And the problem wouldn't be only a power shortage. Reactors that don't produce electricity are non-performing assets that weigh heavily on the utilities' balance sheets. -- Rice Farmer

That leaves Japan with only 18 reactors functioning out of 54 for now. There is no way Japan's economy can function, let alone grow under this scenario. When all 54 in Japan shut down that will only leave about 400 to go around the world.  It's a start, but at what a cost. -- MCR
