Well, I can tell you, that the tests in germany aren't any better, and I doubt 
they are anywhere else, 'cause the test cost money (reactor not running) and 
they are themselves pretty expensive (material, personell etc). What matters 
is quantity not quality.

Well, the japanese NPS are in a quite good shape, compared to many of the 
german ones. They're back from the 70s ... It may sound a bit sarcastic, but 
the tragidy in Japan, could free Germany from the NPS, using power generated 
by wind and water instead (Norway got some plans for a 14.000 MW pipeline
Norway <> Germany, for example).

Still I guess the core melt-down is coming (reactor 2 doesn't hold any water 
at the moment). I can't understand why people haven't learned from Nagasaki 
and Hiroshima... (before you flame the japanese themselves: the world-wide 
(read: especially US) energy-politics made it practically impossible for Japan 
to use a different method of producing energy).

An initiative to stop the NPS in Germany will be started, soon. I hope - no 
for the first time in my life I pray - that the Bundesrat will make it!

Besides it's unbelievalbe what happens in Japan, I mean:
a) earthquake
b) tsunami
c) NPS core melt-down
d) vulcanic activity (southern Japan)

four catastrophies in one! I mean... I just don't get the bad luck they have 
to run in something like that...

If you're from Germany, you may donate your money via:"Aktion Deutschland 

Besides a lot of helpers from Germany will be send out the support you 

Kind Regards,
