I was horrified by these images of Japan that a friend sent a link to: same angle satellite images of the devastated areas before and after the earthquake/tsunami. Today they revealed the exposed radiation levels are much higher than they wanted to admit. If any good can come of this disaster, let it be that we stop building nuclear power stations globally.
