Japan in Crisis
Wednesday, March 16, 2011
As I am overwhelmed by the destruction in Japan; I can’t help but wonder what is coming if they cannot get the nuclear reactors settled down. Why would a country so advanced and meticulous with quality build nuclear reactors on a fault zone? The country of Japan is basically on sections that are coined as the “Pacific Ring of Fire”, and talking to some Japanese people I know, the citizens were against nuclear power when the talks to build these type of power stations. I don’t know what would be better, however government bodies seem to look at the short side of things. It will be interesting to find out why their back up diesel generators and the double back up high voltage batteries failed. One would think that there would be a final mechanical actuator to move the control rods in and stop a nuclear reaction. Let me finish by saying that I would not wish innocent life lost or destruction of a nation, but I bet the whales of the world are thankful if some of the whaling ships were the ones damaged, and that maybe this tragedy will push back their thoughts on taking innocent whales lives.
