Fukushima Explosion

Even if the explosion occurred in the turbine wall and not the reactor vessel (there’s this report vs. this), this screen grab alone — beyond the terror it raises in the pit of my stomach — puts nukes back on trial. Praying for the best.

(By the way, to really tell how bad things are at Fukushima, one thing I’m keeping an eye on is the stock price. Fridays’ Tokyo Electric Power Corp. close:  JP:9501 2,121, -32.00, -1.49%)
