Awful! Japan,we wish you the very best luck from now on:
As Japan faces the possibility of reactor meltdown and dirty radiation, I can't help remembering how the "experts" sold the safety of nuclear reactors, back in the 1950's and '60s and '70s. They offered expert analyses proving that an accident at a nucler reactor was unlikely to happen for 10,000 years. Let me guess at a few things those "analyses" failed to consider: Operators accidentally setting a control room on fire (actually happened in Georgia, US); Chernobyl; Three Mile Island; and oh, a really powerful offshore earthquake.
