Japan reactor core may be leaking radioactive material, official says – CNN.com.

Watching the unfolding disaster in Japan is heartbreaking — and it makes me angry. For the second time in my life now we’re faced with a nuclear no-man’s land manufactured by the energy industry.

Nuclear energy is very dirty, claiming lives and destroying land and sea when stressed.
