So, the Fukushima site now is a level 7 disaster. Chernobyl is still considered the worst because of the area affected. One talking head this morning said that the Japanese are lucky because the wind has been, for the most part, blowing out over the ocean and not across land. I still find it amazing that we are absolutely unwilling to tolerate any level of risk of terrorism but are quite willing to risk a greater risk of nuclear disaster to achieve an ephemeral reduction in our dependance on foreign oil.
And 'Happy Times Are Here Again'. At least from some. Unfortunately, not for those on whom the profits of these companies really depend--their ordinary workers.
