Oh look... conflating nuclear with thousands of death *again*!
"10,000+ people dead, destroyed cities, melted nukes, radiation exposure to people, food, water, etc. and this is a minor incident?"
This is precisely what the media has been doing.
You appear to be dumb. Nobody is claiming that the tsunami and earthquake are minor incidents.
They are saying that in the context of these *really* damaging events, the loss of life due to the consequence of these disasters on a nuclear plant is utterly inconsequential and doesn't merit anything other than a footnote at the bottom of the real story.
You really, really want nuclear to be a killer, but it just refuses to be. Hold on to your beliefs anyway: Stop eating bananas, never enter a hospital, don't whatever you do get on a plane, travel to anywhere with stone buildings or live on the surface of the planet in full view of those gamma rays, or even worse still, take a hike up a mountain.
If I lived in the region and had just had my life washed away by a natural disaster, the last thing I'd be wanting is to go hungry because some rabid commentards on the other side of the planet had decided that I wasn't allowed to eat food as it had the same chance of giving me cancer as a banana.
