Transcript of Fukushima Radiation in Japan










Negatives:
Current plans estimate over
$100 billion
to clean up the mess, yet the government has stopped funding some parts of the aid.
It will take over 30 years to clean up the debris and radiation, yet efforts have
slowed
down tremendously.



Fukushima Radiation in Japan
The Problem:
The Stakeholders:
The Solution:
What Happened?
On March 11th, 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit Japan, causing a tsunami to
form.
What it Caused:
The meltdown of the Fukushima Plant released radioactive material into a 3 kilometer area.
Effects Today:
Debris is still washing up on the west coast of the United States, as well as Japan.
Stakeholder #1: The Energy Companies
Stakeholder #2: The Media:
Stakeholder #3:
The Japanese Government:
Positives:
Provided money to help with the clean-up.
Stakeholder #4: Surrounding Countries:
Step #1: Use the media:
The media will show that the earthquake and tsunami disaster is still causing
problems, even though
it's been over 3 years.
Step #2: Find an alternative energy source:
Sources of hydro-power and wind power are readily available in the Japanese islands, and are environmentally friendly.
Step #3: Get other countries to help:
If other countries were to do more to help with clean up efforts and cost in Japan, then everything would go much more quickly and efficiently.
The next day, the 15 meter tsunami hit the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant, causing a huge meltdown.
Over 5,800 people were ordered to evacuate.
15,884 people died due to
the earthquake, tsunami,
and nuclear radiation disaster.
A huge area of Japan still isn't safe for people to occupy due to health risks from radiation.
I hate everything this class sucks
Positives:

Nuclear energy is a cheap, efficient way to provide energy.
Negatives:

Nuclear energy is bad for the environment.
Japan is earthquake prone, so another meltdown could occur and displace people even longer.
Positives:
Could
aid Japan in the relief and aid, but haven't.
Negatives:
Don't see the disaster as a problem anymore, even though it is affecting numerous countries, such as the U.S. and China.
The radiation is affecting ecosystems in the Pacific Ocean, yet still nobody but Japan has helped with the clean up.
Positives
:
Can provide people with the effects of the nuclear disaster, and show that they are long lasting effects.

Finding a new source of energy will insure that an accident like this doesn't happen again.
Negatives:
Doesn't seem to think the problem is big enough to broadcast anymore, even though problems are still present today.
