OT. but who cares its RANsquawk 

Please explain to me how Japan can take 50 of its power plants off-line for months and not affect productivity?

Did they have extra coal/oil plants on standby?

Something does not add up, and I have found very little  infomation regarding this puzzle.


 A typical nuclear power plant produces 500 to 5000 megawatts of power. If we take 2000 as average, an average plant produces 2000 megawatt hours in an hour, or 48,000 megawatt hours in a day,

50 x 48,000 = 2,400,000 megawatt hours a day. 

2,400,000 megawatt hours a day is NOT being generated or distributed!

I will go out on a limb here and say that this is some sort of conspiracy, and then I will cut off that limb in question.
