Cooling Issues

We'll see how the explosion at Unit 2 is affecting the cooling of that unit. The fire at Unit 4 seems to also be connected to a cooling issue as well (remember these cores were shutdown before the earthquake but they and their attendant spent fuel pools still need to be cooled) which basically means that we ought to hear about cooling issues in Unit 5 and 6 as well. Of concern is that the removal of non-essential personnel from the site allows for potential mishandling.
