"Concern is growing that the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan is no longer stable after temperature readings suggested one of its damaged reactors was reheating.

The plant's operator, Tokyo Electric Power (Tepco), said the temperature inside No 2 reactor – one of three that suffered meltdown after last year's earthquake and tsunami – may have reached 82C on Sunday."

With Greece, Occupy, Iran and every other gorilla on our heads, it is easy to momentarily forget about Fukushima, but this is a situation we all must pay attention to closely. -- JB, Supervising Editor
