... recent tsunami attack on Japan and subsequent problems developed in many of Japan’s nuclear reactors have raised many concerns in the world about the safety and security of using nuclear power as the future energy source. It is a fact that world is facing severe energy shortage at present and many of the available energy sources are going to be finished within a short period of time. Moreover traditional energy sources such as coal, oil etc are causing severe damages to the environment and therefore nuclear power was gaining prominence. One of the major advantages of nuclear power over other conventional energy sources is less environmental problems caused by it. At the same time if some problems...

... engineering ethics issue that occurred during the last four months is the Fukushima nuclear accident. Fukushima was one of four nuclear energy plants located in the island of Japan. The 9.0 earthquake that struck Japan on March 11, 2011 caused damage to the Fukushima plant. The damage was so very severe that it led to radiation leakage. As the crisis was going on at this plant the engineering crews of nuclear plant had some tough ethical decisions to make. It was known that radiation was emitting from the ground at the plant. The engineers needed to make repairs and most of these repairs required human labor. Crews were sent in with full knowledge that these workers could suffer from severe health...

... 20 February, Effect of time and distance on the memories of disasters: Incidents and natural disasters are sudden and come unannounced. There is little compliance of nature’s schedule with the predictions of scientists and weather forecasts made by humans. They happen anywhere, anytime and for any reason but leave behind their traces in the minds of the affected people. However, the extent to which an individual may gain influence from the effects of a disaster depends, to much an extent on the individual’s encounter with the disaster. There has been considerable time since the atomic bomb explosions in the Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but still the nuclear power has affected the genes of people living...

Nonetheless, natural disasters have existed throughout human history. Different nations have stories of their loss and suffering because of natural disasters. It is during times of natural disasters that the element of solidarity in humanity surfaces.
