Fukushima

When I say the word “Fukushima”, it’s probably safe to assume that most people, myself included, would think of the nuclear meltdown.  That raises a lot of questions about nuclear power.  Some people might ask, why would a country that was devastated by nuclear bombs in World War II attempt to harness nuclear power, especially when they knew how bad the damage could be?  However, it seems like people have started to realize that.  The only difference in opinions is how bad the situation is to begin with.

First, we met with two Fukushima prefectural officials, and they explained their plan to revitalize Fukushima.  They were kind enough to take time from their schedules to speak with us, and to give us postcards and other things that are native to Fukushima.  When asked about the nuclear radiation, they had said that most of the radiation was gone, and that it was safe to move back to Fukushima.

The other nuclear expert that we spoke to was Koide-sensei.  He was a little more frank about his beliefs concerning the nuclear damage.  He believed that Japan had already done irrevocable damage to itself due to its use of nuclear power.  He wanted them to stop using nuclear power completely, but he wasn’t sure what sustainable resource could be used instead.

Sustainability is definitely a buzzword right now, and with good reason.  We don’t want to waste limited resources more than we already have.  That’s why I think the research being done to find alternatives to nuclear power is commendable.

  1. Definitely imagine that that you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to take note of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while other folks consider issues that they just don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also outlined out the whole thing without having side effect , folks can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks!
