This is an excellent, concise analysis of the events at the Daiichi 1 reactor at Fukushima following the recent earthquake and tsunami, and why we need not be afraid of nuclear power generation.

This is a similarly excellent overview of the situation in Japan right now from an english-speaking foreigner living and working there.

I recommend that everyone read both of them; it will give you a much better idea of the situation than anything coming from the hysterical news media.

The English language Al Jazeera is doing an excellent job of Not Being Hysterical. Meanwhile, I need a laugh, I watch CNN (Anderson Cooper especially) or most any of the western outlets.

Looking at the town website for where I used to live (between Kuji and Hachinohe cities) it's getting depressing and still very surreal reading the lists of the dead and recognising a lot of the names.

I'd like the world to stop falling over now, please.
