If you're a fan of Time'sEcocentric blog, as I am, you may have noticed that all 12 of their posts last week focused exclusively on Japan's nuclear crisis. This from a site whose tagline claims

A blog about all things green, from conservation to Capitol Hill

The narrow nuclear-centric focus continues into this week, but with a slight, seemingly unintentional ironic twist, in this acknowledgment from Bryan Walsh (in a post otherwise about Japan's radiation concerns):

It's worth stating at the outset: while more than 10,000 people have almost certainly died in the March 11 quake and tsunami in northeastern Japan, not a single person has been killed in the ongoing nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Daiichi plant.

If it's worth stating then maybe it will be reflected in the stories covered this week at Ecocentric.
