It is interesting in that it points out what usually gets ignored: the
plant got hit by one of the worst combination of natural disasters
available, and was destroyed, but no one was killed by radiation, nor
are they likely to be.  It also points out that in order to shut down
Germany's nuclear power plants they are going to start burning brown
coal again.  This coal is so dirty that even if you don't believe in CO2
related climate change you wouldn't want it being burned upwind of you
(and thus, under most widely accepted ethical and religious standards,
you wouldn't want it burned upwind of anyone else.)
