Running down the melting down

Here is a good place to keep up with the state of Japan's reactors.

This thread has some knowledgeable discussion of the accident(s) as well as of reactors and energy in general, tho I am always skeptical of solar-power advocates. FBOW, we are likely stuck with nuclear, so the problem is to make it as safe as possible. ("Don't build your plants in a notoriously earthquake-prone country" is one unkind thought that came promptly to mind when the news broke.)

... Brad DeLong has more links, taking a conservative view. Scientific American does the worst-case scenario.
