I wish he could be helped with supplies to help feed all those animals and himself, there has to be something that can be done!

Keigo, God has a special place foe you in his kingdom :-)

I am originally from Japan but now live in NY. There are so many people who want to help him.

Like the engineering for some of our freeway structures in California, Fukushima’s wasn’t. Not only wasn’t impeccable: was not even worthy of a first year engineering student.

If you must build a nuclear power plant, you must imagine, and design and engineer for, the worst scenario. Given that perhaps we should look to alternatives.

My heart is truly with them and my prayers as well. They deserve more help than it seems they are getting. None of our governments should ignore the lessons of this incident nor that of Chernobyl. The repercussions and deaths will go on for many more years and could conceivably be compounded by more of the same. God be with you precious people!

They buried the victims, along with all hope of returning to normality, thanks to the brutality of life under a Communist regime.”

1. it was not communism but socialism.
2. no “brutalities” happened in the late 80s so it is a harsh and fact-less comment.
3. yes, the news did not get out in time and it was wrong to mislead the public but all the citizens were taken care of

Have any nuclear plants built in “mega-thrust” earthquake zones been shut down since the Japanese quake? With the world now understanding what a “mega-thrust” earthquake is, we should have expected our leaders to lead and close down the nuclear plants such as those on the US west coast which cannot withstand such a natural disaster.

Japan seems an invincible nation: rich, disciplined, stoic, educated, pacifist as well as powerful.

Yet this meltdown likely could have been averted if they simply put the diesel generators on the top floors rather than the basement. This in a nation with more earthquakes and tsunamis than perhaps anywhere on earth. The wave was inevitable, the nuclear disaster was not. My heart goes out to the people of Fukushima. Sumimasen, my friends, sumimasen.

This angers me almost more than it saddens me. Such a rich nation and yet some of its people must endure this hell.
