    Human error tends to draw further attention than naturally occuring problems.
    Fukushima is/was human error. Rock markers identified the high earthquake tidal waves of the past and they were well above the sea walls installed by the NUCLEAR "experts." Your experts couldn't see the rocks because they had been educated beyond their intelligence.

    The human error was putting the pumps in a place where they would obviously be flooded in a foreseeable event like this. That is a side issue though, the point is "oil bad, nuke good" especially since the medias hero (Obama) is on record as being pro nuke anti oil.

    I don't necessarily believe this to be true - the difference is that Fukushima is not in America and not in the mainstream media's face every day. I remember back in the late 70's when Three Mile Island in Pennsylvannia had its accident - that was pretty big news for a long, long time. Environmental activists and their media friends hate nuclear energy just as much as they hate fossil fuels. They all want to drive around with a windmill on the roof of their motorized bicycles and live life by candlelight. Bring the nuclear accident closer to or into America and all the enviro pimps will be out marching and parading for the cameras, guaranteed.

    I presume you felt your answer was an educated opinion derived from experts giving the MSM their most printable supportive comments and causing you to believe that the event was unavoidable. Simply not true and perhaps not your fault for relying on the Mainstream Media. Mainstream Media, by the way, is supported by advertising monies and tends to support the positions of its' large advertisers. You pay your experts by watching the MSM. Try shutting off your TV and seeking real news around the worldwide web.

    Fukushima is not about Japan. It is about the real danger of Nuclear power. Google Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant/flood threat and find out how close to home Fukushima really is.

    The difference is that in the 70s nuke power was very unfashionable but that has reversed due to the AGW fad. Nowadays nuke is considered green energy by the warmer crowd. The pendulum swings.

    I appreciate what you're saying and I wasn't criticizing the OP - I was questioning the premise that oil spills are more newsworthy than nuclear when the newsworthiness is, in my view, directly proportional to the proximity of the accident to the American networks.

    I disagree with your assertion that nuclear is considered green energy by environmentalists, but I won't belabor the point.

    Nuclear power has always been a mistake, no more should be built and those in existence should be shut down.

    No other power source has the ability to render an area uninhabitable for thousands of years, to cause millions of birth defects, emit pollutants that last thousands of years - and now the ability to cause cancer, birth defects and dna damage to every living thing on earth in this next disaster.

    After 3 Mile Island, we were assured some impossible bizarre sequence of events occurred and it could never happen again.

    After the disaster in Russia, people were told that was a fluke and because of Russian bad design - that it can't happen again.

    They are saying the same thing about Japan now.

    The nuke near us has (finally) been permanent closed due to cracks in the reactor housing that would cost hundreds of millions of dollars to repair.

    Supporting nuclear power is like a religious belief to many people who just chant that nuclear power is best. And when such as this happens they just declare it was an anomaly and chant even louder "MORE NUKES! MORE NUKES!"
