we have many identical plants here in the US, just waiting for a spate of tornadoes to take out their power supply and have them melt down like those did...or a hurricane, or an earthquake, or an MCE event.

So how this story is not getting the attention it deserves. It's not just about pro or anti nuclear this story is not getting the attention it needs.

Could it be that a US corporation(GE) provided the reactors involved. Is someone protecting GE?

The results of thyroid screening on children from Fukushima are consistent with the worldwide average prevalence of nodules/cysts and do NOT show unusual rates of precancerous thyroid abnormalities.
