New Mexico’s Largest Forest Wildfire – Photos

A huge wildfire has burnt more than 170,000 acres of New Mexico.

This is the largest fire in New Mexico history.

The wildfire had already burnt  265 square miles of the Gila National Forest.

It burnt buildings, houses and trees.

The wildfire may spread to the area where a big nuclear power plant, Los Alamos National Laboratory is situated.

If  the Los Alamos National Laboratory caught fire, it can cause nuclear radiation around the area.

Wildfire is a disaster, in this case it is a natural disaster because fire officials said it was caused by lighting on May 16, 2012.

People lost their valuable items and the country lost the precious trees.

It took years and years for those trees to grow.

Huge wildfire also releases a large amounts of carbon dioxide and lots and lots of smoke.

That causes air pollution and a lot of health problems.

The smoke can make a very large area hazy and may cause accidents.

I am very sad and sorry for the people who lost their homes, trees and other valuable items.

Looking at the photos reminds of Micheal Jackson’s Earth Song video clip.

It very sad for the world to lost that much trees in only a short time.

25th Anniversary Of Chernobyl Nuclear Accident – Part 1

These are the photos of the ghost city of Prypiat.

The city was abandoned since 25 years ago because of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident on April 26, 1986.

The city used to be very nice and beautiful but now it looks so sad, ugly and scary.

I think that we should stop building new nuclear power plant because it can be very, very dangerous.

(Please click here for my post on ‘Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Disaster’).

Nuclear power plant can cause dangerous nuclear radiation if a disaster happen and a big area has to be abandoned for a long, long time.

Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant Disaster

In this video image taken from NTV Japan via APTN, smoke raises from Fukushima Daiichi power plant's Unit 1 in Okumamachi, Fukushima prefecture, Japan, Saturday, March 12, 2011. The walls of a building at the nuclear power station crumbled Saturday as smoke poured out, and Japanese officials said they feared the reactor could melt down following the failure of its cooling system in a powerful earthquake and tsunami.

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.

In these combo images made from Japan's NHK television, the Fukushima Daiichi power plant's Unit 1 is seen before (top) and after (bottom) an explosion in Okumamachi, Fukushima prefecture, Japan, Saturday, March 12, 2011. The walls of the building at the nuclear power station crumbled Saturday as smoke poured out and Japanese officials said they feared the reactor could melt down following the failure of its cooling system in a powerful earthquake and tsunami. The damaged structure of Unit 1 can be seen at left after the walls crumbled.
