Economist on Nuclear Crisis in Japan

The Economist has an excellent article on the background of nuclear malfunctions similar to what is happening in Japan and an explanation of the current situation.

The comments, some of which are actually quite informed, fall into two categories.  There is the "Luddite anti-everything" crowd and the "Useful Idiots in the pay of big business" crowd.

BBC's latest information is here.
