It is a sorrowful story of what has happened in Japan and I don't want to take away any sympathy for the people suffering from the many natural and technological horror put to them in the past week. There are 2 main thoughts though about not being informed about how coastal development and extreme technological advancement can impact negatively in case of disaster. So, listen to environmentalists and be vigilant about safety.


1. It was shortsighted to build Nuke Reactors by the Earthquake coast facing the Pacific Ocean in the heart of your prime Food, Agricultural Land & Coast, putting North America's West Coast at risk if there is any accidental Fallout.

2. 4 Nuclear Reactors are in Melt Down... innocent Civilians in Japan have been devastated due to poor planning and placement because of their Government's short sighted Energy & Nuclear Agenda. Now the Japanese desperately pumping Seawater into them.

3. Nuclear fallout is not limited to Japan, radioactive fallout follows weather patterns now heading over the Pacific to Canada's coast.

4. Radioactive Isotopes and material from these reactors have a half life of about only 250,000 years, various isotopes more or even much less which is 4 X that of Chernobyl's.

Let's not be alarmist....the words "melt-down" are not applicable ( yet ) as far as I could make out from listening to various experts around the world this morning ( on TV/radio )
And right now, I think we would be better off thinking of the horrors that are unfolding for thousands of families in Japan......not to mention the possibility of another large earthquake happening this week.
