I am not sure if the industry will be even close to similar a year from now given what's going on with that Power Plant. Imagine a 50 or 100 mile wasteland... Also the Sendai area is a major manufacturing area for Nikon... not sure how they will recover. This is all HORRIBLE news in every way.
Our way of life is changing before our very eyes. NOTHING will be done the same way from now on. Power is suddenly looking like it will be a very expensive resource, more so than now. Solar and Wind and Hydro suddenly look like doable (if more expensive) solutions.
WOW is all I can say.
