Danger of Spent Fuel Outweighs Reactor Threat

"Years of procrastination in deciding on long-term disposal of highly radioactive fuel rods from nuclear reactors are now coming back to haunt Japanese authorities as they try to control fires and explosions at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station.
Some countries have tried to limit the number of spent fuel rods that accumulate at nuclear power plants — Germany stores them in costly casks, for example, while Chinese nuclear reactors send them to a desert storage compound in western China’s Gansu province. But Japan, like the United States, has kept ever larger numbers of spent fuel rods in temporary storage pools at the power plants, where they can be guarded with the same security provided for the power plant."
Devastation. And now in the snow and freezing cold.

Devastation. Loss after loss. and freezing with no home, no food, no water and no blankets.

Devastation. Loss after loss in the snow and dark.

Then the fear of radiation contamination.

The value of a bicycle in a disaster.

Tragedy in Japan. Adult and child dead.

Meanwhile, in another part of the same planet. Rainbow cloud over Everest.
