Thank you Leonard for doing this! If you think it is under reported in the States, try Japanese media. There wasn't many news regarding the safety of the plant in recent weeks. How refreshing (in a really odd sense) to hear this.

How will this catastrophe affect nuclear power plant design in the USA? Will it affect nuclear power usage in the USA? Worldwide?
