A terrible situation in which no-one has been subject to a dangerous amount of radiation.
Really, the way people are reacting to this is hilarious. 10,000 have died and we've ignored all of that because of an incident at a nuclear plant that has killed no-one.
Nuclear reactors are akin to airplanes. For the most part, a harmless form of travel, but when one goes down 200 people die at once. Meanwhile, 30,000 people die on American roads each year, but only a handful at a time. It's the shock value of 200 people dying at once that sticks in the minds of the average citizen...
However, I feel compelled to suggest that the situation with the Fukushima nuclear plant is still something to be taken very seriously as long as sensationalism is avoided (Which, unfortunately, the news outlets in my country love to throw in for flavor). Unlike the earthquake and tsunami, if something truly catastrophic happens at the reactor it will be something that cannot be rebuilt or grieved over. It will be a cancer that can never be brought into remission.
Personally? I'm praying for the whole lot over there. Many Japanese face terrible trials by fire, now, and they don't need a major release of radioactivity to make things worse.
