Mini-FAQ about Japan’s nuclear power plant crisis

It has been confusing to try to follow the news from Japan, regarding the situation at nuclear power plants. Treehugger this morning printed an array of articles about the crisis, the most helpful of which, for me, was this one by Michael Graham Richard of Ottawa, Canada: Mini-FAQ about Japan’s nuclear power plant crisis

Another good one from Treehugger today was a piece about radiation exposure by Matthew McDermott in NYC: How Much Radiation Exposure Do You Normally Get Every Year?

I can’t vouch for the accuracy of either article, by the way, and the misinformation has been flying. But Treehugger has the staffing and desire to get things right, and I have appreciated their coverage of this tragedy.
