Tsunami has been one of the most important, yet disaster natural occurrences that people across the globe have experienced. Until 2004, tsunamis were only considered were to be a part of books and general knowledge, being labeled as a more dormant form of natural disasters that were thought to have been witnessed by individuals of today. The first display of this ferocious being came into books when the monster struck Indonesia; the monstrous waves rose up to almost 30 feet, almost leveling the height of a 5-storie building. The angry Poseidon roared across the belt of Indonesia, gulping down several masses and pieces of building, vehicles, even human beings into nothingness.
The next major hit the Tohoku region of Japan, in the year 2011, also known as the Great Japanese Earthquake. The demon made a disastrous attempt to slit open the land of Japan, not to mention the irrecoverable loss of human resource, numerous injuries, lost individuals who were dragged in the midst of the flow of water and the most disastrous of all - the nuclear plant explosion. Just like the survivors from the bomb the survivors of the recent earthquake and tsunami have had much of their lives ruined, how would you compare the two events? Which do you consider worse?
In life, many things can impede upon people's dreams and make it harder if not impossible to get where they want to go. Once the United States dropped the bomb on Hiroshima, they changed the lives of thousands of people who were living there at the time. The bomb killed many and left the rest wounded and without a place to live. I do not think the bomb can completely ruin the dreams of the people, but I do believe it can defiantly take away from and bring people farther from their goals.
Those who have been waiting for nuclear energy to be revived in the U.S. may have to wait even longer. The devastating aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami event has brought the potential dangers of nuclear reliance to the forefront of the world's attention. This disaster comes at a time when America is vying for alternative energy and was considering nuclear power as a potential option.
This unfortunate natural disaster is likely to inspire those who recently supported nuclear measures to have second thoughts. If public support for nuclear power withdraws, so will any other political or financial assistance to the nuclear industry. "Representatives of the nuclear industry said Saturday that it is too soon to know what impact the disaster in Japan could have on U.S. policy. 'Until we know exactly what happened in the plants, in Japan, it is very hard to know what conclusions to draw,' said Alex Flint, senior vice president of governmental affairs for the Nuclear Energy Institute, a group that lobbies for the industry”.
