#Fukushima I Nuke Plant: "Reactor 4 Spent Fuel Pool Has No Water," Says One Expert

Is there, or isn't there, any water in the Spent Fuel Pool on any Reactor at Fukushima, but particularly on Reactor 4? Now the Nobel-prize winning Secretary of Energy assures us there is water, and that's what the Japanese government and TEPCO have been insisting all along.

But this expert begs to differ. Commenting on the video of Reactor 4 (that I posted on March 31 here, too; video was taken on March 24) he says there is no water left, water is not filling the pool, the spent fuel rods are exposed, and that's probably the source of plutonium and cerium that have been detected.
