Post Tsunami Japan
As you can imagine in Post Tsunami Japan the backlash against the Nuclear power industry has been huge. None of their nuclear power plants were operating for quite sometime after the Tsunami, all of them were shut down for ‘scheduled maintenance’ if you can believe that. Only withing the past 2 weeks were two plants allowed to restart.
As the radiation disaster continues, many in the areas most affected by the tsunamis are hoping to rebuild, after all this is their home. What is interesting is the way in which they want to go about it. Sustainable and non nuclear! Solar panels to cover ground that can never be used again due to radiation. Although I can’t for the life of me imagine how or who would install them and then maintain them in such radiation.
I personally am hoping that the nuclear cabal in Japan has been damaged beyond repair and that we will see further damage to the industry worldwide. In my opinion it is absolutely irresponsible to continue to build nuclear power plants and operate those that exist. Once that monster is out of the bag the damage is not reversible in our lifetimes…
My children nor theirs should suffer from this generations arrogance. And arrogance is what it is plain and simple, not only in the case of nuclear power but finance as well. The destruction caused by both, while different, is nonetheless devastating to all of us on the planet!
I am encouraged that the people of Japan are trying to stand up to the political/nuclear/financial/academic cabal that promotes such destructive ideas. Not only can we see the destruction evident in the physical and spreading radiation from the Nukes but also in the financial devastation. Japan has passed a QUADRILLION IN DEBT! This is the highest debt level in both absolute and relative terms as a percentage of GDP.
The citizens of this country should pay heed to the failures in Japan. We are not completely unlike their case model…aging population, enormous debt, nuclear power plants built on geologically sensitive ground, financial/political/academic cabal that has the power!
Time to wake up and take some action…at least in my opinion!
