             Japan
faces worst crisis 'since WWII'

 

 

The earthquake that occurred in Japan, had a massive
negative impact on them. People in Japan are calling this the worst crisis
since the bomb that was dropped during World War II. Many people died, lost
their homes and lost everything they ever had. On top of that, a nuclear power
plant was damaged as a result of the earthquake and that damage is causing radiation
to be diffused in the air and the waters, which is very dangerous for all
living things around the world. Everyone in Japan is facing a very tough time
due to this earthquake and the ensuing power plant meltdown and this crisis
perhaps is affecting the world in ways yet to be discovered. Overall, Japan
needs our help in order to get back on their feet.

 

How will you help Japan?

I found this article very interesting because it explains all aspects of how Japan is struggling, such as all the homeless people and the nuclear power plant meltdown. I like the article because it includes many details about and how it happened. I also find it interesting because it compares it to the dropping of the bomb during World War 2, people in Japan are calling this the worst crisis since then. Overall I like this article a lot and I find it very interesting.

Wow! I never actually gave thought of that Japan, one of the most advanced countires in this world would suffer such a disaster. And you are right. Japan needs our support to get back on track. Because of the tsunami, there were many nuclear outburts. And this had caused the air to be adulterated and cause illness for the citizens of Japan. I personally can't do anything for Japan right at this moment but I can give empathy to them and so can you. And becasue of the nuclear outburt, radiation had spread to the oceans. And scientists have now found some sampales of radiation in the West Coast of the U.S. Now it wouldn't surprise me that this is the worst crisis that Japan has ever faced so far. Thank you for blogging!

Nuclear Plant

This crisis happening in Japan is like throwing more gasoline in to a burning fire. There was an earthquake in Japan and to make things worst, there was a nuclear plant meltdown. This article would have possibly opened many eyes around the world. This was a really interesting article overall. Thank you so much for blogging this. It has the potential of inspiring many people to help Japan back on their feet.
