(PhysOrg.com) -- When working properly, nuclear reactors produce large amounts of heat via nuclear fission reactions. The heat converts the surrounding water into steam, which turns turbines and generates electricity. But if you remove the water, you also remove the most important cooling element in a nuclear reactor and open up the possibility for nuclear meltdown.
Yeah except the seawall wasn't all that high. I don't think it was that hard to predict we'd get a larger tsunami so I'm not sure it was really "man's best efforts".
