That being said, the overall idea of cutting back nuke power because of one record setting series of events is plain stupid. I heard Germany is shutting down a bunch of theirs until they can go over their safety procedures. Somehow I doubt they'll have the problem of a Top 10 earthquake (5 times stronger than the plants were designed to withstand...) followed by a massive tsunami knocking out the backup generators to deal with. Overall Japan just happened to get bit by Murphy hardcore, and it's no excuse to hobble your own infrastructure half a world away.
From The Shooter's Log. My only added comments are that unless you're in a complete dustbowl (like great chunks of A-stan) you really can't run it too wet. That being said, I tend to just hit the points the article mentions with some good gun grease and blast some CLP in there when it gets gross (which is often... I hate cleaning guns.)
