Currently, high values of radiation are being measured in the newly fallen snow in Canada and North America. As long as the leakage of cooling water from the nuclear reactor of Fukishima is not yet fixed, the Oceans are becoming more radioactively by day.

dangdude; not all areas of Indonesia have earthquakes, but the scary thing is that there sometimes are earthquakes in locations scientists do not know about. Recently there was a quake about 4 on the Richter scale just 10 kilometers east of Cirebon. I felt that one, but for me it was just like those small quakes that now regularly hit Yogyakarta for example, but still scary because of it's location.

I assume (and hope) that any nuclear power plant is built according to international standards, a 9.0 Richter quake is something you can't build for, not in Indonesia and not in Japan as it is economically too expensive. Risks will always have to be balanced against the costs.
