Explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant caused more serious disaster to Japan after a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami.

At least 10,000 people were killed in the earthquake and tsunami disasters.

This is the world’s most serious nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine in 1986.

Nuclear power plant is a place where people produce electricity.

But nuclear radiation is very, very dangerous.

It can kill human, animals and plants and it can also caused cancer.

It could cause a big disaster and the effect will last for a long, long time.

This is the worst nuclear disaster in Japan after the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings in 1945.

The USA still do not say it was a 9.0 earthquake, I believe this was the first lie told by the industry. It seems funny Japan said it was a 7 or less but we were told that the person reading the meter made a mistake. Was this the first day of work for a new worker and was not trained on how to read a simple chart that a 10 year old can do in 10 minutes of training. They think we are sheep and believe any thing they say.

Dear Mr. Richard Perry,
Yes, I agree with you. At first they even said that the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant disaster was not very bad. I think they fear people may not want to visit Japan and buy food from Japan because of the nuclear radiation.
This will hurt their economy. I learn about the effect of nuclear radiation to the economy from Sim City 3000 Unlimited :mrgreen:.

Ahmad Ali,

Nobody has died yet as a result of the accident in Fukushima.
Electricity is not ‘made’, it is generated.
Nuclear radiation is very dangerous, which is why it needs to be used carefully and safely. Like a pistol or a knife. More people have died from knives.
But we have to use knives because we need it.. We just have to be very very careful. You cannot guarantee that one day you don’t cut yourself.

Nuclear power plants have been around for 50 some years, and we have had few accidents. Yes they are still bad.

Nuclear power generation is the cleanest form of electricity generation, than burning coal. Coal mines have accidents too. Building dams and wind farms need a lot of space so they destroy a lot of rainforest and land. Many animals die and lost their homes. Nuclear power generation saves the rainforest, the rivers and the ozone layer.

Dear Khadijah,
Thank you for writing and pointing my mistake about ‘making electricity’.
I still think that nuclear power plant is too dangerous for us. An accident can kill lots of people, animals and plants and a very, very big area will be exposed to nuclear radiation for a long, long time. If this happens, it will be a bigger disaster than building wind farms and dams and cost us more money.
If it can happen in Japan, it can happen to other countries too.
