Coverage of the disaster in Japan
Common Dreams is a national nonprofit, progressive, nonpartisan citizens' organization. They put together information about environmental, social justice and peace issues.
You can follow their coverage of the disaster in Japan at a special page they set up. There is a live Twitter feed about the earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear emergency as well as many articles about these issues.
The New York Times has a very informative multimedia slideshow about how a reactor shuts down and how a meltdown could occur. The video clip we watched showing how the Japanese reactors work is here.
