    It's pretty sad to attempt to politicize this subject and be accusatory, what's your point. I made some close friends over in Japan when i lived there, these are good people and my heart goes out to them as I worry about my friends. Rest assure I'll do my part...

    I didn't flip through the entire thread so I don't know if someone might have already posted this, but apparently FIVE reactors are in trouble now.

    Blast at Japan nuke plant

    A build-up of hydrogen interacted with oxygen and caused a minor explosion, damaging the outer walls, NOT THE REACTOR VESSEL. They're safe on that account, but if there are more explosions, they could see another Three-Mile Island.

    Blast at Japan nuke plant

    The Fukushima Dai-ichi plant had an explosion when hydrogen reacted with oxygen. The outer walls were damaged, the REACTOR VESSEL IS OKAY. Just worried more of those could happen...

    Instant gratification right winger.
    Except we are running out of oil and it seems nuclear plants may not be as safe as they thought.

    You realize that with the increased neutron output resulting from this action, we are all going to die right?
