something like this was bound to happen sooner or later. Chernobyl should have been the turning point of the world's nuclear policy

"The International Atomic Energy Agency said in a statement that diesel generators that normally would have kept cooling systems running at Fukushima Daiichi had been disabled by tsunami flooding."

Nobody planned on a tsunami following a major earthquake?

I kinda think that most of what we hear in reports is skewed to avoid panic. It's only when the s really hits the fan that we get the real deal. Fact remains a nuclear power plant has experienced a major explosion. Not good.

I think the Japanese are being purposely closed mouthed on this right now - not to be evasive but, like stated above, to avoid panic. Being stoic is their nature. I think they are attempting to handle it themselves and if they are not successful - well, we'll all know about it, won't we?

The U.S. (and other countries) have supplied coolant. Don't know know what else we can do right now.
