Default Re: Japan's Earthquake

It seems that nuclear is best if not in an earthquake zone. Not sure what a small, power intensive country like Japan can do there, though. It looks like a wicked problem.

I feel so sorry for the Japanese people stuck without water for 5+ days in freezing temps or stuck indoors, unable to go outside while wondering if the radiation will reach critical point. It's like hell. Think of those who are in early pregnancy, wondering what the radiation will do to the foetus.

This on top of the Queensland floods, Christchurch earthquakes and the civil war in Libya (remember them?). 2011 has been a freakout year for an awful lot of people ...
