Next month marks the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. (This month marks the 32nd anniversary of the partial meltdown at Three Mile Island, in Pennsylvania.) With radiation crises possibly looming in Japan, it is time to seriously reconsider the American administration’s new push for U.S.-based reactors. There are myriad alternative-energy options to aggressively pursue without having to resort to nukes.

Radiation fears aside, I don’t know which video from Japan is more chilling:

This sequence showing the advancing tide of debris from the tsunami or this one showing office towers shaken by the earthquake’s tremors.

AND ALSO …Michael Shaw’s BagNews Salon has an upcoming online panel worth checking out. On Sunday, March 20th, the site has scheduled a photojournalism salon entitled: "Assignment Egypt: Analyzing News Photos from the 18-Day Revolution."
