that?

It is a last ditch effort in the sense that the cooling systems aren't working and this is the best solution. As already said though fresh water IS the normal coolant, salt water will rust and likely ruin the reactors but it will work just as well once they get it more under control.
