Meltdown The Nuclear Disaster in Japan and Our Energy

Japan March 11 2011 246 PM The biggest earthquake in Japan's history and one of the world's five most powerful since 1900 devastated the Tohoku region 320 kilometers 200 miles northeast of Tokyo It triggered a huge tsunami that left crippling damage in its wake More than 13000 people drowned and thousands of buildings and homes were reduced to rubble As people assessed the damage they made the most frightening discovery of all the Fukushima nuclear power plant was seriously damaged and three of its six reactors were heading for meltdowns Workers tried desperately but unsuccessfully to save them Explosions and fires released radioactivity into the air Within days the Japanese government declared a 20 kilometer 12 mile evacuation zone The future of the plant the long term health of those exposed to radiation and the effects on the environment remained uncertainLearnabout this massive catastrophe as Dr Fred Bortz examines both the human tragedy and the scientific implications of the nuclear meltdown Compare this disaster to similar nuclear events in the United States and in Ukraine and move ahead with Dr Bortz as he explores the global debate about the future of nuclear power and alternative sources of energy Japan March 11 2011 246 PM The biggest earthquake in Japan's history and one of the world's five most powerful since 1900 devastated the Tohoku region 320 kilometers 200 miles northeast of Tokyo It triggered a huge tsunami that left crippling damage in its wake More than 13000 people drowned and thousands of buildings and homes were reduced to rubble As people assessed the damage they made the most frightening discovery of all the Fukushima nuclear power plant was seriously damaged and three of its six reactors were heading for meltdowns Workers tried desperately but unsuccessfully to save them Explosions and fires released radioactivity into the air Within days the Japanese government declared a 20 kilometer 12 mile evacuation zone The future of the plant the long term health of those exposed to radiation and the effects on the environment remained uncertainLearnabout this massive catastrophe as Dr Fred Bortz examines both the human tragedy and the scientific implications of the nuclear meltdown Compare this disaster to similar nuclear events in the United States and in Ukraine and move ahead with Dr Bortz as he explores the global debate about the future of nuclear power and alternative sources of energy Japan March 11 2011 246 PM The biggest earthquake in Japan's history and one of the world's five most powerful since 1900 devastated the Tohoku region 320 kilometers 200 miles northeast of Tokyo It triggered a huge tsunami that left crippling damage in its wake More than 13000 people drowned and thousands of buildings and homes were reduced to rubble As people assessed the damage they made the most frightening discovery of all the Fukushima nuclear power plant was seriously damaged and three of its six reactors were heading for meltdowns Workers tried desperately but unsuccessfully to save them Explosions and fires released radioactivity into the air Within days the Japanese government declared a 20 kilometer 12 mile evacuation zone The future of the plant the long term health of those exposed to radiation and the effects on the environment remained uncertainLearnabout this massive catastrophe as Dr Fred Bortz examines both the human tragedy and the scientific implications of the nuclear meltdown Compare this disaster to similar nuclear events in the United States and in Ukraine and move ahead with Dr Bortz as he explores the global debate about the future of nuclear power and alternative sources of energy
