First a look at the effects on the biosphere, or all parts of the living earth. Life on earth was, and still is, dramatically affected by the disaster of Fukushima. The dangerous and harmful effects that hurt animals, marine life, and humans is observed and monitored both near and far from the
This paper will address how the Fukushima Nuclear Power plant violated the following NSPE Canons of Engineering Ethics: holding the paramount of safety, health, and welfare of the public, and avoiding deceptive acts. The misjudgment and underperformance by the engineers during the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake caused a large uproar of
“We may not be suited to this planet, our mind not attuned enough to understand where we live, “ (Pineda, 2012, p. 57). Cecile Pineda, who is the award-winning author of Devil’s Tango: How I Learned the Fukushima Step by Step, puts into question the human suitability of this planet. Having been published a year after the accident at Fukushima, Pineda pieces together the nuclear incidents that occurred at Chernobyl and Fukushima. Through her comparisons and records of the horrifying aftermath of the incidences, Pineda seeks to expose her readers to the reality of the environmental situation and make them think about the affects nuclear energy has on our planet. Pineda’s work seeks to convey the dangers of nuclear energy through her style of writing, language
When an 9.0 magnitude earthquake rocked Japan on March 11th, 2011, it was the first of a series of horrific events that Japan would be forced to endure. Many homes, families, properties, and belongings were lost on that day. And when the tsunami rolled over the island, many believed that
Event 1. When visiting Aisha Fukushima event on “Story Telling” it was very enjoyable. She mainly talked about the importance of being expressive. She told us to live in the moment and it’s important to express our emotions. It made me think of Paul D Miller, which he talks about how artists express their emotions by the music they create. From the event I understood that hip-hop is very expressive because there is no specific way to perform hip hop, but there are multiple different ways. Towards the end Aisha told the audience that it’s important to write because it releases emotions of a person.
American Samoa suffers from overfishing, water radiation, and canning companies. In order to make canned fish products, fishing companies always over fish in large areas that have fishes. Canneries have left little fish for the people of american samoa, because of their greed. Thankfully they still have other natural resources
While the immediate threat of nuclear war has diminished since the end of the Cold War, nuclear threats remain an imminent concern to be prepared for. Recent events, such as the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster, show us that although the possibility of ICBMs raining down may be less there is still a need to be ready for nuclear radiation.
Topic: Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster Purpose: To inform the audience about the heroic actions of the Fukushima Daiichi cleanup workers.
Recently, the deserted Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant has been emanating an alarming amount of radiation. Kyodo of Japan Times reported that the radiation reading has reached its highest level since its emergence in March 2011 (Kyodo, 2017). As a result, there is a greater presence of air and water
Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster
The oceanic pollution that resulted from the discharge of radioactive materials following the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station was a concern not only for the coastal population of Fukushima, but also for countries facing the Pacific Ocean. This called for rapid clarification of the actual dispersal situation by oceanic monitoring, but there were limits to collect water samples by ships, and it was difficult to gain an adequate understanding.
Nuclear Energy is the Best Option for Society “Why I Still Support Nuclear Power, Even After Fukushima” written by William Tucker, nuclear energy is still the best option for the contemporary society we live in today. Tucker goes on to explicate “The events in Japan have confirmed many of the critics’ worst predictions” (Tucker 228). Tucker then examines two other nuclear accidents, Three Mile Island, & Chernobyl. Tucker acknowledges that there is still a very serious threat of contamination that is widespread. Then he gives some facts to show that the other industries have had bad accidents also. In one incident 130 people were killed in a natural gas accident that occurred in Cleveland in 1944, the accident leveled a whole neighborhood. Tucker
Why Nuclear Power should be banned Chernobyl, Fukushima and Three Mile Island — all known as major nuclear power disasters. Nuclear power might be a good source of power, but in the long run it can be a real hazard and should be banned. If we rely on nuclear power to be our primary power source, it will cause major problems to humans and the environment. Nuclear power is hard to dispose of, expensive to run, and the reactors can easily be disrupted and cause the release of massive amounts of radiation.
Often times before they get the chance to return to Japan to reproduce, further depleting their numbers. Turns out that some of these tuna, which were born last year in the radioactive waters of Japan after the Fukushima nuclear reactor meltdown, have carried their radioactivity to the United States. Though most of the Bluefin tuna caught here are shipped right back to Japan, the fish ends up on more and more American plates every year as the demand for sushi, and this delectable animal, increases. The radioactive chemicals present in the fish do not pose a health risk to people, fortunately, as they're still below the dangerous levels set by the US
Hukushima Nuclear Meltdown is one of the most horrible disasters in modern days. Technology that was meant to benefit human turned against people, changing the nature into the dead land. What I knew about this incident was that the reactor exploded in the nuclear power plant, resulting a critical amount of radioactive particles into the ocean. However, I did not know that there was a film taken in the power plant at the very moment of the disaster. Yesterday, my roommate told me that going into the reactor area in order to shut down the reactor manually was ranked as the most expensive part time job. Payment was 8000 dollars in an hour, but it was risking the life of those who went in. Ironically, there were limited people to get in because
