This is some scary stuff. It's not even the only plant having problems right now.

I can't believe all of the chaos over there...it doesn't seem real, and the danger isn't over. Scary

Wow!

While I agree why build a plant like that in a EQ prone nation, but it just seems to go from bad to worse. =/

oh gosh, apparently there are 55 nuclear plants in Japan...

someone on a TV show yesterday commented: 'apparently the booming economy/factories etc needed the energy'
and as Japan 'doesn't have anything' (?) (not sure if that's true, that's what a studio guest said) like no coal etc, they went for nuclear (?)

yesterday evening they said they were all 'pretty safe' and that only one nuke plant had a 'possible problem with the cooling system' ??? oi

The link about didn't work for me so I posted this one: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-12723092 (it looks a bit more hopeful, hm?) Though we'll probably only know in a while, for sure..
NY Times doesn't seem so upbeat: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/13/wo...lear.html?_r=1
Well, we'll see... :(

A map with the powerplants - what were they thinking indeed?? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-12716870 (so many are along the coasts...)

Some good news too: Google helps to find people http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-12711244 (I think it's only right as much of the energy for Google is nuclear too..)
