  •  look at the date on the article. to go to press, (0+ / 0-)

    the article is done ahead of time - sometimes the physical print/publication time for an article will trump content - the earthquake was 3/11/11 and the comments are 3/15/11 - so, at the time of writing, the full ramification of the disaster had yet to occur.

    also, with scientific american, they don't print "rumor" - they print the facts as are at hand at the time of publication.  i prefer it that way - then, update information - but don't speculate - especially in a scientific journal type of publication.

    i agree with you that there is now a whole lot of hiding going on - but to blame scientific american for attempting to present as clear a picture as possible DURING the event is unfair.

      Units 1 2 and 3 had already exploded.

      There are critical analysts and there are stenographers.

      As soon as i saw the first unit explode, I knew they were just doomed, and that evacuation out of the plume was the only choice.  

      I stopped believing any of the industry types when they had someone on TV saying "These plants are designed to do this"
      as if it's a good thing.

      They may have been designed to explode but it was never a good thing.
