Japan's Nuclear Disaster

From BBC News. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-pacific-13050228 There's been a lot of criticism that the Fukushima nuclear disaster has received a disproportionate amount headline news given that no one has died as a result of the nuclear incidence. I would tend to agree. The 9.0 earthquake which created the tsunami was x8000 stronger than the one that hit Christchurch. It's a testament to the Japanese that any of the nuclear reactors survived.
