Context or Panic: You Decide

This post at Slate does a nice job of putting the nuclear power plant crises in Japan in context.  Not only are the power plants in Japan not nearly as much in panic mode as CNN would have you believe, but when compared with other sources of energy, nuclear power still appears to be safer.  Of course, there is still the problem of what to do with the nuclear waste, but mindlessly reacting to this is a bad idea.  Just look at who is mindlessly reacting--Joe Lieberman.  That is pretty much all you need to know.
