With the severity of what just happened, it shouldn't be aired at all.

I know i feel sick right now. I know so many people who are ignoring this, and dont want to talk about it. How messed up is that? They all say "oh i care I just dont want to think about it" To me if you can ignore something like this then you dont care about it. How could you not care?


Because were conditioned to power w.nk over disaster porn movies shown in the movies, on TV consistently and we become desensitised to watching "imaginary" people dying left right and center and supposed to enjoy this. But when it happens for real the news censors the real coverage because they don't think us 'sheeple' can handle the truth that mother nature is more powerful than any hollywood special-effects. So were supposed to be spoon-fed and told its alright because the experts have it under control.

What a joke the news has become.

It's quite sad to realise how selfish some people can be. I realise it's a survival mechanism, and also maybe a way of dealing with trauma.

I consider myself pretty desensitized due to all the wars/terrorism/disasters of the past few years shown non stop on TV - but it doesn't mean I don't care...and I think today has made me softer somehow.

I hope the situation will bring some better news soon (especially the nuclear reactors).

Thanks for the reply.

Even if a meltdown does start there should still be plenty of time, maybe even days before major catastrophe.
And it is reversable as long as the coolant can get back in the system.
I refer you to the Three mile Island incident as to a precedent as what has happened in the past when there has been a loss of coolant.

Of course different situations may not react the same, lets just hope they can get it sorted as fast as possible.

Not only that, what about our subliminal minds. I personally have been killing millions of people in computer games for 20 years. What does that do to a subliminal mind. What does all the "end of the world" movies do to the subliminal mind.


Was kind of meaning the same thing really, and that the subliminal is one of the ways of influencing the subconscious/unconscious. (sumbliminal means below conscious perception too, and isn't actually a mind in itself.) I'm rapidly going off track though so will leave it there! Agreed with what you generally mean though.

Id set rules in society, create a moral system so people would be kind to each other and not create any bitter, hell wishing humans like yourself

well good at least they will have time when they know there is nothing that can be done, except i feel for those still trapped if any who have not been found. and i bet it has been hard to search due to the "normal" aftershocks rocking them by the minute

I just scrolled back through my QuakeFeed app and have seen only japan, a couple hawaii, a couple Alaska, one Nicaragua, one Oklahoma, and a couple of arkansas quakes listed since the 8.9(9.1) and nothing else. It's set to show 2.5 and higher worldwide.

This is a somewhat disturbing realization.

Are any of the quake/volcano regulars watching this thread?

Any input would be GREATLY appreciated.


I don't quite fancy myself a "quake regular" yet but I have been watching earthquakes daily since Haiti last year. I was worried at the time. What exactly is your disturbing realization? That earthquakes below 2.5 are not listed?

I just watched on CNN that the town Minamisoma population 71 thousand was completely washed away. They showed footage of it. It was horrible you couldnt see any survivors. They said they are not sure if there are any.


Hey just a thought why would they have not added that to the death toll? Is it a possibility that they were able to evacuate people before time or are they just not sure how many people have died? 71 thousand just knocks me down but I am not seeing that number or anything close to that number being reported in the death toll.

Governments usually don't cite fatalities without proof of recovered bodies.

That's going to take a very long time....and some people will NEVER be found.

Very bad news... the company who run the nuclear powerplant has run into many safety scandals over the years... So...

The whole document on their ``performance`` over the years...

Cutting corners seems to be the motto at this corporation.

We live in Tokyo. Let me tell you, the quake lasted quite a while. It was strange watching all the cars shake and buildings sway. Also, we were very unnerved at just how "liquid" the earth felt below our feet. We're staying home for a while, not going out. A friend of ours is reporting that travel on the expressways is painfully slow.

Ok last year the first major quake was in California, a magnitude5.5 if I recall properly. When I saw this I realized that due to the movement of the north american plate away from the northern rim of the Caribbean plate, room was created for movement of the Caribbean plate, particularly along the cayman trench resulting in the Haiti earthquake, and the 5.8 of the coast of grand cayman. This also increased the number of microquakes along the Puerto Rico trench.

The Movement of the pacific plate against the north american plate, caused the lower portion of the pacific plate to push against the nazca plate, causing the cocos plate to shift to the east and north slightly. This gave the caribbean plate under the pressure of three large plates room for rotation resulting in a seeming belt of seismic activity from haiti to mexico. This rotation added extra pressure to the cocos plate and consequently the nazca plate, this resulted in our chile earthquake as the nazca plate overcame the stress and slid underneath the south american plate. This consequently caused the southeastern portion of the pacific plate to move with the nazca plate building preasure min new zealand, hence the new zealand earthquake. This added stress to the North North eastern tip of the australian plate resulting in the massive china quake.

Of course there were other quakes in between but I can't recall. However with the pacific plate making a big movement underneath the eurasian plate, it is likely that pressure has built in alaska, south america and the west coast. More so alaska and the west coast. However if the energy is released a little at a time there might not be an issue. Also watch oceana. Point the next quake is going to be in the ring of fire, if its west coast the Caribbean could be affected.

Not wanting to sound alarmist, but has anyone thought about the wider implications. I mean globally.

Isn't Japan the second or third biggest economy right now? I remember seeing something a few years back on the BBC that if Tokyo was hit by the big one then the world stock markets would plunge and there'd be a global depression. Also that electronic goods would triple in price, things like that.

And if a meltdown occurs, how much of Japan is rendered uninhabitable? Isn't there a 30 mile exclusion zone around Chernobyl? And that's a reactor core that was contained.

I'm just thinking out loud here guys but would welcome any input.

Should I be stocking up on food over the next few days? Sorry, but I can't be the only one to have thought this...

looks like they are using the warning time


About 20,000 people are being evacuated from the vicinity of Fukushima plant #fukushima #japan #tsunam
