1. Before the tsunami one year ago, Japan had 54 nuclear power plants providing 30 percent of the country's electricity. How many plants are on line today?

Observers say Japan could become the first industrial society to enter the postnuclear age: The two plants still running will be shut down by the end of April. All plants must undergo new government-mandated stress tests before reopening, none of which have been completed.
