Just going to the update websites is an incredibly revealing experience. The government offers information on just about every aspect of the condition of the various nuclear power plants affected. There are fact finding missions, damage experts, and reports on the integrity of the power plants themselves. Only the news reporters, with their boots on the ground, give you the true story from the people’s standpoint. The damage was bad enough, but the country has made some drastic decisions not to pursue nuclear energy as a resource. Given the fact that Japan is in the center of two converging plates, and earthquakes are a constant way of life, one might wonder why they considered nuclear energy to begin with. For that answer, you have to know the Japanese, as they are meticulous and detailed and in their minds, they had taken all safety aspects into consideration.
