Inside Japan’s Nuclear Meltdown
Inside Japan’s Nuclear Meltdown is a brand new documentary by PBS that looks at Japan’s Nuclear fallout following the March, 2011 9.0 Earthquake that rocked the coastline and provoked a devastating Tsunami. PBS revisits the devastated country a year later and interviews the survivors and witnesses. THIS IS THEIR STORY
Japan is new stranger to Nuclear Fallouts. After all, this is the country that first tasted the might and horror of the Atomic Bomb. When the earthquake hit, Japan had 55 nuclear reactors that accounted for 30% of all electricity in the country. Now, Japanese are scared about possible side effects from the reactors. The earthquake did not result in too much nuclear damage – but the risk is there. Can Japan live without Nuclear Energy? Can they live without it?
This documentary was released at the end of February, 2012 and shows the aftermath from that terrible natural disaster.
Stops after 15 minutes.
you have to goto the pbs video website to watch the whole doc.
Ok, I’ll try it. Tks.
Not to nitpick but the title is incorrectly spelled. It’s nuclear and not nucleur. lol I know spelling police are irritating…
Great doc! Scary deal with the plant for sure.
Hmm, let me see…design a plant on the coastline where the only system for cooling the core is in the vulnerable basement that can be flooded. Do I even have to say bad design?
To an outside observer, watching humans bumble about on earth must be similar to adults watching a group of kids play in a gun shop.
The bad design was in the fact that the company had ignored warnings that their tsunami defenses were inadequate. They had plenty of systems and back up systems for cooling the core, but it all relied on there being power from the backup generators and whatnot. If the had maintained proper tsunami defenses, they would of been able to handle it no problem.
