Nuclear engineer tells us all to stop panicking about the nuclear plant in Japan and concentrate on helping those who have lost their homes and loved ones (not to mention people in Christchurch in the same situation):

I hadn't actually realised this was one of the 10 most powerful earthquakes EVER RECORDED. Jesus. If that article is true, I am really impressed with the engineers who built the thing. To be that robust is downright amazing.

What do the engineers (and non-engineers) think? I agree that comparisons with Chernobyl are insulting, given that the latter resulted from extremely negligent and stupid behaviour followed by downright criminal concealment of what was going on...
