  1. Forget about volcanoes and earthquakes. If Fukushima collapses it will change the entire planet forever. The radiation that leaks out would destroy the whole of North America within a few days and then go over to Europe. Within a few weeks it would be round the southern hemisphere and most life on the planet would be extinct.
    You would think that no matter the cost, this would be sorted ASAP but….!
