A nuclear power plant in Japan is failing - part has already exploded. The melt down of the core is being discussed.
It's been my nightmare since realising the folly of Sizewell and nuclear power as a teenager living in Suffolk.
If that melt down happens - and I sincerely hope it does not - then we're not just heading for one of the biggest ecological disasters in human history. We're also heading for a massive humanitarian disaster. And if Tokyo is as disrupted as I fear - it being only 200 miles or so a way, we face potential global financial melt down.
If there is no one to deal wih the counter party to debts in a global financial system it stops. Banks can't work through that.
Don't think nuclear melt down in Japan is some minor issue.
It's massive. For the world.
I am very, very worried.
