    Interesting way of putting it.
    But I do not think it is Nuclear boy that is pooting his pant`s right now. Hate to say it. But look at the last few months and what has happened all over the world. Maybe 12/21/12 is not so far away.

    I want to move to Japan now...they honestly seem to care about the well being of the collective of their people, even to the point of making light of their nuclear problem. Unlike the U.S. which only cares about the well-being of a few rich individuals and corporations and makes everything into a disaster scenario that we must fear.

    Wow, that actually made a lot of sense. I know feel that I can accurately describe the details of the situation at hand (although not in the metaphor of nuke poop).

    this seems to me a way for parents to explain the crisis to their children more than anything and if i was young and scared by all the news i can see myself being comforted by this

    this is actually such a touching and appropriate way to explain this to children. They need to understand what is happening as well. We shouldn`t criticize them for this, this makes perfect sense especially for a child. Who cares if there weren`t any women in it till the end? Or that this seems "weird" of course it is weird to us! We`re (hopefully) adults. Jeez, they`re doing the best they can in the situation. I like that the narrator isn`t hiding the danger of the situation either. He is diluting it, yes, but he isn`t just lying to the Children either.

    I`m glad that the COUNTRY that was hit by this disaster, put this out to comfort and inform, as well as inject some lightheartedness into this situation. In the US, it`s just, "THIS RADIATION WILL drat YOU UP, RUN!!!"...I mean, Japan is pretty cool for this.

    this was awesome, way to go japan to explain it in terms that even the american red neck can understand, but mostly for kids, very informational and educational, now i want to visit japan even more after they are done fixing everything that is and there is no poop leaking from the diaper

    we have solar, wind, water. stop with the nuclear energy already

    @Agent00Smith: I am a big fan of solar, wind and water energy - especially solar. The sad reality is these currently don`t and CAN`T provide enough energy with their current technology.

    So we use coal, oil, and nuclear, which all have downsides.

    It is easy in a kindergarten way to say "stop with the nuclear energy already," but us adults need to remain logical and find real solutions. As of today, the solutions we have still require some amount of energy that is not solar, wind or water.

    So grow up and pick your (hopefully temporary) Poisson: coal, oil, or nuclear while we work on better long-term solutions.

    We can`t expect the other side to take us seriously when we act like ignorant children.

    Nuclear power provides about 6% of the world`s energy and 13–14% of the world`s electricity, with the U.S., France, and Japan together accounting for about 50% of nuclear generated electricity.

    This bad press for nuclear energy is very unfortunate. Using nuclear energy is the only way we can even come close to being globally sustainable.

    Fivezones = Voice of Reason.

    But to follow up, we really need hydrogen energy, or we need to perfect our solar technology. In 15 minutes the sun blasts the earth with enough energy to power the entire planet for a year.

    That`s a lot of lost energy. If we spent all year harvesting it on a large but highly efficient solar farm then that would be the best solution. Nature has a 95% energy uptake when it comes to the sun. Right now we hang at about 25% of the energy from the sun gets converted. We NEED to reach about 70-80% before it becomes extremely viable.

    well, it is obviously meant for children, and think about it, if you were a kid and living in japan right now you`d probably be thinking you were all gonna die. need some way of understanding that they may not... or they might!~ who knows?

    Read `Without Hot Air` by David JC MacKay. It`s a free online book that outlines just how difficult getting anywhere near to being sustainable is if we don`t use nuclear energy. The waste is manageable in this day and age.

    Its interesting how they mention the "doctors" they were right that the doctors are working so hard because they know the impact. What also needs to be told is that these people know they are going to die from the radiation poisoning and just like the kamikaze pilots in WWII they are voluntarily giving their lives to save every one else. This isn`t guess and speculation, a leaked message from one of the workers confirmed they all know they are going to die. (Insert Mr. Spock comment here).
