Frost and Sullivan nuclear market experts Jonathan Robinson and Enguerran Ripert comment on the energy crisis in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami

Global economic impact of the Japanese earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster

Large, but – probably – temporary impact on the Japanese economy; small impact on the rest of the world, says IHS Chief Economist Nariman Behravesh

No knee-jerk reaction on nuclear, say engineers

Institution of Mechanical Engineers appeals for calm amidst Japan nuclear fears

Japanese meltdown fears spark anti-nuclear wave in Europe

Events in Japan threaten a public backlash against the nuclear revival in Europe, and while this may prompt stricter safety regulations, governments' long-term strategies are unlikely to change drastically; existing problems pose a greater threat to the European Nuclear Renaissance.
