Watching the news I can't help but fear for them, and pray they can pull this off.
I look at how Three Mile Island crippled the nuclear industry and power in the USA and I expect this will be a major blow to nuke power in Japan.
In today's energy hungry world this is not good. We need to find a way to make nuke power not only work but be safe. A few years ago I heard about pellet reactors that are not supposed to be able to melt down. . . . Where are they? We need to look into this so we can move the world away from our dependence on oil. Let the middle east go back to fighting over sand.
So I keep my fingers crossed that Japan can pull this one out, it is critical not only for them, but for all of us. . .
