RE: The nuclear situation in Japan is getting worse, experts worry about other plants in seismic zones
Everything is a trade off oil and coal are poisons and the burning is filthy. Every form of energy has a down side, radiation has a fear factor beyond the reality while the oil and coal and pesticide herbicide and persistent organic residues are hidden form of risk. When the real risk becomes 1 in 100 this is what is basically what is acceptable risk ( the risk level is set higher for any individual factor but synergy among all risks can bring the real cumulative risk this high, this is acceptable here in the US ) praise be Reagan! So place the risk in perspective after all the lining of cans had BPA. PCB and dioxin is forever no half life. This is not good but a better design might have helped no one has much experience with this kind of disaster of magnitude. I can only hope that containment can be maintained.
