Nuclear Reactor Explosions & Meltdowns in Japan; Nuclear Energy Politics (Top News)

March 15th, 2011 by

"A combination photo made of still images from video footage March 14, 2011, shows the explosion at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power complex. A hydrogen explosion rocked a crippled nuclear power plant in Japan on Monday where authorities have been scrambling to avert a meltdown following Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami."

If you’re interested in the nuclear disaster occurring in Japan and nuclear energy news around the world, there’s so much to keep up with that it’s probably hard to keep your head from spinning. I post top news on a variety of subjects nearly everyday here on Planetsave (see the 7 categories on the left) and have found that glancing through those headlines (and clicking through on the ones that grab you) is a really good way for me to keep up-to-date with things without letting my head spin off.

Hoping that I could help you on that front as well, I thought that today I’d pick out some of the biggest and best news on the nuclear reactor explosions and possible meltdowns from around the internet as well as some of the best coverage of nuclear energy politics and post it here for you.
